English– Recap on last week’s story The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunchhttps://youtu.be/j_XvnXWJEnk . There are a lot of interesting words in the story (e.g. brazen, ingenious, consolingly). Can you find any words you don’t know and find out what they mean?
English- What do these sentences mean? Can you think of any words that mean the same thing (synonym)?

Geography– draw a map of your bedroom. Imagine you are a fly on the ceiling looking down onto your room. What would the bed look like from their? What shape is it? Is your bed next to the window or the wall?
English– think about the character Mr Grinling, can you think of some describing words about him? Think about what he looks like, is he tall or short? Thin or fat? What colour is his hair? Draw a picture of him and write some describing words to go with it.
D&T– Mrs. Grinling makes delicious sandwiches for Mr. Grinling’s lunch. What is your favourite lunch, draw a picture of it. What do you need to make it? Can you make a list of ingredients? Can you help your grown up to make it one day?
Welcome to summer term, I hope that you and your families are staying safe and well. Of course we are still in lockdown and school remains closed until further notice. In order to try and fulfil our obligations as educators as best we can in these difficult circumstances, Mr McCrae has provided you with a possible timetable to follow. In the weekly blog I will try to give you ideas, activities and tasks that go some way to meeting the curriculum that we had planned. Also don’t forget that BBC Bitesize will be launching lessons and activities on a daily basis that you can have a go at.
Parents, please do not feel under pressure to complete all activities, just do what you can, when you can. Your children’s health and wellbeing is more important than anything else.

I hope you are all keeping well and safe, the next two weeks we are officially on holiday so my next blog will be available on 17th April ready with ideas for activities for the following week.
During the holiday, why not design an Easter Egg? Simply draw an egg shape on a piece of paper and encourage the children to decorate it. Alternatively twinkl has many resources for activities and is free at the moment.
As we come to the end of our first week of school closures I hope that you are all well and keeping safe. Please, please do follow government advice and stay indoors as much as possible.
Here are some more fun activities that are accessible and that you might find a useful addition to those in my previous blogs. Also remember to log onto Mathletics, I have assigned new activities.
