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.
Middle School Easter activities
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.
Easter -Depending on what you have around the house, or whether you are already buying food for your pets, you could make some egg-shaped bird seed feeders. There are lots of instructions online. Here’s one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ-qoY4PbSI.
Art - Do some Easter-themed artwork. Here is a step by step tutorial on drawing the Easter bunny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNKRfEQoE0E. This one shows you how to draw an Easter Egg folding surprise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDl3PXioJ1s
History – Find out about Easter traditions around the world. Where in the world do children receive Easter treats from the church bells instead of the Easter bunny? Where and when does the annual Ruzzolone competition take place? Which countries celebrate on Easter Monday?
PE – Set up an Easter Egg and Spoon Obstacle Course in your home or in the garden. Use whatever you have to create the course – maybe you have some sports equipment or you could race up and down the stairs. Now time everyone to complete the course whilst balancing an egg (or a potato) on a spoon!
Computing – Please access your purple mash log in and there will be tasks in your ‘to do’ area.
Also, check your class blog, if you have one. There may be activities and space to share work there.
Jokes - Can you tell some Easter jokes? Who is the funny bunny in your family? Can you make up some jokes or find some online or in books you have at home. You could write your own joke book. What do you get if you pour hot water down a rabbit hole? Hot cross bunnies!
Well done to Harrison, Casper, Elsie, Francine, Jeremiah and Favour for reading this week on Bug Club.
