Easter bits and bobs

Tags:

As Bee has said in another post we didn’t want Easter to be a total escape from learning or we may well have been faced with a challenge at the end of the ‘holidays’ and the start of home school. So we sneaked in some daily learning through play and activities with regular whiteboard work in the morning which he loves. As for the rest of the Easter break, here are some things we have been up to…
