Hi my incredible 2nd class
Happy Easter to you and your family. I hope you tried some of the activities and that “every-bunny” wasn’t kung fu fighting over who got to do the obstacle course first for PE!!
A little update of what I have been up to: I have mowed my lawn and created an obstacle course in it. I planted flowers, painted my hall, skyped my mum and dad; there are now 73 baby lambs on my farm in Mayo and there is still more to be born!!! I have decided to start keeping a diary of my time off. Maybe you could too and we could have a diary reading party when we return to school. I am so incredibly excited to hear what you have been up to the past few weeks.
I’m going to give you some really fun ideas of things you can do over the Easter.
Lets change PE up a little. Why not have a family “EGG AND SPOON RACE”. This is so easy.
“Easy option” put an egg on a spoon.
“Challenging option” cut a toilet roll in half and decorate it. Then place it on a runner/pencil case and try run while balancing it!!
For drama over Easter I would love to hear you designed your very own Easter parade with all the teddies, pots, pans, cushions, cereal boxes and anything else funny you can think of in your cupboards. The crazier the better. Why not take some pictures to show us when we are all back together (in the best classroom) in school.

Try make a GIFT BASKET for a brother/sister/mum/dad. In this you could put in something you know they would love to have for a little while. Maybe it’s your favourite book or toy. You could also add a very special Easter card you made. The basket could be made from a cereal box, or it could simply be a special corner in your bedroom where they can pick somethings to play with or use.
Lets make your bedroom a bit more colourful and dramatic. Your whole family can get involved in this one. Try create an EASTER ART GALLERY. Ask everyone to design and draw their own Easter eggs/ bunny rabbits/ Easter parade/chicks or anything that is fun and colourful. Then hang them up on your wall or lay them out on your windowsill.
I hope your animal project is coming along well. Try write up about chickens and rabbits over Easter. Remember to give the animal a name, what it looks like, what it eats, where it lives, any other fun facts about it and finally draw a really cool picture of it.
If you “eggs-cuse” me now I am off to design the first picture for my art gallery. I hope you have an “egg-cellent” Easter and don’t get too “eggs-hausted” with the egg and spoon/ toilet roll and pencil case race.
Remember, I still thinks there is absolutely no “bunny” as incredible as you.
Ms. Walshe the incredible.
