There have been lots of lovely Easter activities happening throughout the different classes in school this week and up at St Mary’s Church.
On Monday, the Dazzling Dragonflies started the Easter week off with some gusto by firstly making some lovely Easter hats, which they wore whilst taking part in a mini Easter Egg Hunt in and around the pirate ship. They then went on to decorate Easter biscuits, which hopefully made it home for you to see and hopefully taste!
On Tuesday, we welcomed Reverend Bill into school to lead our assembly on the Easter story. Reverend Bill is incredibly popular with our children and they listened to the Easter story with great interest.
During the lunchtime break on Wednesday, our FPTA had organised an Easter Egg Treasure Hunt for the children. It was so lovely to see our older children helping the little ones, working together to find the various clues around the playground and on the school field.
From the start of the week, all classes have been getting busy with Easter craft activities and cards of various designs – keep a look out for these coming home.
This morning, we were treated to a wonderful assembly at St Mary’s Church, led by our Curious Caterpillars class. The children presented to us ‘Easter from around the world’, informing the family members present about the different Easter traditions from other countries. One tradition which caused quite a lot of hilarity was the sprinkling of water on the girls heads – this is a tradition from Poland and usually carried out on Easter Monday. Other countries were represented by Egg Rolling and Easter Egg Hunts amongst other things.
We hope you make the most of the Easter break with family and friends and look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 29th April.
