The Easter Egg Hunt – for Key Stage 1
The Easter Egg Hunt – for Key Stage 1. This is a class play/assembly lasting about 10 minutes, based on the same nine birds as used in the Key Stage II version (this is just called Easter Egg Hunt) but with a further 21 feathery friends to make up the numbers – to 30.
