Good Morning Penguins, Puffins and Parrots!
We hope you are all well and still enjoying the lovely weather. I was a bit unsure what would happen yesterday morning when I saw it had been raining but the sun soon had his hat on again!
We hope you enjoyed getting started on the Easter activities we suggested for you yesterday, we would love to see some of your wonderful creations on Tapestry.
The holidays are a wonderful time to have a bit of a rest, but remember to keep being Heart Smart and helping your grown ups at home whenever you can.
Have a lovely day!

Don’t forget you can email us on email@example.com. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password or need some help.
You can continue to use Tapestry to share your child’s work. Please only upload one post a day. You can either choose one activity or put all the activities you complete on one post.
We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!
The children in Year R are very rarely asked to work independently, particularly when writing. It is expected that they will need adult support to get started on all of the tasks we set for them here, and continue to need it throughout their activity.
However, we want to continue to build their independence, so encourage them to use resources which can help them be independent like sound cards, letter formation cards for handwriting etc.
Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities with you. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child.
There is absolutely no expectation that you get all, if any of these activities completed each day.
