Key skills to practice

Reading

  • Visit Oxford Owl and choose a free eBook that matches your book band colour. Read to an adult every day.

  • Visit phonics bloom to brush up on your phonics skills. (Y1 Phase 3 – 5, Y2 Phase 6)

  • Learn these jump rope songs  

Little White Rabbit Little white rabbit, Hop on one foot, one foot. Little white rabbit, Hop on two feet, two feet. Little white rabbit, Hop on three feet, three feet. Little white rabbit, Hop on no feet, no feet.”

(On “three feet”, the jumper puts one hand to the ground. On “no feet” run out.)

Chickety, chickety, chop. How many times before I stop? One, two three, four, five…..? 

 

Writing

  • Have you read Super-Tato? Can you dress up a vegetable, write and illustrate your own super-veg story?
  • Easter is a time to celebrate new life! Think about signs of new life we might see during Spring. Can you make a poster that celebrates new life? 

 

Maths

  • Make a junk-model clock.

Y1 – Practise telling the time to O’Clock

Y2- Practise telling the time to O’Clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. To help you why not colour the ‘past’ side of the clock in blue and the ‘to’ side of the clock in red, just like our clock in the classroom.

Challenge- Add on the minutes. Can you find 5, 10, 20 and ’25’ past and ‘to’.

  • Create an egg and spoon obstacle race. Take it in turns to time yourself and other competitors. How many times can you complete the course in 1 minute, 3 minutes or 5 minutes?

Challenge – If you know how many times you can compete the course in 3 minutes, can you use this result to estimate how many times you could complete it in 3o minutes. What’s the connection between 3 and 30?

Challenge – If you have an estimation for 30 minutes, what would your estimation for 1 hour (60 minutes) be?

 

This week’s project

  • Create your own Easter egg hunt around the house by writing simple clues to lead your family on a trail. Could you make the clues more cryptic by only describing the places they need to find rather than naming them? 
  • Research some instructions for Easter origami, can you make: a rabbit, a chick, a carrot, a flower, a basket?  

 

Be active

  • Join in with Joe Wicks’ PE lessons.

Get creative

  • Have a go at some Easter baking. Can you read and follow the instructions? Maybe you could try and remember the instructions and write them in your very own recipe book?
