The Easter holidays have finally arrived!
I hope everyone is doing well and managing to find a way to adjust to this new way of living.
I want to say a BIG thank you to all parents and children for joining in so enthusiastically with the first week (and a bit!) of home learning. I have loved seeing what you’ve been up to. I’ve had pictures of garden assault courses, rare lizards that have been discovered while bug hunting and LOADS of amazing pieces of work. Thank you for keeping me updated J
It’s also been great to hear that so many of you have been joining in with Joe Wicks’ daily P.E. lessons on YouTube. I have been joining in every morning and I’m loving it (although it is quite exhausting!) Please keep your ‘workout selfies’ coming too!
Keep sending things my way- there is now an area on our class page for photos of any great home learning and I will be updating this regularly.
Now the Easter holidays are here it is important that you all have a chance to switch off from school work. It’s a great opportunity for family time and for doing activities that we normally don’t have time for. I have recently taken up a new hobby- watercolour painting! I find it very relaxing and it helps me switch off for a little while!
Here are some examples of some new hobbies that you could try and take up over the next few weeks:
- Knitting, sewing or crochet
- Cooking and baking (make some Easter themed dishes, like Easter crispy cakes!)
- Learn/make up a new dance routine or a new song
- Painting (paint by numbers are a great way to get started!)
- Go on a bug hunt in your garden and see what you find
- Make some Easter crafts (an Easter bonnet etc)
- Make an Easter card and send it to a relative
- Make your own cards!
- Puzzles and jigsaws (try and choose a challenging one that you can work on a little bit each day- it’s very rewarding!)
Whatever you end up doing, make sure you spend time relaxing, switching off and spending time with your family.
Have a very happy Easter.
Take care and keep safe!
