Under normal circumstances, Wrens, Robins and Chaffinches would be singing a very special song at this time of the year. It has become almost a tradition to sing this Spring song in the weeks leading up to Easter. The children seem to love it and it brings a lot of smiles to many faces. We hope that this version will do the same!!!
We wish all of the children and their families a very happy and healthy Easter.
We miss you. xxx
P.S. If you want to sing along to the original, or some may say better version see below 🙂
Hi everyone, I am missing seeing your little faces!
I have popped some Easter activities on here today, which you could pick from. Thought it might keep you busy, but also get you excited for Easter. I am!
Parents, if you ask your child to draw several Easter eggs, if you have any coloured paper use that, but if not you could get them to just draw the eggs and colour them in.
This would also help with the development of your child’s fine motor skills.(cutting particularly)
Once your child has several eggs created, draw them different lines across the eggs like in the picture, and ask your child to use scissors to cut them following the line to create two halves. (use scissors under supervision)
These eggs could then be used for a maths activity too by simply adding dots on one half of the egg, and the corresponding number on the other. (e.g. 11 dots and number 11) Then mix them all up and ask your child to count the dots on them and find the right numbers to match.
Why not get the paint out, if you have some? Create Easter eggs like the ones in the picture below. You could get your child to cut them out to create Easter cards or join them together with string to create some Easter bunting to hang read for Easter Sunday.
Here is something to develop their ICT skills, but also their creativity. Decorate your own eggs online.
You could have a go at this Easter online word search too.
I have attached some Easter egg hunt clues, which you could either print off (if you can) or copy them down for an Easter hunt on Sunday.
Have fun, and I will be touch again soon.

Found this book, which has been made for our little ones who maybe worried about what is currently happening.
Lots of Love to them

Here are three new ideas to help with developing your child’s maths knowledge.
Challenge 1 – Number Line Run
Why not draw a number line outside with chalk 0-20.
Then ask your child to..
- Go and run to say 7. Then repeat changing the number.
- Ask them to run to the number 1 less than 10. Then repeat using different numbers e.g. 1 less than 12, 1 less than 17, 1 less than 4.
- Ask them to run to the number 1 more than 8. Then repeat using different numbers.
- Ask them to jump on the numbers all the way up the number line saying what they are and then back down it.
Challenge 2 – Coin sorting
If you have a bit of spare change around, you could draw some circles on paper and label them. For example – 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p etc. then ask your child to sort the coins into the correct circles.
Then to develop their coin vocab, ask them to tell you which coins they have sorted.
Challenge 3 – Doubling Fun
If you have a small mirror, this is a great way to learn about doubling. You can use any objects, such as coins, sweets, Lego, counters etc.
If you don’t have a whiteboard and pen, just use paper to write your doubling number sentences. Work on doubling 1,2,3,4 & 5.
At the end you could sing our doubling song.
Double 1 is 2 – Tap it on your shoe.
Double 2 is 4 – Stamp it on the floor.
Double 3 is 6 – Do some finger clicks.
Double 4 is 8 – Stand up straight.
Double 5 is 10 – Let’s do it all again.
We hope you like our suggestions and have fun completing them.
Bye for now
