Hi there, 

I hope you are well and keeping busy. When the weather is nice, its great to get some fresh air. If you have a garden, you can look for the signs of spring all around us now. You could even hide some eggs, make a map and have an egg hunt for other people in your family! 

 

 

Below is a really interesting website where you can look up information on lots of topics- octopuses, the Grand Canyon in America, and even sailing. You can explore places around the world and look up science projects too!

Please don’t worry if you cannot get through the activities that I’ve assigned below. Choose a book or topic that interests you to get you going and just do your best. A little bit every day makes all the difference and will make school a bit easier when we return. 

I can’t wait to get back to school, it feels like a very long time since we’ve all been there.

 

Warm regards, 

L McGovern

Here are some ideas for a project based on Disney plus Star Wars or  Marvel Infinity.

1. Who is your favourite character? List five reasons for this, using as many adjectives as you can to describe your character. 

Whilst typing, remember your capital letters, commas and full stops. 

Write (type) a biography about your character. What made them the hero/villian that they are today. (Five sentences please).
