This week children have been supported to learn about Easter.
They have made hot cross buns in small groups, carefully reading the recipe and measuring ingredients, taking turns in mixing and problem solving when the mixture is too dry. Cooking is such an effective way to get children talking and using their senses - they often will talk about what they cook and eat at home and that is wonderful for us to share.
Children were also supported in story time, exploring Easter artifacts such as the cross, candle and books which told the story of Easter.
Some children know that Easter celebrates new life and that is why the egg is symbolic as it represents new life.
This morning some children came together to enjoy their own Last Supper - sharing bread and grape juice along a long table. They were surrounded by spring tulips to signify spring too.
Enjoy your break - school reopens to children on Tuesday 13 April.
