Easter is in the air.

22 Mar

We are in Spring. Can you believe it? 😉

We have just forgotten General Winter  with his  divisions of  rain and cold. Today, sunshine and change in temperature from -2°c to 12°c in 48 hours.

It was so nice that we were full of energy to start getting ready for Easter.  We had an appointment in the art room to illustrate a French tale about Easter. It will be posted here just on time. You will be surprised.
Hugo and Simon 😉

    We are already curious about the fairy tale and your illustrations. 🙂 Creative students in the slideshow…and even a game! ❤ I hope some people of the German team will be on the blog during their holidays and find all your treasures…

    You are absolutely right, Julie. The drawings are really beautiful, I am already looking forward to your next post to see the finished ones. 🙂 Seeing you work on a collective drawing reminded me of the students of 5b drawing and illustrating letters to put the name of our project onto the wall 🙂 They added the word ‘FRIENDS’ for you 😉
    Being here on this blog with all of you is a real pleasure. 🙂

    We like your presentation 🙂 ! We learnt the German team is already on holiday! Our Easter holiday will only last six days 😦 Anyway, this is what we usually do: in some villages people organize Easter games. An example is trying to hit colored eggs which belong to the opponents, it usually takes place in the main square. Some of us meet their relatives and have Easter dinner with them. As a dessert we have the traditional Italian “colomba” and chocolate Easter eggs. Young children enjoy the gift you can find inside the eggs. Some children play a game in the garden if the weather is good: they have to find the eggs which are hidden in some places. Now Serena does that for her young cousins. She puts them into vases or behind the trees or into bushes.
    What about you? What do you do on Easter Day?

    @ Giovanni and classmates:Thank you for your nice comment here. By the end of the week,we will publish a post about a French tale on flying bells. We are preparing it.

    We are not on holidays but we will have Easter monday off next week. Our Easter holidays are programmed at the end of April, in 4 weeks’time. 🙂

    We have the same tradition here, Giovanna. Children have to find hidden Easter eggs or small presents; depending on the region, that is done on Thursday or Sunday. 🙂
    By the way, Thursday is also called “green Thursday”… lots od people eat something green then, preferably spinach and an egg. 🙂
    Maybe some German students check the blog and give some more information… not sure about that though. Some of them go away on holiday…it’s a good time to go skiing in the Alps or Dolomites, isn’t it? I know that Krtek will fly to Dubai 😉 but don’t have any information about the others 😦 Last week was a bit busy…
    @Mrs Munar, your holidays are in 5 weeks…like in orthodox countries? Interesting.

    @ Mrs U, we will be on holidays in 4 weeks …but nothing to do with religion. France is divided in 3 zones for short holidays, A, B & C . We are in zone A so our Easter ( Spring)break will be from April 20th to May 6th. Zone B will be the fist to start their holidays this year and zone C ( Paris and surroundings) the last ones. It changes every year for the benefit of the tourist industry- skiing resorts in the Alps, the Pyrenees and the Massif Central 🙂

    I see, we have the same in summer 🙂 The 6 weeks of students’ holidays – teachers usually go back to school a week before – start on July 13th. 2016 it will be mid-June and coincide with your maritime festival 😉
    As I can see from your dates we’ll be together on the blog for 5 days until May 6th…
