This week, we’ve been learning about how some Christians celebrate Easter. We’ve made Easter cards, printed spotty patterns on eggs, enjoyed catching floating eggs in the water tray and loved going on egg hunts in the garden.


In the playdough area, we used the dough and decorations to create our own Easter eggs and we also made little chicks using eyes and feathers.

We enjoyed tasting Hot Cross Buns at snack time and we spotted the important symbol of the cross on the top.  Children also joined in with some some other traditional Easter themed activities including making Easter nests, rolling eggs and going on an egg hunt.

Outside, children have been noticing lots of changes in the garden. They loved looking for signs of spring using the clipboards and spotter sheets. They found leaves, buds, flowers, insects and heard birds singing. We talked about the changes in the weather and seasons.

In group time, we learnt a new letter – b for bear and b for bunny!

Help at home – Some of our older children are learning to hear the initial sounds in words. What can you find that begins with a ‘b’? You might find a ball, a biscuit, a badge or some butter. 

For our younger children in yellow group, this might be a little tricky. You could enjoy singing a rhyme related to Easter such as ‘Chick, chick, chicken‘ or ‘Little Peter Rabbit‘. 

We hope that you all have a lovely Easter holiday and enjoy some family time together. We’ll look forward to hearing all about your adventures when we return to Nursery on Monday 17 April.
