This week is all about Easter.

Throughout the week, have a go at some of the tasks below and remember to spend some time together as a family smiley

Using the picture link, find out as much as you can about the Christian story of Easter – can you use pictures and words to write out the Easter story. Put this into your yellow book. You could do it as a story or a comic strip.

Use the same link to find out about Easter traditions, Easter activities and Easter eggs!

Think of a way to present your findings – you could make a booklet, a poster, a leaflet or a powerpoint.  

Design your own stylish Easter egg - email me a picture of your design.

Can you design and draw out your own Easter Egg hunt with clues and game cards?

Make Easter cards / crafts – see the picture for some ideas.
