# Easter Activities

### Easter holiday activities

We understand that the two week holiday in these strange times may be quite daunting. We will keep adding some activities to keep the children busy and support family wellbeing and mindfulness. Make sure to stay safe, be kind to each other and more importantly look after each other.

### Baking and cooking

Try out some home baking or cooking together. We are sure you have plenty of your own recipes but if you are stuck for ideas check out this weblink.

### Easter crafts

Why not have a go at making an Easter bonnet or your own Easter cards.

### Jigsaw puzzle

Why not as a family work on a jigsaw puzzle at home. It does not need to be completed all in one go but could be an ongoing challenge.

If you do not have one why not complete puzzles on line. This website has a daily challenge and you can change the number of pieces and make it more difficult by changing their shape too.

Happy puzzling!!

### Lego challenge

Why not try out the different lego challenges. Let your imagination run wild.

### Librarian

Imagine, you are in a library and a child of your age comes in and asks what book you would recommend for them to read. Would you know what book to suggest to them? We would like you to read a book of your choice and share details about it, using the template below.

Please then email us your suggestions and who you would recommend the book for. After the Easter holidays, we will compile a list of recommended books by you, Year 4, on the website.

Audio books - Keep tuning in after 11am each day to listen to the David Walliams Elevenses audio book

### Living history project

We are all a part of living history right now. You are a part of this, and it will be talked about for generations to come. Why not document this living history and check out the project details below.

### Maths challenges

Before you say, no way, check out some of the different puzzle activities we have.

- A code breaker where you use visual clues to multiply and divide by 10 and 100 to solve

- A multiplication square jigsaw puzzle.

### Mindfulness

Why not try to make a mindfulness Glitter Jar. The glitter jar represents the mind settling. It is a great afternoon activity that you can keep coming back to as a mindfulness practice. They can also be used as a timer.
