Gardening at home over Easter
Gardening At Home Over Easter

I recently set my seeds for spring and wondered if other families would like to try a bit of gardening while they have time on their hands. It is great for Easter and signs of new life. I love watching the new shoots appear.

We do some great work learning about colour in our ‘Paint a Rainbow’ theme.

In the Autumn we go on a scavenger hunt to look for signs of Autumn. Look at what we are able to find.

St Luke’s Church organise  Advent activities in school to support our learning in R.E. Classes make Christingles and star biscuits for our ‘Let it Shine’ theme.

Here is a useful website to help your child practise real and nonsense words for the Year 1 Phonic Screening Check. Dragons Den, Picnic on Pluto and Buried Treasure are all suitable games to play. Phase 5 sounds would be the most beneficial for your child to work on, but phases 3 and 4 would be useful too.
