Easter Home-Learning

Here are some activities you might like to try at home during the Easter holiday.

Easter Planning for Reception children

Home Learning Storytime

We hope you have had an enjoyable Easter at home with your families.

In case you are missing storytime, Miss Town (and her little helper) have recorded, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, for you to listen to.

If you enjoy watching and listening, there are more videos on the Little Lennies web page.

Story Time

During our home-learning time, we thought the children might enjoy listening to some stories whilst we are apart.

The stories are:

Rabbit's Wish

The Three Little Pigs

Goldilocks and the Three Bears


Two of our St Leonard's children from years 3 and 5 have also recorded some stories you might enjoy.

The Frog Prince

Little Red Riding Hood
