We spent the last half an hour of our day watching a movie with popcorn and we tried and tested our own Easter nests. They were amazing!
We then went on a ‘Spring Hunt’ to collect some materials to make our own interesting Easter card. We had fun searching for wildlife and found some interesting materials! Look how our cards turned out! Could you find some natural materials in your garden and create your own Spring picture?
Following our morning exercise, we had some playtime outside and some of us helped Mr Addinal to set up the bird camera! We then made our own Easter Nests from scratch! They were absolutely delicious, could you make a batch of your own?
We ended our day with a clued outdoor Easter egg hunt...we were fantastic at working as a team to solve the riddles! Could you create your own clued Easter egg hunt?

We also had a ‘hop-a-thon’. Chester was super fast at hopping. We’ve had an active morning today and made the most of the sunshine. Could you challenge some of your family to a ‘hop-a-thon’?
After our morning Joe Wicks workout we had an egg and spoon race using tennis rackets and balls. We had a KS1 and a KS2 round. It was quite hard!
We added an extra section to our obstacle course by moving some tyres from the Reception outdoor classroom. Have you made an obstacle course yet?

The ‘Burpee Queen’ during Joe Wicks PE, an amazing effort!

Starting the day with Joe Wicks and his PE session!
We looked at some riddles this morning on farm animals. Then we had a go at writing our own riddles. Could you write your own ‘what am I?’ riddle?
The children have been loving the sunshine outside and wanted to use the chalks too, so we created a geometric pattern on the floor and then used chalks to colour in! Do you like our pattern? We were very impressed!
