Hello, everybody! I hope you enjoyed last week’s grid.
This week’s Oliver Jeffers story is ‘Lost and Found’. We have linked three different versions of the story for you to choose from, but also feel free to read from the physical book if you own in. This week’s grid has some new learning – we are introducing the topic of money and completing some floating and sinking experiments – so please read the note at the bottom of the grid for more information. Have a great week!
Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had an enjoyable time over the last two weeks.
Over the next four weeks, we will be completing book studies on Oliver Jeffers’ stories. Each week will introduce a new story by Oliver Jeffers, the grid will link you to videos of the story being told, and the other activities will be based around the topics within the story.
This week we are reading ‘How to Catch a Star’. I hope you enjoy listening to the story and trying out some of the related activities on the grid below. Please don’t forget to use the email address if you’d like to send some photos – I really love receiving them! Have a good week!

We’re now heading into the Easter Holidays – although these holidays look very different than expected. I know you’ll have lots of fun things you’d like to do over the next two weeks, but if you find yourself with some time on your hands, we’ve made a document filled with ideas to keep you busy.
Please feel free to continue to send pictures and videos of the wonderful activities you’ve been doing – I love to look at them!
I hope you have a fun and relaxed time over the holidays. Check back here after the two week break for a new grid and a new diary from Ted! Stay safe and well, everyone!
Hello everyone! I hope you are all having an enjoyable time at home and staying safe!

Hello from Miss Gainford and Doofles.
This week we are looking at Easter symbols which are things that are linked to Easter such as Easter bonnets, bunnies and eggs and chicks, candles and crosses. See if you can find and count each one then write the correct numbers in boxes and colour in the pictures neatly, remember no gaps or overlaps.
On the back of this sheet, you could design your own Easter bonnet which could have one or more of the Easter symbols on it and if you have the materials, you could make it to wear. The easiest way to make a hat is to staple, glue or stick a strip of paper to fit your head and then add your pictures to it. Everyone could join in and you could have an Easter parade in your Easter bonnet.
Following your bear topic theme, I would like you to organize a teddy bear picnic [don’t worry if you don’t have a teddy any toy or family member could be invited].
Make a list of what you would like to eat at your party and check to see if you have everything that you need.
You could design an invitation with pictures of what you are going to eat and drink and a teddy bear border.
With a grown up prepare the food, taking care with any sharp objects such as graters and knives and don’t forget to wash your hands well and use a clean surface and tidy up afterwards.
When it is all ready choose your spot. If you are lucky enough to have a garden and the weather is fine it could be outside or if not, choose which room.
Lay a cloth or picnic blanket down on the ground and arrange your food and drink in the middle and set the places with a cup and plate for everyone, including teddy, and knife, fork and spoon if you need it.
Think of some games you could play at your picnic and take a photograph of your teddy hiding.
Listen to the Teddy bear picnic song and enjoy.
Here is an extra Easter sheet for you to have fun with.
Happy Easter to you all.
This week we are continuing our Bears topic. Click the link below to download a list of activities you can do with your child.
Hello from Miss Gainford and Doofles. We are continuing with our Easter topic and we would like you to watch or listen to the Easter story and to tell someone what you can remember about it and then draw a picture of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey.

In drama, we were going to have an Easter egg hunt. You could draw or paint Easter eggs and then cut them out and hide them for someone else to find and tell them that they are getting closer by saying hot or hotter or cold and colder for further away and then they can hide it for you.
