Although we officially break up for the Easter holidays on April 3rd, we have put together some Easter activities for you to complete, if you wish, over the two weeks of the holidays.
The activities are more puzzle-based and of course you should still be reading 3 times a week and practising multiplication tables and Year 5/6 spellings!
Those of you who access the Nessy spelling progamme should be using your login regularly! Well done to the top scorers among you!! Mrs Withers has been updating us on usage so don’t forget!
Many of the activities listed can be shared with your family – including an Easter jumper competition -so take a look!
Term 5 home learning will be posted on Friday 17th April – our new topic will be The Maya!
Don’t forget to send photos to Mr Webster for his blog or to us and remember you can contact us via the school email.
Keep safe and well and enjoy a bit of a break!
Have a go at finishing the last puzzles in the spring maths activity pack from last week.

Page 8: Fractions Decimals Percentages board game (watch this video if you would like a recap on finding equivalents https://corbettmathsprimary.com/2018/07/24/fractions-decimals-and-percentages-video/)
Page 9: Egg Increase drawing. Scale factor 1:3 means that if the original line was 1 square long, it now needs to be 3 squares long. If the original line was 3 squares long it now needs to be x3 bigger so would be 9 squares long etc.
Page 10: Linear Sequences. Work out how much the sequence is going up / down by and write in the numbers to complete the sequence. Extension: what is the algebraic formula for each sequence (i.e. 2n+4 each time).

Have a go at them before checking the answers.
The Getty museum in America has challenged people to recreate artwork in their own homes using 3 objects.
Why don’t you try it at home with a favourite piece of art!
Do share the results with us!
Sadly we were unable to go to Lifeskills this year but they have sent us through their 'Lifeskills Detective Sheet' to learn about some of the hazards around and about us and to help us think about how to stay safe from more than just the Corona Virus. Have a look through the sheet, discuss anything and everything with the adults in your family, then go to their website (www.lifeskills-bristol.org.uk) to take a virtual tour of their premises.
Remember though! Don't show the website to any younger siblings as they will be going later in their school career and you don't want to give any secrets away!!
Egg decorating is so much fun and keeps children entertained for hours. You can use paints, glitter, stickers and anything crafty that you can get your hands on but first you need to blow out the contents of the egg. Here’s how to do it –
Springtime Easter Nests
This Easter recipe is so simple for the children to make and requires no oven!
My favourite bit is licking the bowl afterwards…yum yum!
150g Shredded Wheat (Cornflakes or Rice Crispies are just as yummy)
3 tbsp golden syrup
1 bag of Mini Eggs
Egg-carton Spring Chicks
Cut up the base of an egg-box so each egg ‘cup’ is separate.
Paint / colour two cups the same colour and glue them together so they form an egg shape.
Draw on eyes.
Cut a diamond shape out of orange stiff paper (or colour some paper), fold it in half to make a beak shape and glue it on under the eyes.
Add a feather to the top or anything you like to make wacky hair / feathers.
Greenfingers: plant some seeds with your family and record their growth – the Maya were very partial to sweetcorn or beans but you can choose a vegetable you will enjoy harvesting!
