Hygge Pyjama Friday 


As it is the last day of home learning, and to reward you for all of your hard work since January, we would love for you to enjoy your final day Hygge-style! As it is World Book Day this week, most of our ideas today focus on reading activities, but you can adapt these suggestions to suit you. We hope that these activities help you to feel cosy, comfortable, happy and connected. We can't wait to see you on Monday! 

Miss Urquhart and Miss Thomas


Before you get started with your Hygge Reading activities, there is one task Miss Thomas and I would like you to complete...


Find your school bag

Find your reading record

Find your spelling book

Find any bookmarks you have made

Find your water bottle

Pack these things (and anything else you might need) into your school bag

Do you know where all of your uniform is?

What about your shoes?

Think about which snacks might you want to bring at playtime?

Talk to someone about what you might have for lunch at school


We hope that by completing these activities, you will feel more prepared and relaxed about heading back to school on Monday smiley




Here are some ideas you might enjoy taking part in today:


  • Make a reading den and enter with your newest book
  • Draw, paint or make a character or scene from your favourite book
  • Read a book under a blanket with a torch enlightened
  • Look at your books at home- could you organise them by author or colour or by which you like the most?
  • Create your own book quiz
  • Make up a story when you are out for a walk- maybe you could be the main character
  • Write a book review of your favourite or least favourite book (you could do this on MyOn)
  • Read to someone else
  • Ask someone else to read to you
  • Read the instructions out loud when following a recipe
  • Watch a film based on one of your favourite books (e.g. The BFG/Matilda/Fantastic Mr Fox/Harry Potter)
  • Make a list of books you would really like to read
  • Call someone in your family or a friend and tell them about the outfits you loved on World Book Day or the teachers who were on the masked singer
