As Easter break rapidly approaches, I’m sure more than a few of you are bewildered by the thought of how to keep everyone entertained and active during these three weeks.
Luckily I’ve been working on some great ideas for how to spend these few weeks at home, along with a little help from the staff here.
School term ends 31st March and we will be back on 25th April this gives everyone a lot of time to try something new. Or gain some much needed Easter sun if you’re lucky enough. For those of you staying at home here are my top picks for the holidays.
My first recommendation would have to be the Robot Zoo at Horniman Museum in Forest hill, this exhibit recreates a multitude of animals in robot form to display their inner workings, making biology accessible and fun. Great for the younger pupils at The Moat.
Sunday 2nd April will see the 163rd men’s Oxford, Cambridge Boat race and also 72nd women’s race. Events will start at around 12pm right here in Bishop’s Park. With events and festivals for much of the length of the river, it promises to be a fantastic day out (weather permitting of course).
Wembley’s SSE arena will host The Harlem Globetrotters on the 13th April. The world famous exhibition team is in the middle of their 91st year of touring, featuring incredible crowd interaction, trick shots, rim shattering dunks and a liberal dose of comedy. Tickets are available through the attached link, and I can assure you it is a great night out for adults and children alike.
Dulwich Picture house is currently hosting a fantastic exhibit with the works of Vanessa Bell, perhaps an option for a cultured rainy day trip. The show includes a great variety of stimulating and colourful works, alongside the galleries incredible permanent collection.
All Saints Church Hall, in Fulham will host a ‘Harry Potter Yoga Workshop’ Tuesday 11th April. Join Camille and Serena from 10am-1pm for yoga, games, potions, spells and fun. You can reserve a place by emailing either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The O2 arena is still running the ‘Star Wars Identities’ exhibitions a collection of props and quests for everyone. Mr. Comoli would like to strongly recommend this to any Star Wars fans! The exhibit also focuses on the educational aspect of the series, including theoretical sciences, maths and literacy. You can get tickets for the exhibit here. It’s not a trap.
Of course everyone will have more ideas for adventures during the holidays and we would love you to share with us. Just tag us on twitter (@TheMoatSchool) or Instagram (@moatschool). Always feel free to post any ideas for other parents and carers on The Moat School Facebook page.
Enjoy your holidays see you all in April!
