ENGLISH – Write a weekly forest school diary – just like we would at school. You could do this from your window or during your daily exercise outdoors. If you can’t get out then describe one of the rooms in your house.

Describe what you could see, hear, feel, touch and smell and use sentences to write about this.

Use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Make sure your reading can be read back by others! Tick off these key features of good writing!

Leftover easter chocolate? Me neither! But if you have you could make these using scales . . .
