Happy Easter!

This week I will be making an Easter card for someone special. I am choosing to send mine to my lovely Mum who is working hard keeping lots of Mums and babies safe. I will send her a picture of the card on Easter Sunday. Is there anyone you would like to send a card to? It could be a keyworker, a neighbour or even someone in your family that you would like to make smile. You could send them a picture just like me and make their day!

School Closure

Each Monday I will be updating my class page with some Literacy and Numeracy activities you may like to try out at home.


I understand not every family has access to a computer/laptop/iPad/or the internet so please feel free to share this information with other parents, if you think it would be helpful.


In addition, I will be linking some worksheets, these do not need to be printed, children could write their answers onto a page, their homework book or alternatively parents could write them out for children if they feel this would be beneficial.

In the event of school closure:


Spellings and Mental Maths targets are in homework books. These can be revised. I have also attached some website links which may be helpful.



Children should focus on the 5 stages of story writing

  • An interesting introduction to hook the reader
  • A paragraph to build the tension
  • A paragraph describing an exciting event or major problem
  • A paragraph to find a resolution
  • A concluding paragraph to tie up loose ends.
    Revision of basic punctuation:
  • Speech marks (big focus)
  • Verbs, adjectives.
  • Identify different types of nouns
  • Commas for lists



  • Revision of written addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Revision of times tables to 12
  • Give children some data and challenge them to display it using bar charts and pie charts.
