Today, we made an assault course in PE, created Easter wreaths and had fun in basecamp!
Just wanted to say a huge well done for making it to the end of term and all of the hard work you have been doing at home. The Den staff are all so proud of you!
We will not be setting formal work for the next two weeks but feel free to choose from any of the family fun activities below:
- Have an egg hunt around your house or garden.
- Base some Easter cookies or cakes- see Evie’s photographs for inspiration!
- Hold an egg race against your family- who is the winner?
- Watch an Easter film (e.g Hop).
- Build a Den inside or outside.
- Have some egg-speriments (egg experiments) how high can you drop an egg without it smashing? What can you find around your house to protect it from damage?
- Eat chocolate!
As ever, don’t forget to save your photographs to the school blog- we love to see what you are getting up to.

The school & nursery are currently open between 8:40am and 3:10pm for children of key workers only (this includes the Easter holidays). The office is staffed between 8:30am and 12pm each day during Easter. If you want to enquire about a place, please phone or email email@example.com and someone will get back to you.
This week’s Picture News is about endangered animals.
First, have a look at the Picture News at Home pdf, then take a look at the Assembly Resource.
Once you have done that, open either the KS1 or KS2 work with some further activities for you to complete.
We would love to see the work you have done posted to the blog.
I just wanted to send you a quick reminder about ways to stay safe online. With life being a bit different at the moment I am sure that you are missing your friends and using ICT a lot more to help with your learning. Please remember to follow these rules to help you to stay safe:
Don’t forget that if you see or hear anything that upsets you when you are online (or on your mobile phone) then you can always email Buddy Bear or your class teacher. Alternatively you could tell a trusted adult at home or phone NSPCC childine on 0800 1111.
Stay safe and please try to take regular screen breaks!

Our value of the month for April is Freedom
What is Freedom?
- Rights and responsibilities
- Freedom of speech
Suggestions for parents to work with children at home:
- Together, talk about people in history who were being ruled by someone else and wanted freedom, e.g. Moses and the Israelites, slaves in the US before the Civil War; Hanukkah; Nelson Mandela.
- Discuss with your child about historical slavery and modern day human trafficking.
- Discuss with your child about the Syria Refugee Crisis.
- Different Rules of Law around the world. Discuss with your child democracy in Britain and how this may be different from countries around the world.
- Freedom of self- expression. Discuss with your child the importance of their identity and being able to express themselves. Explain that people living in Britain are able to express themselves how they choose; as long as it doesn’t break the law (Individual Liberty).
- Discuss inner freedom– having positive thoughts. What does inner freedom feel like? When do you feel most free? What kinds of thoughts make you feel free? Constrained?
