  • Make an Easter card for someone you love, you could even post it to someone that you haven’t seen for a while
  • Hold an Easter egg hunt around the house or in the garden. The children could hide the eggs for parents/siblings to find.
  • Polystyrene eggs painted and stuck together to create a centre piece
  • Cut out large egg templates from card stock. Then provide the children with the template, tape, scissors, chalk and some water. The children can use the tape and scissors to make a design on their egg template.

Talking Points

These 100 ‘shorts’ are divided into 3 playlists: Age 4-7, 8-11, and 11-16. They provides a perfect introduction to philosophy for younger and older children alike, modelling discussion and argument through colourful, fun characters and irresistible questions.

Use at home…

To use with children at home, simply press play. Afterwards, ask them for their opinion. Do they agree with Spot or Stripe and why? Do they have another angle on the question? Fun conversation can be enjoyed as a family, or with two more siblings talking together. It can be fun for parents to take the opposite point of view for the sake of argument.

French

Lisa Kaler, our French teacher, has created a ‘Team Home School’ section on her website with lots of free, fun activities for you to do as a family – click here:   https://www.petite-etoile.co.uk/about.  Each week she will be covering a different section of vocabulary with a new song and a new story to listen to.   Also, check out the ‘5 minute wake up and shake up’ in French, also the links to ‘Bilinguasing TV’ which has free French resources and more songs and games.

Lisa has also created a new section just for St Lawrence Primary pupils in the ‘Our Schools’ section:
