Class 11

Dear Parents and Carers,

Here is a list of different activities you could do at home over the next 2 weeks. These are not compulsory, we thought it would be useful to share some ideas to keep your children entertained.

Warmest regards, The Cathedral School Team.

Upper School Easter activities

Art Projects Decorate some eggs. You might have some plastic or polystyrene eggs already, or you could learn how to blow eggs! There are lots of ways you could decorate your eggs: pens, paints, papier mache, Use what you already have at home or look online for more ideas. Can you decorate an egg inspired by your favourite book character?

Do some Easter-themed artwork. Here is a step by step tutorial on drawing the Easter bunny

This link shows you how to draw an Easter Egg folding surprise

Shadow drawing. Use the spring sunshine to generate shadows and draw an Easter themed scene.

Science Make a rubbery egg! This science investigation takes patience but it is really fascinating. You just need an egg, some vinegar and the ability to wait for a week. If you have all that, you can remove the shell of an egg so that just the inside remains. Find out how to do (and the clever science behind it) here stevespangler Go star gazing – can you identify any well-known constellations in the evening? You may want to use to help you.

Food Technology All to be completed with adult supervision. Make breakfast for your family. You could make it extra special by doing some pancake art – make sure you ask adults for help with this if you try it! Another way of making breakfast could be to serve eggs in different ways over several days – how do you like yours? You could try boiled, poached, fried, scrambled, omelette, baked or frittata? Plan and cook an evening meal for your family – don’t forget to set the table and create your own restaurant style menu! Perhaps your family members can rate the experience based on presentation and taste. Bake Easter themed cookies/biscuits/ cupcakes.
