Linked to Coronavirus, rainbows have taken on new meaning. Children everywhere are drawing, painting and making rainbows to put in their windows to remind people to keep smiling. It would be lovely if you could be part of this! Here are some examples.
Remember that Joe Wicks is doing a live PE lesson at 9am everyday! (I had fun doing the 'Pikachu' move yesterday!) If you miss this at 9am, it is saved on his Youtube channel so don't worry! Here is the link again:

What is your favourite wild animal? Mine is the Cheetah! I just love their beautiful patterns and I am very impressed that they are the fastest land animal in the world! They can reach a top speed of around 75mph! Wow! Maybe you've seen some new animals from the Chester Zoo Virtual tour this morning.
1) Can you draw and colour/paint a picture of your favourite wild animal and label it?
2) Can you write a sentence to explain why it is your favourite wild animal?
Don't forget capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
We have been learning all about fables. Here's a new one called 'The Fox and the Grapes'. You can listen to it and read along using the transcript, just like we did with 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'.
Have a fantastic day and weekend! Remember to look at '100 Things To Do Indoors' over the weekend. I am going to be doing a Spring Clean. Each day this week I have done the Joe Wicks workout, some Yoga and a walk so I am going to continue this on Saturday and Sunday.
I am missing you all very much. Speak to you on Monday! Sending lots of virtual hugs and high 5's!
