Easter Holiday Activities – 3.4.20

Here is a list of five fun activities to build into your days over the two week holiday.

Prepare a talk on any topic of your choice, which would last about 3 minutes.  

Your talk could include drawn pictures, models, photographs, objects as well as talking.

Use the holiday to plan, prepare and practice your talk.  You can then post your talk onto our Oak or Willow Class virtual classrooms for Mrs Bassett, Miss Eddy and your classmates to watch.

 

Thinking about where you are going for your daily walks/bike rides/scooter rides, think about what you might see, eg. a lamp post, tulips, a blackbird etc etc.  Make an illustrated I Spy sheet (it could be double sided) remembering to put tick boxes. Then when you next go out, take it with you and tick off the things you see.  If you want to share it with us, ask your adult to take a photo and either put it on our Oak or Willow Class virtual classrooms for Mrs Bassett, Miss Eddy and your classmates to see or ask them to email it to us at year2@strathmore.herts.sch.uk.  

 

Ask your adult to follow the link to The Woodland Trust Nature Detectives, where they have 10 activities to choose from. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2020/03/kids-nature-activities-self-isolation/

 

Make a paper boat - find a clip on YouTube or try your own design.  Colour it with crayons if you have them (the wax helps waterproof it a little) and then see if it floats (you may need to pull out the bottom a little to make it stable.) Use a thick piece of card as the wind and then fill a washing up bowl with water and have a race with your adults or brothers or sisters.

 

Do a puppet show.  Using either hand puppets you already have or homemade puppets (use paper or card, lolly sticks and sellotape to make your own), write a script and perform a puppet show for your family.  If you’re Face timing, Zooming, Whatsapp video calling etc, perform the puppet show to your friends and other family members to make them smile.

As the children are used to following a daily routine at school and this can help them keep some sense of security, these are some visuals you may find useful to cut out and display to use with your child at home over the next few weeks to keep some routine and structure to your day during the current situation.
