Happy Easter holidays!

It may not feel like it, but we have actually got to the holidays! We thought we'd post a few ideas to keep you busy, even when you're stuck inside.

  • You might like to do some cooking for your families and learn to make some new dishes. This website has some really interesting recipes you might like to try. If you make any of them, remember to take a picture and put a review on the class blogs.
  • If you can’t actually get out to visit a museum this holiday then take a look at :  

    The project is a partnership between the British Museum and Google Cultural Institute. For the first time ever, discover objects from the British Museum's collection from prehistory to the present. Its got some very interesting items. We were surprised how old some of them were!

  • We think this is a lovely site and the activities are outdoor based. Mr Petts is particularly excited about making a hedgehog hotel. He's going to give one to Mrs PH for her birthday!  


    GoNoodle engages 14 million kids every month with movement and mindfulness videos created by child development experts. There are some fun activities on this site, some art and craft activities as well as some more active videos with dancing and yoga opportunities.


    Adventure Stories Competition

    Returning for a fourth year running, Go Ape are encouraging all young adventurers to get creative both in and out of the classroom.

    From World Book Day (5th March 2020) until 19th April 2020, Go Ape are asking schools and parents to get their students/children involved in the hope of winning some fab prizes for them and their class.

    Children are asked to write a story about an adventure they’ve been on OR anywhere their imagination has taken them; between 100-500 words, which can be typed or handwritten. Alternatively, children can draw a picture of their adventure on A4 paper - the more creative the better!

  • You might like to make a balloon rocket to celebrate our earth and space topic. Have a look at these instructions. You might like to attach an Easter prayer as it goes up.

  • Since it is Easter, you might like to read or find a video of the Easter story. To celebrate the season, you might like to make an Easter garden. This is one example. Please send us any pictures.Step by step instructions for how to make a Resurrection Garden ...

  • Can you use Lego or any materials to create your own Easter design? Please send us any photos!Looking forward to Easter? Build an Easter bunny! - LEGO Classic ...

  • You could write a story or a newspaper report about an adventure the Easter bunny gets up to.

  • Check out these word searches

  • And these Sudoku puzzles

  • Mr Petts has a YouTube channel and he is posting lots of different challenges on it. Check it out!

  • There are some mindfulness activities in the ELSA support file below.

  • And this wouldn't be an update from Miss Lee if there wasn't some maths! So we've saved some maths questions for you to have a go at below. There are three different levels of challenge for you to choose from.

Lastly, stay safe this holiday and try to have as much fun as possible! WQe miss you and can't wait until we're all back in school together again.
