Monday, 30th March


What a delightful, dazzling day it is today.


I’m having fun thinking of some alliteration:


Energetic Elnathan

Terrific Toni

Playful Poppy

Joyful Jayden

Happy Harley

Bright Bella Mae

Amazing Albie

Excited Enzo

Lovely Lucas

Kind Kitty

Nice Natan

Polite Patrick

Smart Sofia

Marvelous Miriam

Outstanding Olivier

Vibrant Weronika

Fantastic Florence

Extraordinary Emilia


Can you think of some alliteration for people in your family or objects around you? E.g. bouncy bed, massive mat, red rose.



This week I want you to start the activities for the week beginning 30th March and you can start to follow the time- table I have added.


I hope you have a marvelous Monday,


Miss Keane
