Good afternoon 

I hope you have had a good day and enjoyed making the Easter baskets.  Please see below details for Thursday's learning.  I would love to read some of the letters that the children write, please feel free to email them to me. 

On Friday I will be asking the children to write a set of instructions.  The can be for anything the children choose. I thought I would give you some warning in case your child wants to choose what they want to write about and practise tomorrow. For example, how to make a sandwich - then the children could make their own lunch tomorrow! Other examples could be: how to make a mud pie, how to make an Easter card, how to play their favourite game, how to sew etc. 

Have a good day tomorrow.

I have attached a game you can play about different emotions and feelings. Play this with your child.  Talk about what the different feelings mean and come up with some scenarios for when someone might feel this way. You could also come up with some strategies for dealing with different emotions – E.G: When I feel sad I talk to a friend.

If you are unable to print this game then you could create your own using some of the emotions on the attachment.
