With Easter just around the corner, many teachers are spending their last few days at school getting ready for Easter. Children tend to get quite excited running up to the holidays so often it is a good idea to have the last day or two just doing fun activities rather than trying to do too much work that requires them to use a lot of concentration.
There are a huge number of Easter activities that you can set for the children. If you are part of a teaching agency then you may find that they have a large database of activities and factsheets/resources that you can download to use in the classroom. If you are not part of a teaching agency then you can often find resources online or if your school is registered to Twinkl or similar then you can download information and ideas from there.
Making chocolate nest cakes, designing their own Easter egg or creating a basket and doing an egg hunt is perfect for younger children. You may want to include some fun facts and figures to explain where Easter started and the story behind it, this could be done as part of a religious education lesson or even as a history lesson.
