EASTER ACTIVITIES:

If you are need of some inspiration to keep you busy over the Easter break why not try some of the fun activities below. We will be back to our normal upload schedule on Sunday 19th April at 5pm. Have a lovely Easter everyone!

ENGLISH TASKS:

WEEK 1:

Challenge 1

Get creative! Can you create your own alien character? What adjectives could you use to describe it’s appearance? Label your alien. We'd love to see what you create!

 

Challenge 2

Using all of the information that you created yesterday about your alien, write a character description to tell us a little more about it. Remember to describe it’s appearance, it’s personality and what it likes to do.

 

Challenge 3

Using the alien you have created, write an acrostic poem. Remember the first letter in each line spells out a word. The word you spell could be the word ‘alien’ or it could be the name that you have given your own alien character. Here is an example of what your acrostic poem could look like.

Week 2:

 

Your tasks this week also link to Come and See. Use the bible given to you as part of the Year of the Word to help you with your tasks this week. You might find the login details for Discovery Espresso (sent via Dojo) useful this week; this will help you watch ‘The Easter Story’ video.
