Greenfinch Class - Thursday 2nd April
Good Morning Greenfinches!
How did you get on with building an Easter Garden and an obstacle course yesterday? Don’t forget that you can do the activities on other days too. I hope you enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and have been choosing lovely things to do.
Winston would like you to use your Phase 2 and 3 sound cards to make words!
Can you choose the sound cards that would go together to make a word?
Try these ones and then see if you can create your own words.

I hope you are enjoying reading your school book to an adult up three times a week at home? Are you sounding and blending new words and recognising tricky words? Can you explain what you have read to an adult and re-tell the story?
You might like to listen to the Easter story being read here:

Today we are going to make an Easter card and decorate the front with an egg, one of the symbols of Easter. Maybe you could have a lovely walk to the post box in the sunshine to post your card and cheer somebody up like a grandparent that you haven’t been able to see.
To make your card:
1. Fold one of the pieces of A4 paper/ card in half, you could use one of the pieces that was sent home from school.
2. Draw an egg on the front of your card. You might need an adult to help you with this bit. Or you can print the Easter Egg template attached.
3. Decorate your egg by adding buttons, painting finger prints to make dots, painting stripes, or cutting pieces of ribbon to decorate your egg.
4. Inside the card, use your phonics to write the name of the person you are giving the card to, ‘Happy Easter’ and your name.
How many of these can you do today? Can you count how many of each you do? Maybe you could add these into your obstacle course that you made yesterday?
Jumping, bouncing, batting, trampolining, catching, throwing, running, skipping, kicking, hopping. Can you record how many you do of each?
Today you are going to be practicing your number bonds to 5.
Collect some different toys. You are going to use your toys to make two groups that add up to a total of 5. For example, use two teddy bears and three dinosaurs to make 5; or 4 dolls and 1 car to make 5. Draw pictures of your two groups of objects that make 5 in your book. Can you think of two groups of objects that would make 10?
