Read a book! A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read! Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below). If you’re not sure what a word says, sound it out or use the pictures to help you.


If you would like to share some read aloud stories, you can find some in our Read Aloud Stories folder. 


Reading Prompts


BEFORE READING - What can you see on the front cover? Who is the author? Who is the illustrator? Can you find the title? What does it say? What do you think is going to happen in this story?


DURING READING - What do you think will happen next? Do you know what that word/sentence says? What does that word mean? What is happening in the picture?


AFTER READING - Did you guess the ending correctly? Was that what you thought would happen? Who was your favourite character? Why? Can you tell me the story in your own words? What was your favourite part? Were there any parts you didn’t like? Why?



Literacy - Weekly focus: Easter


What do you know about Easter? Write or draw or tell someone about some things you know about Easter? Do you celebrate Easter?


Watch these Espresso videos on Easter.


Can you create your own Easter egg? What kind of design would you put on it? Would you make it into anything? Below are some ideas. You could draw it or even decorate a real egg!


When you're done, post it on the class blog to show everyone!

Extra challenge: Why don’t you try and write an Easter Acrostic Poem using the letters EASTER? Think of one word for each letter. Below is an example:


E is for eggs

A is for

S is for spring time

T is for

E is for

R is for rabbits



Maths - Weekly focus: Number bonds to 10 and Positional Language


Warm up - sing the counting in 5s song and the counting in 10s song


Can you complete these number sentences? Can you show it on a tens frame?

Can you find any other number bonds to 10 and write them down?


Extra challenge: How else could you show these number sentences? Can you use things around your house? Pencils, fingers, teddies?


Get a teddy and a chair. Can you put the teddy under the chair? Can you put it next to the chair? Can you put it on top of the chair? Can you put it in front and behind the chair?

Extra challenge: Can you draw the chair and the teddy and write where it is?
