To all our wonderful Year 6 children and their families


We know this year’s Easter holidays are going to be different so we wanted to give you some activity ideas you might like to try at home. 

Please know that we are all thinking about each day; wondering what funny things you might have done and if you’re still getting even better at your learning! We hope you’re doing really well at the most important job we have all been given, helping to stop the spread of Covid-19 by staying at home and washing our hands. 

There are many good things happening during this difficult time. People are helping each other, the world is less polluted and we are working out new, even better ways of doing things in the future. 

We wish you all a safe, healthy, Easter holidays,

The Year 6 Team


Easter Holiday Activity Ideas 


  1. Cooking: You could ask an adult to teach you a recipe they love to cook or you could use a recipe book or the internet to find something you’d like to cook. 


  1. Learn a new game: If you have a deck of cards at home there are lots of different games you can play or you can create your own. You could use card or chalk to create your own board game with a set of instructions. 


  1. Planting: whether you have a garden or not, you could plant some seeds and look after them so they grow.


  1. DIY projects: There are lots of  arts and crafts ideas which use things most people have in their homes already. You could try 3D paper book covers, turning cereal boxes into file organisers or making boxes using recycled magazine paper. 


  1. Exercise: We are still allowed outside once a day to exercise so why not go for a walk, jog, bike ride or roller-blade? You could hunt for the rainbows many children are putting in their windows for others to see. 


  1. Languages: Many of you speak another language or may live with someone who does. You could write a story, comic, play, postcard in a different language or make some help cards to teach someone else how to speak the language. 


  1. Puzzles: Maybe you have some puzzles in your home which you can complete. If you don’t, you could make one by cutting up a drawing you have done or a page from a magazine.  


  1. Art: There are so many wonderful art activities you can do at home together. Painting, sketching, taking rubbings, shadow drawing, fruit or potato printing,hand/toes/feet printing the list goes on!
