We are on holidays at last! After the great effort we have done this term, we all deserve a rest. I hope your marks are good and enjoy your holidays. Have fun eating the chocolate eggs and, above all, rest for a few days. Happy Easter, kids!


To finish with this Easter week, we have to talk about the hot cross buns. A hot cross bun, or cross-bun, is a type of sweet spiced bun made with raisins. It has got a cross marked on the top.
English folklore includes many superstitions surrounding hot cross buns. One of them says that a piece of it given to someone who is ill helps them recover. Another one says that sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year. There is also a very popular nursery rhyme:

Egg rolling, or an Easter egg roll is a traditional game played with decorated eggs at Easter, as James told us in his letter. You have to roll your egg down a hill and see if you are the winner. It´s very funny! Have a look...

Another British tradition is to participate in an Easter egg hunt. The Easter Bunny hides chocolate eggs in the garden and we have to look for them. Mmmmmm! Yummy! Ready, steady, go!

Father's Day is celebrated to honour our fathers. It takes place in many countries all over the world, but in different dates. For example, in Australia, Father's Day is celebrated on the First Sunday in September. However, in the U.K., the United States and Canada it is celebrated on the third Sunday in June.
Today is your day, DADDIES. So take it easy and relax for at least a day. Happy Father´s Day!

St.Patricks Day Animated Gifs
Today, March the 17th, is St. Patrick´s Day, the Irish patron . That means that there are big parades all over Ireland to celebrate it. Everyone wears green (green clothes, green hair, green hats, ...) because it´s the Irish colour. And they also hold a shamrock, the national emblem. By the way, do you know the legend of the leprechaun?... It´s said that there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and that a leprechaun is keeping it. So if you see one, go and try to find the treasure. It´s very difficult to catch a leprechaun and take his gold, but it´s easier to find 4 lucky clovers in this game. Just click on the image below and enjoy. Good luck!
