Treasure Hunts!!! – A new one every week! Spring Hunt

It’s the 1st of April! We hope you are enjoying a daily walk in the sunshine!

We have been learning that lots of new life begins in Spring; lambs are born, we watched chicks hatch in school, and flowers begin to grow. See if you can find any of these other signs of Spring.

Email in your photos or drawings to Mrs Smith, we would love to see what you have been finding!

30 Day Lego Challenge!

An activity to try everyday – if you don’t have Lego, you could use a different construction toy, or make the ideas out of paper, or draw them.

Which colour block do you need next?

Can you recreate your pattern so you have 10 blocks altogether?

Can you copy my pattern?
