Then have a go at these questions (see how far you can get- they get trickier as they go along.  If it gets too tricky then stop!).  When it says objects in the classroom… you need to find objects at home instead smiley

Answers here...


Get someone to test you on the spellings you have been practising this week.


Adding the Prefix -anti to words

How many words can you think of that start with the prefix anti-?

I’ll start you off… anticlockwise, antifreeze…

Use a dictionary to help (if you don't have one ask a grown up to help you find an online one or a dictionary app).

Then work through the PowerPoint below:

RE - The Easter Story

Look at this PowerPoint which tells the Easter Story:

Your challenge is to retell the Easter story in a creative way.  You could…

  • Act out part of the story
  • Get someone to record you retelling the story out loud
  • Draw some pictures with captions
  • Make a comic strip with speech bubbles
  • Make some finger puppets 
  • Use Lego or other construction or play figures
  • Paint a picture to show the main part of the story
  • Design an Easter Egg to show the main part of the story

Whatever way you can think of!



Here are a few more ideas...

If you are stuck use these pictures and captions to help…

It would be great if you could send some photos in of what you have created.  You can be as creative as you like!  Good luck smiley
