On Thursday 25th March we celebrated Easter with a fantastic Easter Bonnet competition. All the school joined in making Easter Bonnets as part of a homework project over the half term. The day started with an Assembly where all the children wore their bonnets and discovered a bit more about this tradition.
They discovered it was customary to have new clothes at Easter to celebrate new beginnings and the onset of Spring. The idea of an Easter Bonnet Parade was made popular in New York when the ladies would dress up in their finery and parade around Central Park.
Each class had voted for the best two bonnets in their class so these children paraded their designs with the lucky winners receiving an Easter Egg each; each class then voted on the overall winner who received a box of Easter treats.
The children were all very proud of their creative efforts and so the whole school embarked on a parade around the local area to show off their super Easter designs.
Thanks to all our volunteers who joined us to make it a special event for all our children.
