Joke of the Day: 

Why shouldn’t you tell an Easter egg a joke?
It might crack up! cheeky


Start the week with Easter themed Cosmic Yoga:



Challenge 1 - RE

Have a look through your school Bible.

It will soon be Easter and many of us are observing Lent - I know Mrs Stevenson has given up cake and biscuits! Have you given anything up for Lent? Christians do this to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for 40 days and 40 nights in the desert. Can you find that story in your Bible and ask someone to read it to you? Talk about what it means to make the right choices. 

You can also watch this video to find out more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc-x4qKY6Wc


Challenge 2 - Phonics

Watch the 'ir' videos below. Practice reading and writing some 'ir' words in your Literacy book.

Read some 'ir' word with the alphablocks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEAuZcRB_cM

or Watch Geraldine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ta_KKUU-98 

or Read 'ir' words with Mr Thorne: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhRxww2WmpI (Watch out - some of these are really tricky!)


Don't forget the Ruth Miskin You Tube channel are also doing live Read Write Inc phonics teaching every morning too - perfect for recapping. 

Set 1 - 9.30am https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkCVr7oosTo

Set 2 - 10am https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xcz6BwwJc8Y


Challenge 3 - Maths - Sharing

Start today off by practising how to share equally. Collect 10 counting objects and 2 of your teddies. Can you share the objects equally between your teddies? How many did they get each? Now add another teddy to your group - share the objects. Did they share equally? Why not? What do you need to do to share them equally? Try with 4 teddies and a different amount of objects. Continue to practice sharing equally in different ways today. Can you take a photo of your learning and email it to me?

Help Curious George to share equally: https://pbskids.org/curiousgeorge/busyday/dogs/


Challenge 4 - Writing

Help mum or dad to write the shopping list. Try to sound out as many words as you can using the phonemes you know. (Don't forget to sneak 'Easter Egg' onto the list!! wink)


Challenge 5 - Purple Mash

Log on to Purple Mash and have a go at one of the new 2do's that I have set.  https://www.purplemash.com/sch/StJohnsNG4


Missing you all! Keep safe everybody!

We always have a "can do" attitude and believe in nurturing children's love for learning along with giving them the perseverance to always try their very best. Everyday in Foundation is very different and busy. Foundation children love going on bear hunts, trips to the library and to the woodland area for our forest schools sessions!
