We have been so impressed with all the home learning going on at home. Had we been at school this week, we would have looked closely at the Easter story. Some of you have already explored this as part of the home learning already and a couple of you have asked for extra resources. Should you wish to explore this further or need extra ideas, we thought it would be useful to share the resources we use to support our planning when teaching about this special time. Please read the document ‘Lent/Easter Planning’ before looking at the supporting resources. We also would have been doing lots of fun and exciting Easter activities (including an egg hunt!) and wouldn’t want the children to miss out on any of these, so we have included some lovely Easter craft ideas to do at home as well. We have also included 'If you are bored' documents (under home learning) with lots of fun and creative activities you can all enjoy as a family ... just in case there are moments of boredom!
We hope you all have a wonderful Easter and hope you enjoy some quality time with your children!

Over the past week, rainbows started to spring up in people’s windows to spread hope during this time, and for children to spot in people’s windows as they go out for a walk. As a little extra challenge have a go at creating a rainbow to stick in your window using any materials you might have in your house.
Why not tune into Shonette Bason's Spread the Happiness YouTube channel for some fun Fine motor exercises! The children love doing 'dough disco' at school, so they will know exactly what to do! Don't worry if you have no play dough in the house - a sponge or other squishy household items will do!
You can tune in daily at 9:30am on the following link
Every Friday we will be uploading weekly reading challenges for you to do, so keep an eye out for them! Your challenge will be attached below.
