If you look closely you can just begin to see the mornings grow lighter, brighter, and warmer. It can only mean one thing: spring is on its way and Easter beckons. While it might be a tad too early to don your bunny ears and start nibbling chocolate, it’s never too early to consider your Easter lesson plans for KS3 students.
Using Beyond’s basket-full of secondary resources, prepping for Easter’s never been easier!

Eggsellent Easter Resources for KS3 English 🐣
If you’re growing tired of tenuously linking Lennie’s love of rabbits to Easter (anything to get them behind Of Mice and Men ey?) look no further than Beyond and our Easter-themed mini writing project – the perfect choice for the final few days before the Easter break.
KS3 Easter/Spring Mini Writing Project
What could be more Eastery than a piece of independent creative writing on the theme of spring? Using a range of non-fiction texts, namely “Why the Eggs and Bunnies?,” “10 Things You Probably Didn’t know about Easter,” and an extract from the Diary of Julie Spinner, KS3 students must synthesise relevant information and create their own mini writing project – whether that’s a blog, social media post, or everyone’s fav: a newspaper article.
Let your little bunnies choose from the following topics and let their creativity flow:
- Spring festivals from the past
- The history of Easter
- Easter around the world
- Easter traditions
- The symbols of spring and Easter
Ideal for the final few lessons on the approach to the Easter break or as an extended homework piece, Beyond’s KS3 Easter/Spring Mini Writing Project is the ideal Easter resource for KS3 English…it’s time to get cracking.

Eggceptional Easter Resources for KS3 Science 🐤
We’ve seen how we can weave Easter into KS3 Maths and English but what about the science behind Easter? Well, with a little chocolatey Easter magic, you and your KS3 science students can recreate the rock cycle at home.
Rock Cycle Modelling with Chocolate
Four words: chocolate shavings rock cycle…need we say more?
A festive secondary resource sponsored by the Easter Bunny himself, KS3 science students recreate the rock cycle with chocolate, layer by layer.
Creating a practical model of sedimentation and compaction, KS3 science students create chocolatey variants of sedimentary rocks, only to mould them into metamorphic rocks and then melt them into igneous rocks. It’s the perfect Easter science experiment for KS3 students and teachers alike!
You can always over-order on your chocolate supplies too if you’re in need of a sugary reprieve by this stage…we won’t tell anyone…
Well, there we have it! Easter lesson plans for KS3 that you can dish out at the drop of some bunny ears. Happy Easter from Beyond.
