Home Learning

I will keep Monday's Padlet about your favourite games available below the tasks that you can continue to add to and hopefully get ideas for new games you can play at home. If you haven't managed to add your game yet, now is your chance. Here are today's tasks. I'll continue to add three tasks a day. I have now sent all of you an e-mail to fins out how you are all doing. Please check your emails through Microsoft Office on Hwb I'd love to hear back from you all.

Today's Daily Tasks (01/04/2020)

There are three Easter tasks for you today, a maths task, a literacy task and a Welsh task.

Feel free to e-mail me your completed work so I can have a look and give you feedback.

You can take a picture or type up your work on Word and share it with me.



See if you can find all of the words on this Easter themed word search.


Aim: to record all possible outcomes.

The Easter Bunny’s Baskets

The Easter bunny has lots of red, blue and green Easter eggs. He can only fit 3 eggs in each of his baskets. How many different egg baskets can he make? He can use more than one egg of the same colour.

Now for some fraction questions...

You are set the challenge to collect the Easter eggs in the puzzle below. You must write a set of instructions for the Easter bunny to make it's way around the area collecting the Easter eggs and avoiding the lava lumps. You must write a set of instructions and then test them out. You may need to do this several times before completing it successfully.

Instructions could be things like - Move forward 3 spaces, turn clockwise 90 degrees for example. See if you can do this in the fewest moves possible. You may want to make your own version of this game at home using objects around the house.

You can choose at which point on the board to start.
