Make your Easter bonnets and decorate an egg!

Easter may be a few weeks away yet, but the holidays start next week and we have some exciting Easter activities planned for the last day of term next Friday, 23rd March,  for pupils in the Lower and Upper Prep departments.  Children may decorate a hard-boiled egg at home and bring it into school on Friday – in a named container, please. There will be individual prizes for the eggs that roll furthest in our egg-rolling competition and we will roll for an overall school winner!

Children are also invited to design and make an Easter bonnet to bring into school on Friday. We will have a parade and there will be prizes for the best in each class. This lovely photo is from last year…we especially loved Lottie’s watering can creation – magic!
