This is a day when you can play a joke on someone. Can you think of a joke to play on someone or a joke to tell them and make them laugh?

Here is my best joke:

Earl’s Hill (Swans) Home Learning 1st April

Hello, I hope that you are all well. Our final day of home learning has an Easter theme!

You could complete this colour by numbers egg sheet. If you are not able to print, why not draw your own!

How about designing your own Easter egg, you must make sure that it is symmetrical (exactly the same on both sides as though you are looking in a mirror!)

 

Maths

Why not practise what you have been learning in Maths by making numbers using things you can find in your garden or your home.

You could log onto Numbots:

Finally, I wish you all a very Happy Easter, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all back in school after the holiday.

Earls Hill Cygnets Home Learning Wednesday 31st March.

 

Good morning Earls Hill Cygnets!

I hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday.

To start the day I would like you to take part in a Phonics session with Mrs Thompstone. You can find these sessions on our website under the Learning/Reading tab but here is a quick link:

Maths

To start your maths today I would like you to join in with this counting song:

 

For today’s activity you will need:

  • a piece of paper
  • an orange coloured pen or pencil
  • Some green paint or a green pen or pencil
  • a cotton bud, lolly stick or paintbrush

Now I would like you to draw a carrot on the paper. Ask your grown up to write a number on the carrot. Do you know what the number is? Now, using the green paint, I would like you to paint that number of tops sticking up from the carrot. Grown ups: Choose any number which is appropriate for your child. You could try choosing two numbers for them to add together.

Teaching Archives - Laura Kelly's Inklings

I would like you to draw at least 4 more carrots and do this for each one. 

 

Literacy

Today Clee Class are going to be making Easter cards in school. It would be lovely if you can make one at home too. The cards we are making are like the ones in the picture:

Pin on Activities

You can make one like this or you can design one yourself using the materials you have at home.

When you’ve designed and made your card remember to write inside who you are sending it to and that it is from you.

 

I would like you to read your reading book or a Bug Club book with your grown up.

 

Have a lovely day everyone!

Earls Hill Cygnets Home Learning Tuesday 30th March.

 

Good morning Earls Hill Cygnets!

To start the day I would like you to take part in a Phonics session with Mrs Thompstone. You can find these sessions on our website under the Learning/Reading tab but here is a quick link:

Expressive Art and Design – Music

As the weather is going to be sunny today I would like you to go outside and find some natural materials or items in and around your house to use for making music.

For example you could find some sticks to tap together or scrape across each other

Make Your Own Bilma – Australian Clapsticks! | Making musical instruments,  Nature play, Natural materials

Or some saucepans or tins to bang

Classic Beating on Pots & Pans

Or make a shaker using a plastic bottle or tub with stones, rice or pasta inside

Homemade Activity for Toddler-Shaker Toys | Diy preschool toys, Toddler  activities, Diy toddler toys

7 Kids' crafts ideas | crafts for kids, crafts, activities for kids

When you have made your musical instruments try them out one by one. Do they sound the same? Or different? Choose some songs to sing while you play your instruments.

 

 

Maths

To start your maths today I would like you to join in with this counting song:

 

For today’s activity you will need:

  • A toy chicken or bird
  • Something that you can use as worms (cooked spaghetti, wool, string etc)
  • A dice (or two if you would like a challenge)

Now I would like you to roll the dice and feed the hen that number of worms. If you find that really easy then I would like you to roll the dice and your grown up can ask you what is 1 more or 1 less than that number; now you need to feed the hen that number of worms. If that is still too easy for you I would like you to roll 2 dice and add the numbers together. Can you feed the hen that number of worms?

To finish off today’s learning here is the Easter story for you to watch:

 

When you have watched the story it would be lovely if you can make or draw and Easter garden.
