Easter egg hunts are always a calendar highlight at our ELT schools. Both students and staff participated in the hunts, following clues and solving riddles – a great way to practice English, make friends and have fun!
At Malvern House Brighton they created a series of 15 clues for different places around the school. Students were divided into 3 teams by picking colours from a hat, and then the race was on! Students followed the same clues but in a different order for each team, leading them. The winners were Carlos and Isabel from Brazil!
At Communicate School they organised an Easter egg hunt across the entire school. Students searched the centre for Easter eggs in an exciting treasure hunt, following clues and solving riddles. Everybody (students and staff) had an amazing time. Here is a picture of the winner, Rada, with his chocolatey trophy
At Malvern House London, the 18 classrooms all have a name, as well as a number, written on the door. The name on the door is also the name of one of London’s famous Underground stations that can easily be reached from Kings Cross station only a few hundred metres away from the school.
To win a prize during the Easter egg hunt, the students first had to solve a clue – for example:A famous detective once lived in this place. The road where he lived will start off this race…’
‘A famous detective once lived in this place. The road where he lived will start off this race…’
the answer was, of course, ‘Baker Street Underground Station’ (221B Baker Street being the home of ‘Sherlock Holmes’), and if they go to the classroom that has ‘Baker Street’ written on it, the Easter egg was hidden somewhere inside the room.
Every team that entered the competition won some prizes, but the fastest team to find all the Easter eggs got the biggest prize!
