Hello everyone. We think you have worked so hard with your remote learning this half term so as a little treat and a big thank you here are some lovely activities for you to choose from today.
We would like you to start with Mrs Powell’s worship then complete your Science lesson.
Then the choice is yours! Perhaps these will give you some nice ideas to do over the half term holiday too.

Build a den either inside (or even outdoors if we are lucky enough to have a warm, dry day) You could use blankets, sheets, cushions, old boxes, chairs. Could you put your teddy bear in there and a book?
While you are out on your daily walk, why not look out for the following things and tick them off when you see them. There is a large copy of the sheet attached to the blog.
•Make up your own story to act out or you could use one of your favourite stories instead
•Make your own puppet characters – these could be sock, stick or finger puppets
•You could even make your own puppet theatre out of a cereal box
•Perform your story using your puppets for your family
You don’t need any fancy equipment. Just get creative with the things you have already got at home or in your garden. E.g.
- Balance a potato on a spoon
- Balance a cushion on your head
- Jump over a skipping rope/piece of string, pair of tights
- Use rolled up socks as cones and run in and out of them
- Keepie uppies with rolled up socks
