Magnificent Monday- Screen Break Day 1!

Good morning everyone, here is the first activity grid for our screen break week. You can choose one or more of the activities below for each hour to complete and you can choose which order to complete them in.

Remember your Teacher will still be doing their daily check-in and story times and you don’t need to post what you’re doing (unless you want to in which case we’ll love to see them 🙂

We’ve tried to make it that you don’t need many resources but if you do need things such as coloured paper, gluesticks etc. please contact the school office and we can provide them for you.

Last of all- enjoy the activities! You can do them on your own, with your brothers and sisters or anyone else in the house, it’s up to you! MONDAY Screen Free activities MONDAY Screen Free activities
