Easter Eggstraveganza!

Following on from the Easter services led by Father Peter and Father Chris earlier in the week, the children had been looking forward to the celebrations and took great care in their preparation.


The event began with an Easter Bonnet parade. The children paraded with such enthusiasm and there were so many different styles of bonnet on show. After parading in front of the rest of the school, a winner was chosen from each class to receive an Easter Egg. All children who took part received a mini egg.

The children also took part in an egg decorating competition. The children had to take a hard-boiled egg and paint or decorate it to look like something or somebody. These were on display in the school hall throughout the morning, and every class visited to see them. The attention to detail on the eggs was excellent, and as with the Easter Bonnets, the children used their imagination well to come up with some very original ways to decorate them. Choosing winners from each class was a really hard decision!


Just when we thought the day could not get any more ‘egg-citing’, the children picked up their hard boiled eggs for an egg rolling competition. The task was simple; boil an egg and see how far you can roll it. Whoever rolled the furthest from each class won a prize. The children soon found out it is much harder to roll an egg than it is a ball!


The school’s PTFA rounded the day off by holding an Easter Egg Hunt. Younger children paired up with older children to search for the various clues in the school grounds to help them build up a picture of the Easter Bunny.

The day was a huge success, with the children taking part in the various competitions, whilst also remembering the importance of Easter to us as a Church of England Academy.
