Spring has begun, believe it or not, and as nature opens up to reveal new life and a fresh face of green, we prepare for and discuss Easter, the origins predating the Romans and how it correlates with the more common celebration from the Christian religion as Jesus Christ is remembered.
We discuss Easter eggs, the newly approved deposit scheme for recycling and the children share their weekly highlights.
We’ve had an eggcelent Easter and discuss not only how to blow eggs but also the traditional method of decorating them using melted wax and dyes. Once decorated, we hung our eggs on our seasonal tree, and discuss how to find your own every changing centre piece for free, to sit proudly on display in your home.
It’s St. George’s day at the weekend and Toad tells us the history of George and the Dragon. We talk about traditional British ways to celebrate and encourage our listeners to start their own traditions.
Frogger recites an April poem as we welcome the changing seasons. Finally, Frogger and Toad struggle to narrow down their weekly activities to just one score.
Happy Easter to all of our lovely listeners and a huge thank you for sharing your time with us. We hope you get lots of Easter treats and enjoy your extra long weekend.
On this week’s show we discuss our composting plans and update you on our seed selection as we plant in our vegetable bed.
We visited Whitby abbey, and enjoyed a low sugar packed lunch and share with you our ideas and recipes to enjoy a picnic without compromising healthy eating.
We chat about the Jewish festival of pesach and share a yeast free recipe.
With thanks to mysteries in time, we have moved on to ancient Greece and we discuss how much the children have learned about Greek legends by reading the accompanying book. Toad tells us the story of Persephone.
