I hope that you have had a wonderful break; it has been an odd two weeks but thankfully we have had good weather so I am sure you made full use of your time outdoors.
I received a good few messages during the holidays, with photos and videos and it is amazing to see how everyone has filled their time - with many of you doing things on our Lively Lock-down List - do click here to check our Easter Holiday page to see lots of examples .
As we begin what looks like at least 3 more weeks of home learning I am excited and looking forward to lots more new knowledge, old skills, fun, creativity and challenge. Please keep in regular touch and let me know what you are doing . Remember, you and your families must decide what's right for you and which things you can manage and remember too that there are learning opportunities in all sorts of things.... even washing up, jobs in the garden, silly games and just being with your family .
Each day I will offer a number of learning opportunities, carefully chosen and adapted to mirror the learning that would have taken place in school had we been open. You may choose to work through these in a structured way... a bit like a school timetable.. or dip in to bits and pieces that catch your eye. There is no expectation that you work in a particular way. I am available for you to contact by email should you want to ask for help, bounce around your ideas or share your work.

Start your day (or workout later) with The Body Coach - Joe Wicks. I've loved seeing your pictures and videos of your family work outs
That was an odd Easter holiday wasn't it? Did you have an eggciting one? Was it a cracking, eggcellent holiday? (did you see what I did there? )
I think it is important that we capture some memories from our unique holiday in our diary. Rather than just write a straight diary entry though I would like you to record it as a series of 'moments' described using different adjectives:
Work in your exercise book at the English end.
1) Date your work
2) Begin 'Dear Diary, I have just finished the most unusual Easter Holiday under lock-down. Here are some moments from my holiday....'
3) Now write a series of moments that capture your unusual holiday...labeling each moment with an adjective; the more detail and explanation the better e.g
Can you think of some interesting adjectives that describe moments from your holiday...busy, boring, hot, lazy, spooky, magical etc?

Our Maths sessions will use a video to teach us and this will ask you to pause from time to time to answer questions. The questions are on a worksheet that you can view on your screen. Answer the questions in your Exercise Book at the Maths end.
You will use the worksheet and the video together.

Before Easter we started to explore Space. We began by looking at our Solar System - The Sun and the planets that orbit it; including Earth. We learnt the names of the planets and their order.
Let's take our learning a little further.
The link below takes you to a BBC web page which contains our learning for today:
1) The LEARN section contains two animations for you to watch and some facts to read and learn
2) The PRACTICE section contains 3 activities for you to do:
Can you draw a star?
Look at the videos below and see if you can draw some amazing stars.
I would love to see them
We can continue to enjoy a story written and read by David Walliams. Find somewhere to relax comfortably and enjoy...
> WHAT ELSE?
ELSE - EXTRA LEARNING, SKILLS and EXPERIENCES
Sometime before you go to bed find 10-15 minutes to read a book...somewhere quiet. Record it in your orange Reading Diary.
