PUPILS have been getting creative for a day of Easter-themed activities.

Pupils, teachers and parents at St Margaret’s Preparatory School, in Gosfield, had the chance to model their homemade Easter bonnets and enjoy a whole range of festive treats.

Pupils from the school’s nursery joined Years One and Two as the first to show off their colourful headwear.

A spokesman for St Margaret’s said: “Colourful headwear was festooned with bunnies, lambs, chicks and other traditional symbols of spring.

“Some hats towered high above the children’s heads and had to be held in place as they paraded.”

Pupils in Years Three to Six were challenged by teachers to design and make their own Easter bonnets.

The spokesman said: “Parents and teachers applauded their artistry during the second parade of the day.”

As well as parading their Easter creations, Year Three pupils put their maths skills to the test by solving clues around the school grounds.

They had to follow a trail of maths clues to discover a hidden Easter message.

The parent association also got involved with the festivities by hosting an Easter bake and book sale.

Proceeds from the sale will be used to buy audiobooks for pupils across the school to enjoy.
