Good morning everyone  smiley

We are now going to put activities on to these pages every day to keep you busy as home. You will also be getting some things through the post!


Every day it is important that you......

  • keep active
  • read or listen to stories
  • spend lots of time talking to the people in your house
  • have time to relax


Start to keep a diary so you can look back in the future at what you did.

Include what you have done as well as the other people in your house. Don't forget to structure your sentences with a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stops. Can you challenge yourself by including conjunctions and adjectives too?



Work out the answers to these maths problems. Use jottings to help you.


Oscar has 6 apples and Alfie has 4 apples.

Who has the most apples? How many apples do they have altogether?


Miss Coleman is counting in 2's. She counts: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23

Has she counted right? If she is wrong, can you put correct it?


The Easter Bunny delivered 6 baskets of eggs to Short Wood.

There were 5 eggs in each basket. How many eggs were there altogether?


Getting Active!

Kindly ask your grown up to set up a minute timer for you. Now see how many of these you can do in each minute. Give yourself a rest in between each exercise so you don't get too tired! 


How many star jumps can you do in a minute?

How many times can you sit down and then stand up again in a minute?

How many times can you reach for the sky and then touch the floor in a minute?

Now just for fun, DANCE for a whole minute, don't top until the minute is finished! laugh
