Monday 20th April
Hope you had a lovely Easter break and had lots of delicious Easter eggs. We had an Easter egg hunt in our garden and I also created a quiz (with a chocolate bunny as a prize) for my children to complete as an extra fun activity. The weather was lovely over the two weeks so I hope you all managed to get out for some fun in your garden if you have one or you enjoyed some spring walks (remembering to observe the government guidelines).
Today’s theme for Monday is: ‘Mindset Monday’.
All things are difficult until they get easy. What is one challenge you would like to overcome this week?
Hopefully you have all managed to complete your learning theme projects over the holidays. Today is the deadline to send them in to us via email; we have received a few already. We will be sharing these on the website for you so you can enjoy each other’s efforts.
It’s always good to start your day with a physical workout, you can either create your own or visit the Joe Wicks workouts, imoves website and don’t forget that there are the GO Noodle routines – if you search these on YouTube you will find a wide choice, including our class favourites of: ‘Milkshake’ and ‘Popsico’. We have also included in our links weekly challenges set by Pav (PE coach who teaches at Millfield) - see below for details, and also to the Active Norfolk website – lots of great ideas here too!
Imoves have suggested that parents register for free on their website and you will receive a daily link to physical activities on their website straight from your email - https://imoves.com/imovement-signup
Each week we will be setting a writing or reading challenge to complete throughout the week, it can be done on any day or in smaller chunks each day – the choice is yours.
Remember you do not need to print the pdf documents we provide, just have them displayed on your screen.
Have a good day!
Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett
