RE
Watch this video about the Easter Story then teach someone in your house why we celebrate Easter. Don't forget to tell them which Jewish holiday the disciples were celebrating at the last supper, what Judas did and why Pilate put Jesus on the cross.

Do some exercise, Joe Wicks is doing a PE session every morning live at 9 am this can be accessed on YouTube. You can also search GoNoodle on YouTube and take part in some of their dances. 

 

Write a letter to a friend or neighbour. Tell them what you have been up to this week. If you go for your walk today you might want to post it to them. Remember to use adjectives and adverbs. Make sure you ask them some questions too using question marks and hopefully they will send you a reply. Concentrate on making sure that your handwriting is as neat as you can make it, joining up where you can. Maybe you could also draw them an Easter picture I'm sure this will make them smile. 

 

Think about the money job you completed yesterday. Remind yourself of the coins you used. Today's job is to make a toy shop. Use as many toys as you want and use some paper to give them all a price tag between 5p and £1. Take care when writing the £ sign and don't forget to add the pence sign when needed. You now have £1 to spend in the toy shop. Each time you or a member of your family buys a toy from your toy shop work out how much change they should receive from their £1. Write these calculations down. Remember to start with £1 and subtract the amount they have spent in order to work out how much change they should get. Extension: increase your £1 to an amount of your choice.

 

ART
Start by drawing a large egg shape. Then use a ruler or something straight like the edge of a book to draw straight lines through the egg starting at lots of different places around its edge. Once you’re happy with your design, colour each section in a different colour. For a different look, go round each section pressing hard with your coloured pencil and then shade the middle by pressing more lightly. You can do this with felt tips too by going round each edge more than once.

 

 

MUSIC

Watch the YouTube video and try to sing a long. This is a ‘repeat after me’ song so pay attention to the words and actions and try to copy them in the right places.
