Soon we are going to celebrate Easter.
The Easter holidays will start on Thursday 17th March.
We will return to school on Wednesday 30th March.
How is Easter celebrated in the U.K.?
**We give Easter eggs to the children, usually chocolate eggs. There are lots of different types of Easter eggs. They are delicious.
Here is a supermarket Easter food and Easter eggs.
Here is a video of how chocolate eggs are made at CADBURY'S CHOCOLATE FACTORY in BIRMINGHAM ( a great place to visit with children!)
**We eat hot cross buns: sweet bread with a cross on it. We usually toast the bread and add melted butter.
**We send Easter cards to our friends and family members.
Here is a cardshop.
We have Easter hat competitions. We call the hats BONNETS!
The shops have shop Easter window competitions.
In my town, we have a traditional annual football match on GOOD FRIDAY ( viernes santo)
called " The Uppies and the Downies". The two teams of 1000 players come from the high part (uppies) and the low part (downies) of Workington. This football match resembles the first game of football ever played.
Remember football was invented in England!!!! :)
