Lesson 5 Trainers

As we can’t celebrate birthdays the way we used we have had to be a little creative. So instead of buying your cards try making them. We have missed 3 birthdays including Molly’s 2nd birthday. We put balloons out on our gate so our neighbours tooted their car horns while driving past, we made a card, we baked a cake and played with bubbles! 
I would love to see some of your cards when we get back to school. I want to show you how to make a memory book so you can keep all your Lockdown drawings and school work together.
Take care everybody xxx

Birthday cards and memories

Birthday cards and memories 1 You can paint a page with texture
Birthday cards and memories 2 Put your hand on and draw around
Birthday cards and memories 3 Cut your hands out date and name
Birthday cards and memories 4 What about adding pattern to your hand
Birthday cards and memories 5 You could get the whole family involved

Hi everybody I hope you have enjoyed trying to make your elephants. Like us you might have birthdays to celebrate and as we can’t get everything we are used to what about making your cards? 
We have made a few and another one to do today and I can show you how next lesson. 
 

We are going to try and mail some hugs too as we can’t see all the people we are used to giving hugs to.

 

I miss you when you’re far away,

I’d love to see you every day, 

But since I can’t come over to play, 

I’m mailing you a hug today.

 

Miss you all and enjoy the sunny weather xxx
