Term dates may differ depending on the council, but most schools break up today (Picture: Getty)If you start noticing more children around, it’s because half term has officially kicked into full gear.
Some families will no doubt go away, especially during the four-day Easter weekend.
Meanwhile others are stocking up on chocolate eggs and bunny crumpets, and planning family-friendly events for the little ones.
If you don’t like the company of kids (they’re not for everyone) you would be wise to stay away from museums, the London Zoo or elsewhere where families like to converge (the park, for instance) – or at least for the next few weeks.
When is Easter half term in the UK?
Most schools will break up today, or did so before the weekend, and the children are off for a grand total of two weeks, returning back to school on Tuesday 23 April.
However, term dates may differ depending on the council.
