Easter Activities

During the Easter Holidays, teachers will not be posting on a daily basis specific work for pupils, however you could look back and complete activities which you may have missed or not had time to do!

Furthermore, you could try out these suggested activities:

  • Watch a ‘Virtual Church Service’ from Holy Trinity Church in Shrewsbury (Sunday 10.30am) – https://www.achurchnearyou.com/church/4493/service-and-events/events-regular/
  • Complete some Easter Activities kindly sent to us by the Lichfield Diocese Easter home pack
  • It’s a great time to learn how to do Sudoku – http://www.dailysudoku.co.uk/sudoku/kids/
  • Continue reading plenty of books and write a book review. You could use these to help you: KS1 Review or Lower KS2 or Upper KS2
  • Use nRich to find maths problems for all ages (parents included!) https://nrich.maths.org/primary
  • Now the weather is finally warming up, you could explore your garden (or when on a daily walk) and find mini-beasts! Make a record of what you find! Could you make a house for them? Write a report about them!
  • Find the oldest item in your house (no – not your parents!) and find out where it came from, why your family now has it and how old it is!
  • Ask your parents if you can help with preparing meals – could you write instructions how to do it?
  • Draw a picture of what you want to be when you grow up!
  • Make a model from your recycling bin! You might find an idea here: https://www.activityvillage.co.uk/recycling-crafts
  • Take a daily star jump (or sit-ups or shuttle runs or burpees) challenge! Count how many you can do in a minute on Day 1, then repeat every day. Do you get fitter? Can you do more each day? Older pupils could draw a bar chart to show their results!
  • Build a shelter in your garden! It could be for you, your parents/carers or even for your favourite teddy!
  • Access some really interesting resources and ideas with Nat Geo Kids https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/
  • Take a virtual tour of the National History Museum https://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/virtual-museum.html

Have a great Easter

Rabbits Class Virtual PSHE Lesson

I asked the Rabbits to spend the time thinking about their classmates and to create a drawing of rabbits to represent each of the class members.  They have also added some words to describe each of their friends.  These lovely pictures were sent by Andreas, Ella and Harrison this morning.  Thank you for doing such a lovely task to keep in contact with your classmates.  Added to this is Amber’s lovely picture.

Hedgehogs home learning Friday 3rd April

Happy Friday Hedgehogs!

I’m sure you are looking forwards to Easter, and the next two weeks would have been your ‘Easter holiday’. We won’t be setting any home learning tasks during the holiday period, but you can revisit the tasks you have been set over the last two weeks and carry out any you missed or repeat those that you really enjoyed!

Don’t eat too many chocolate eggs and Easter sweets!

Fine motor skills

Today you can print out or copy the design for making an Easter chick.

Chick 3rd April 2020


Please think about the phonics you did yesterday on Education City. You can do it again if you wish before carrying out todays task…

Year 1 – can you put the tricky words from yesterday in to a sentence?

Reception – can you play ‘eye spy’ with a grown up? What sound does the object you can see start with? Can you write the letter to match the sound?


Use the photographs you took yesterday to write down the instructions for the task you did. Ask an adult to help you if you aren’t sure – you can write the sentences together perhaps.

Don’t forget to start a new line for each new part of the instruction.

Remember to start each sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop.

Use words such as first, then, next, after that, finally, lastly etc to start your sentences.


Year 1 – your multiplication lesson is set up on MyMaths

Reception – Collect some objects from around your house. Can you make a number line with them? Put 1 object in its own set first, then 2 in the next set, then 3 in the next set, all the way up to 10 and beyond! Can you write the numeral to go with each set of objects? What would happen if you joined two sets together? for example if you joined the set 3 and 1 together, how many would you have altogether?


Please log on to Reading Eggs to carry out an activity in ‘My Lessons’.


Todays yoga is based on the story ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’.

Golden Time

I hope you enjoyed playing a board game together with someone in your house last week. It would be lovely if you made time every Friday afternoon to play a board game with other people in your house please. If you don’t have a board game, I’m sure you can find virtual games to play together online or to print out (www.twinkl.co.uk have some good ones) and you might even have board games for your Xbox or PlayStation!


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.  https://www.puzzles-to-print.com/easter-puzzles/index.shtml

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.

Mrs Cooke
