EASTER HOLIDAYS!

Here are some suggestions for some activities that you might like to try at home during the Easter holidays.  You don't have to do these... but it's worth having a look through as you might want to come back to do at least one of these at some point over the Easter break!

  • It's time for you to take control of the cooker and make that spaghetti bolognese we've been talking about over the last two weeks!  It can be meat-based or vegetarian.  Why not try making both to see which you prefer?  Please take photos and add them to the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.  Tell us how it went too!
  • If you haven't got rainbows in your windows yet to brighten up the whole community, then now's a great time to make some!  Take photos and put them in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.
  • Complete the Art poster task that is further down this page.  Remember, we're making posters to give to the elderly, vulnerable and self-isolating members of our community.  Once finished, please take a large-sized photo and email it to me at Y6@st-thomasmore.leicester.sch.uk.  Thank you!
  • Mrs. Shoker and Mrs. G have compiled a huge list of Easter craft ideas!  Please take a look here and post photos of what you make in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash. 
  • Times tables - if you still need more practice so that you can recall times tables facts instantly, then please practise!  Take a short video of you practising in an unusual location/setting and post it in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash!
  • Family time - learn new card games (instructions for many can be found online) or play a board game that you haven't played for a while.  If you've learned something new, recommend it to us in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.  Include photos too!
  • It's Easter: a time of great hope for us all.  Write a prayer linking the Easter theme with hope for the future when life returns to normal after lockdown.  Please share it in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.
  • Music - write new words to the tune of a famous song about what you'll be rushing to do once the lockdown is lifted!  Post the words, and - even better - a video of your new words being performed in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.
  • Daily exercise - P.E. with Joe Wicks continues every weekday at 9am on his Body Coach YouTube channel.  Join in and start the day in a fit and healthy way!
  • Clap the carers - I think the 8pm community clapping is now a regular weekly event.  Please join your neighbours to show our support for the brave and amazing key workers who are keeping us all safe and looking after us so well.

Whatever you're doing, if you have something fun to share with the rest of the class or have found a new way to pass the time at home, please tell us all about it in the 'What's New?' shared blog in Purple Mash.  Include photos if you have them. Have fun and stay safe!

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Action for Happiness has created a 'Coping Calendar' (see below) which focuses on small actions we can all do each day to look after ourselves and others while self-isolating or simply staying at home.  Please take some time to look at it and discuss the actions with your families and friends.  Check in with everyone to make sure they're OK.
