Easter Letter for children
How are you? I hope you are all well and enjoying spending time at home with your family.
Lots of the adults have been at school making it sparkling and clean ready for when we are all back together again and we’re all wondering how you’re getting on with your learning packs – I hope you’re working hard!
The next two weeks will be the Easter Holidays. This means that everyone can have some time off, but I started to feel a bit sad that we won’t be able to do some of the things that we usually enjoy doing during the school holidays. We can’t see our friends, we can’t go to the cinema and we can’t explore new places.
But then, yesterday, I found that one of my favourite artists, David Hockney, had shared some pictures that he has painted in the garden of his house in France during the past few days. He said simply: “Do remember they can’t cancel Spring”.
Of course, he is right. Look out of your window or go for a walk. Can you see daffodils, or daisies growing in the grass, or blossom peeping through on the trees? No matter what is happening in the world, it is still Spring and there are still beautiful things for us to look at all around us.
It would be lovely if we could share some pictures of Spring to help cheer us all up. I have sent you some of David Hockney’s pictures to help you. He often draws straight on to an iPad but you can create your Spring picture in any way you like using pencils, paints, collage, photos or even natural materials. Take a photo of your picture and ask someone at home to email it to:
firstname.lastname@example.org . We will then share them on the website so it will be a good chance to see what your friends have been doing.
I know that whenever I set you a challenge in assembly, you are always amazing and you produce work that far exceeds my expectations. Do your best this time; I can’t wait to see all your pictures.
In the meantime stay well, stay safe and have a lovely Easter Holiday.
