Easter collection

Whether you are looking for lessons of a spiritual nature or some seasonal fun flavour, we have hand-pick some of the best resources on TES to make your planning easier. There’s plenty of card-making, storytelling and egg finding activities to keep your pupils engaged in the run up to the Easter break.
