  3. Hehe. Yus. We're doing it for an hour in school this week. Anyone else? x
     
  4. My classes always enjoyed learning about the environment and Earth Hour would be a great time to do this.
    You could look at this for ideas.

    Obviously you couldn't use it during your earth hour but you could use some of the learning activities that are related to the PowerPoint.
    What year group to do you teach? I have done some nice Easter things in the past if you let me know what age group.
     
  5. Ooh you prob won't see this in time now, but they're Y3! Thank you for replying. x
     
  6. My favourite Easter activity lessons were always about looking at Easter traditions around the world and having a go and some of the traditions e.g. Egg rolling, Egg bashing etc. The kids loved trying some of these things and some of them were very exciting!
    Examples of Easter traditions are on here:

    This isn't the website I used to use but for some reason I can't find the one I used.
    Have fun!

    It is on Saturday - we usually make the last hour in school on Friday a low power hour but as we finish for Easter tomorrow it doesn't really work for us this year.
     
  10. Well, I'm afraid I was very lazy and we made hats from paper plates, paint, ribbons and cute pictures of flowers and bunnies etc. The little rugby-playing lads looked SO CUTE I almost died. Ha xx
