Dear [NAME]

The Easter holidays are an excellent time to consolidate work done during the very busy Spring Term, as well as being able to enjoy some outdoor life again! Next term is an important term for exams, so the main focus of this newsletter is revision - we know you will find the papers useful. 
The Easter holidays give many families their first real opportunity of the year to get out and about to visit places and to enjoy seeing new life everywhere. Our Spring holiday project will give you plenty of ideas. Enjoy finding out together about Easter celebrations around the world and The first Easter Rabbit.
