Easter Holidays

Easter Holiday Activities


Here we will add tried and tested activities to keep the children busy and support family wellbeing and mindfulness. Please keep in touch and let us know if you try any. We'd also love to hear your own suggestions for fun, family-friendly activities. 

Reading challenge

Mrs Daines has issued a challenge to decide the winner of Winston the Reading Worm. The class who completes and sends their teacher the most book reviews over the Easter holiday will get to keep him in their classroom. Let's make sure it is a Year 3 class! You can read you reading book, a favourite book or a new book (remember there are free e books on the Oxford Owl website). We look forward to seeing your book reviews!

Recipes for success!

Here we will compile our best and most delicious recipes for you to try over the Easter holidays. If you have a favourite recipe that you'd love to share, please send it to your teacher so it can be added here.

Abi's Cheese Scones

Mrs Clark's Chocolate Brownies

Michael's Deep-Pan Pizza Recipe

Jake's Carrot Cake Recipe

Jake's top tips: You could try substituting the nuts with raisins. And if you make them in silicone cupcake cases like he did, reduce cooking time to 17 mins.

Mindfulness Glitter Jars

The glitter jar represents the mind settling. It's a great afternoon activity that your kids can keep coming back to as a mindfulness practice. They can also be used as a timer for calming down.

Outdoor Learning

Learning Through Landscapes have created these plans for parents to recreate forest school type activities. The lesson plans are split into age groups but we have added them all here for families with mixed age children.

The Woodland Trust also have a blog of 10 great idea to try at home too:
