Things to do if you want some more things to do! 


1. Read your reading book, or any book! If you don't have any to read at home, click on the link to Oxford Owl below and you will find lots to read online.

2. Play Hit the Button - you can practise lots of things there. 

3. Every day I will upload a reading comprehension activity. We will not go through this together every day, but try to have a go at all of them. Read as much as you can by yourself. 

4. Help your mum or dad out. Do a bit of tidying up, make them a snack, or do something to help someone else out. 

5. Have a run around or do something energetic. We will be sitting for a long time so it's important to move around. Don't forget if your parents let you, you could type 'Go Noodle' in the search on You Tube and show someone some of the crazy dances! 

6. Watch Paddington! 

7. Have a rest - having time to switch your brain off for a bit is important too.

Read, Read, Read! Chestnut love to READ!!


Keep a record of all the books you read over Christmas! Mrs Lawrence will hand out sticky dots to those that read the most books. Everyone will get a reward for taking part and don't worry Mrs Lawrence hasn't forgotten about those sticky dots she owes children still too.
