Rabbits Home Learning – The Last Day of Term!

Good morning Rabbits and it’s almost the real holidays.  How exciting!  If we were in school I would have planned a lot of fun activities for your all, so here are my ‘remote learning’ activities to keep you busy today.

Crafts and Art:   These are some wonderful craft making videos and are easy to follow:

Puzzles: This website offers printable wordsearches with themes including Easter.

I have also included a pdf which is an Easter Story comprehension.  I have not given the answers, but I will post these later today.

Easter Comprehension Friday 3rd  click on this to link to the pdf.

PSHE:  we would usually be spending an hour talking and working together – which is impossible now and I know many of you are missing one another.  I would like us all to do a task – to draw a field full of rabbits and each one is a member of our class.  Write on the rabbit the things that you like most about your classmate.  I will do the same today and I will post my picture at the end of the day.  If you can photograph and email your pictures to me, we will put up a Rabbits gallery.

Have a lovely, lovely Easter holiday.  I miss you all very much and look forward to when we all return to school in the future.

Rabbits Home Learning for Thursday 2nd April

Good Morning Rabbits and I hope you are still enjoying yourselves.  I have had some photographs from you getting stuck into the fun and learning which is lovely to see.  For today, there are some more activities and the following things for you to do.

Maths:  Please log on to MyMaths for some shape revision and please have a go at the TTRockstars.  Miss Whit does a round up of the winning house each week.

English: Please can you work on the grammar and comprehension tasks set on Education City.  I also set some tasks on ReadingEggspress for today and tomorrow.  These will help with reading and also your writing.  The tasks should be set under my name now – not Mrs Hollis.  I have solved the glitch!

Writing: Please complete a diary entry for today.  I would like you to imagine that you are your pet, imagine what they are making of you staying home all of the time?  What would your pet be saying if they could write their own diary about how odd things are at the moment?  Please remember to include the date and write it as if it happened in the past.

Exercise: Keep up with Joe Wicks if you can.  I know some of you are able to get out for nice walks so that is important.

Reading: Reading Eggs have two good books for you to read.  Can you also take a look at the youtube link to listen to the Enid Blyton book “Castle Of Adventure” and try to get that finished by the end of the week.

Rabbits Home Learning for Wednesday 1st April

Happy April Fool’s Day and pinch, punch, first of the month to you all.

Reading and Comprehension:  Well Rabbits, for a bit of a change, I have set some lovely reading work on ReadingEggs but you need to click on to the ReadingEggspress – there you will find a picture of yourself – there will be a note from me to explain how to do the reading tasks.  There are also spellings for you to work through.  Remember to look for the two books that I have chosen for you to read.  They are quite funny, Pirates and Shark’s Fin Island.  If you click on ‘library’ they are there for you to open and read.

Maths: There are a few My Maths tasks set and you can work through these until the end of the week.  I have included fractions, shape and some general addition tasks to keep your little grey cells (brains) well oiled.

Cards:  I hope you were able to find some things to make an Easter Card.  I found this lovely instruction film of making paper rabbits for Easter – have a look and see if you can make them too.  Send me photos of your bunnies please!

Keep on sending your pictures of the lovely activities that you have been doing whilst at home.  It is lovely to see how much fun you are all having.

Rabbits home learning Tuesday 31st March

Good Morning Rabbits

I hope you had fun making cards yesterday – let me have pictures when you have finished them won’t you?

Today:  English Grammar  these are set on Education City and should keep you busy with fronted adverbials.

Maths:  there are maths tasks on My Maths – these are fractions and division tasks.  Do your best!

Writing:  Can you please take the key words from this week’s spelling list and write up full sentences with each word.

Topic:  I have been seeing some wonderful topic activities that you have been doing.  Remember to take a task from the grid that we made and work on something different today.  You might like to think about the daily act of kindness at this time of year.  Again, keep a note of this in your diary.

I hope you enjoy today’s activities.  I miss you all!  Mrs Cooke

Rabbits step-by-step guide to making an Easter Chick card.

Good morning Rabbits – well it’s the last day of the month today and I thought it was time to get making some cards for Easter.  I hope you practiced some of those key words from the spelling list to avoid making little mistakes.

I have photographed myself making the card in a step-by-step method and also written down the instructions below. Good luck!

IMG_8083 IMG_8086 IMG_8091 IMG_8093 IMG_8095 IMG_8096 IMG_8097 IMG_8098 (1) IMG_8100 IMG_8101ds

Card making:  Take some paper and draw an oval shape.  It needs to be about the size of your hand.  Put your fingers together and draw around the outside of your hand then ‘perfect’ the shape by re-drawing until you have the correct egg-shape.

Draw a zig-zag line towards the top – as if the top of the egg is cracking open.

Colour your egg in any design you like.

Cut the zig-zag lines so that you have two pieces of egg now, cut open as if you have cut the top off a boiled egg.

Now draw a little chick’s head.  A circle and a beak, 2 eyes and yellow fluff or coloured pen/pencil.

Stick the chick at the top of the egg as if it is poking out of its egg.  When you are happy with the position you can then stick the top of the egg onto the chick’s head.

Fold a piece of paper into a card shape, stick the egg and chick onto the card.  The rest is up to you!  I have included photos of the activity for you to follow.

Rabbits Learning and Activities for Monday 30th March

Good morning Rabbits and I hope you had a lovely weekend.

I had a great time googling some wonderful activity and learning sites for you and here is a list of the best ones that I found.

New Learning Games:  National Geographic have some super games that are about our world and environment.

Dinosaurs:  I know that some of you are really keen on learning about dinosaurs, the Natural History Museum has a great page with lots of interesting information about the earliest fossils and what dinosaurs did.  Have a look.

The Castle Of Adventure:  I managed to find a version on youtube of the book that we began reading in class.  It lasts for 2 hours but you can listen in short sections.

Esio Trot:  this is a lovely version of the Roald Dahl book that some of you were reading this term.

Pillow Case Challenge:  Thinking about shape, I have been trying out a test for you all to do yourselves and photograph it.  Take a pillow case and fold it to make another shape, you should be able to make triangles, squares, a hexagon and an octagon.  I have just about managed to make a pentagon.  Fold corners, remember that you might need to keep re-folding to make a simple shape such as a triangle.

Maths and English: There are maths and English tasks set for you on Education City and MyMaths.  Please keep on working through these.

Spellings:  There is a new list today.  Please copy these words out for handwriting practice, then use some of them in some Easter Cards that you will create for your family.

Easter Cards:  Follow the instructions for making a pretty Easter card for your family and friends.

Have a lovely day!  Mrs Cooke

Rabbits Home Learning Activities for Friday 27th March

Good morning Rabbits and Happy Friday to you all.  I hope you are all keeping well and keeping busy.  From the lovely photographs you have sent in, it looks like you are having a lot of fun at home and enjoying yourselves.

I have put some more activities on MyMaths and Education City for you.  I have tried to vary the activities and games to make it more fun.


Education City plus fill in your diary please.  It might also be nice to get a piece of paper and a pencil (or pen) and write a letter to the person who has been learning with you this week, either your parent or other adult.  Write a little note to thank them for all the things that they have helped you to do this week.  Remember the date at the top and your address!


The MyMaths tasks are a little bit easy today, but it is also good for you to remember how to do simple tasks.  Try to keep up your scores.  Also, can you remember how we talked about all the maths that we do every day without realising?  Think about telling the time, seeing how long something lasts, how long until your favourite TV show starts or what time you go to bed and get up – how many hours sleep do you get?  Try some ‘real maths’ at home today.  How many shapes can you see in your kitchen?


Joe Wicks is proving to be really popular so keep on with that!


I hope you are able to snuggle up with a good book – I have read almost half of my book so far!  Go and look at Reading Eggs and Eggspress for the choice of books that I have found – they are myths and mysteries and all rather good.


Please do your best writing when you are filling in your diary or writing that letter.  If you have coloured pens you could decorate your writing, making big capital letters and colouring them in using patterns.  Have some fun.

Most Important is have a lot of fun doing your activities.  Enjoy the weather and be nice to one another!  Take care and have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Cooke

Rabbits home activities for Thursday 26th March

Good Morning Rabbits – how lovely to see some photographs of the things that you have been doing.  I really loved the shields and castles.  How creative you are!  I am also so impressed with your my maths.  Goodness me, some of you are getting 100% each time.  I have set you some more fun things today but if that sun is still shining, make sure you get outside too!


Some MyMaths tasks are set.  Also, we would be doing fractions next week – I have set tasks but it might be more fun to do some ‘sharing’ to find fractions of amounts.  I am sure you can find things at home – lego bricks, raisins, marbles etc and share between different numbers of your teddy bears or toys.  Keep track of how many toys get how many items.  Baking is also great for working out fractions – dividing your mixture between 8 people for example will give you 1/8 of the amount.


I hope you are all writing up your diary.  I am sure you have some lovely things to write about each day.  Don’t forget I love pictures too.  Education City has tasks set for your and it is always good to listen to stories.  Have a look at the podcast by David Walliams each day.


You have some spellings on your list.  Keep on with these and then I will set some more words for next week.  I thought you might like some Easter themed words and some Spring time words.  Have a look for those on Monday.


I see you have been busy making lovely castles and items from the theme on Shrewsbury Castle.  Don’t forget you could build a castle den and show me the results.


Please, please, please keep on with your reading.  I was out in my garden today reading a book that I have wanted to read for ages.  Get out in that sunshine or lounge about on the sofa with a great book.  You could read it to a teddy bear if your adults are busy.  Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress have some books and activities.  There are class books set for you all to read and discuss later.


I hope you were able to do the Joe Wicks exercise – I was pretty tired out after that this morning.  I did a lot of gardening afterwards which is also fabulous exercise.  See if your adults have something that you can do to help get the garden ready for spring.  Maybe next week you can sort out places for Easter Egg trails?

Have a lovely day.  Let me know how you are all getting on.  Take care of yourselves and your families.
