Good morning Kangaroos!

We are going to take a short break over Easter and I shall be posting again on the 20th of April.
In the meantime, there is a new hospital being built called NHS Nightingale. The hospital would like to decorate its wards with some bright and beautiful drawings by children. The drawings need to be on A4 paper. I think Kangaroos are all fabulous artists and could really help cheer up people that are poorly. If you are able to help out the hospital, send your drawings to:

The other day I posted a link to a dance from Mary Poppins. The song ‘I’m a believer’ from Shrek is now on there, which is the song we were going to do for the Britannia Pier Show! You can find it here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Btxws8qvYAA

Over Easter, you could create your own Easter egg hunt by drawing some eggs, decorating them and hiding them around your home for others to find. Don’t forget to read lots and use EdShed to practise your spellings and maths, as many of you are already doing. Whatever you do, have fun, be good and don’t eat too much chocolate.

 

Happy Easter to you and your families!

Hi Kangaroos

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! This weekend I have been learning the dance moves to supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from the film Mary Poppins. You can find the dance here: youtube.com/watchre if you would like to learn it too.

Joke of the day: Which bird is always out of breath? A puffin!

Spellings: This week your spellings are words that end in -ge.

The spelling rule: At the end of a word, the letter j is never used to spell the sound ‘j’. Instead, we use -dge or -ge. If the ‘j’ sound comes after a long vowel spell it with -ge.
