NEW! Daily Routines, Weather, Subtraction Within 20 and More...

10th May 2018
We've added over 60 of our popular "Colouring Quotes" over the last year or so, 2 a week, and I think it is time for a pause - so that mean's that this week's two lovely pages will be the last for a while. But don't worry, we've got a new colouring activity starting next week (also suitable for older children and adults) that I think you are going to love. Keep an eye out!
Elsewhere, we've started another brand new topic (Daily Routines), added some fab new Weather activities, created crosswords and Subtraction with 20 resources and learned about one of our favourite authors. It's all below....

Because I love this particular quote and colouring page so much, I asked Tatyana do make us a pre-coloured version to use as a greetings card and poster.

Have You Seen?
Have you seen this assortment of word puzzles? We've got so many puzzles on the website now, mostly sorted into collections. But sometimes we do a one-off puzzle for a theme, or test a new puzzle a few times - and if they are word based they end up here in our More Word Puzzles section!

A Little Something ...
One of my favourite "read aloud" poems!
Lines and Squares
by A.A. Milne
Whenever I walk in a London street,
I'm ever so careful to watch my feet;
And I keep in the squares,
And the masses of bears,
Who wait at the corners all ready to eat
The sillies who tread on the lines of the street
Go back to their lairs,
And I say to them, "Bears,
Just look how I'm walking in all the squares!"
And the little bears growl to each other, "He's mine,
As soon as he's silly and steps on a line."
And some of the bigger bears try to pretend
That they came round the corner to look for a friend;
And they try to pretend that nobody cares
Whether you walk on the lines or squares.
But only the sillies believe their talk;
It's ever so 'portant how you walk.
And it's ever so jolly to call out, "Bears,
Just watch me walking in all the squares!"
