Books Bingo



Below I have shared a Books Bingo resource with you which I think you may enjoy as I know how many of you love reading. There are many activities for you to try based on your favourite books- they include drawing a story map or a scene, writing a letter to a character or asking the author some questions about the book. Not all the activities are appropriate to Year One but there are a lot I think you can benefit from- have a go at some book bingo activities and make sure you blog about it so I can give you lots of j2stars points!


Feeling a little bored?


Learning doesn't have to always be about Maths or English.  Why not learn a new skill whilst you're away from school?


Below I have added some Spring colouring sheets which you can click on, print and complete at home. I know Year One love colouring so this will hopefully be a lovely activity for them to complete. If you scroll to the bottom of the page I have also added a few Music and Cooking resources which you can have a go at in your spare time. You could even post some pictures on your class blog of you trying them out!


I also found lots of images below which has lots of fantastic ideas , videos and classes online to keep you busy this week. If you are feeling stuck for things to do you will love these great activities- you could watch a free class hosted by some of our favourite celebrities or watch a zoo video! They have lots of different subjects for your child and are fun and completely free!

Services for Education have a fantastic website which has lots of resources for all different instruments that you can use.
