Miss Turner and James decided to decorate eggs today. Before we started Miss Turner removed the insides of the egg. First she used a pin to put a hole in the bottom and top of the egg, and then pushed the pin inside and moved it around to break up the yolk and make the holes bigger. She then blew through the top of the egg to push the yolk and white out. When it was empty, she washed it out with warm water and let it dry.
We made our eggs into a chick but there are lots of other ideas for how you could decorate your egg.
Making Easter Nests
This is one of our favourite activities to do in F2 during Easter time. There's lots of fun to be had, measuring, mixing, and getting messy.
Mrs Cooper and her children had a go at making some Easter nests at home. You can use the instructions below to help you make your own Easter nests, or follow the link underneath.
Don't forget to send us pictures of your yummy cakes.
We decided to make an Easter card for James's Grandparents. You could make one too for family or friends that you cant visit at the moment. We are going to put it in an envelope with a stamp and send it in the post! We folded some paper and cut out the shape of a big Easter egg. We then decorated the egg with things we could find - pens, crayons, paints, sparkly things, Easter egg wrappers, pictures from magazines are all great for collage! When the egg was dry we stuck it to the front of our folded paper. James then had a go at writing his name inside. You could try writing the name of the person you are sending it to and 'Happy Easter'. If you don't want to make a card for Easter it could be a card just to let someone know you are thinking of them.
Can you go on a nature walk to see the first signs of Spring? Mrs Arnold went on a nature walk in her garden and took photos of what she found. What can you find in your garden or on a local walk? We would love to see what nature you find. Send pictures that you'd like putting up on the website to: firstname.lastname@example.org
