Five for Friday - Easter Style!
Well, this post doesn't contain things from my past week as I have been on holidays! Seeing, as it's Easter weekend, I thought I would look back on all the Easter fun we had during our last week of Term 1.

Sequencing the Easter Story

 I used these story cards and printed 4 to a page and copied enough to share between partners. We read the Easter Story, and then watched a short animated version of the Easter story ( I found a Beginner's Bible movie clip on Youtube). The students had to work together to sequence the story in order. They then retold the story to their partner and then we watched the video clip again to check!

Easter Egg Positional Word Hunt

This was so much fun! While the students were out at a specialist lesson on the last day of school, I hid some plastic eggs around the room. When they came back I explained that they had to find 1 each and they had to remember exactly where they had found it.

 We are also learning about positional words in maths, so when everyone had found an egg we listed all the places we had found them and circled the positional words as reinforcement. They then traded their plastic egg for a small chocolate one from me as they went to pack their bags :)

I mentioned a few crafts in my last Five for Friday post.

And, seeing as we were learning about the letter B that week, we also made bunnies!

I found the template off DLTK. Here's the end result...cute!

Five for Friday - 4th April 2014

I'm linking up with DoodleBugs for another Five for Friday Fun!
1. Patterning Fun!

We learned lots about patterns this week. Here they are making AB patterns with dinosaurs and teddies.

They then made AB patterns using this freebie by Jill Bell:

Finally, they followed cards to make patterns using pegboards. (The cards are from Sparklebox)

2. Word Families

We tried our hand at sorting words by the word families -og and -en.

3. Easter Crafts

Because this was the last week with the students before Easter it was full of Easter fun! We made cards, collaged crosses, crafted bunnies, and made baskets ( which were NOT big enough in the end for all the chocolate our class shared!).

For the cards we used crayon to make patterns and then did a wash over the eggs:

I am so proud of how these crosses look all together. The scripture underneath  is 1 Peter 1:3-5 in the Message version.

4. 2 years married!

This week my husband and I celebrated 2 years being married!

We "celebrated" by watching Narnia: Voyage of Dawn Treader on TV while eating pizza from Aldi. Romantic ;)


It is officially school holidays for 2 weeks!

Enough said :)

Till next time,

Stay joyful!
