Easter is a very special time of the year celebrating new life and new beginnings with the arrival of spring. The teachers ensured that all the children understood the meaning of this religious holiday with a very simple Easter story as part of the school´s personal, social, emotional and cultural studies.
Following some of the British traditions the children were given plenty of opportunities to celebrate Easter.
So that the children could wish all their family a Happy Easter, they carefully prepared different Easter cards; there were groovy hairstyle chicks, pop up Easter chicks and pretty 3D daffodil designs.
The children then eagerly took turns in painting polystyrene eggs to make their very own animal or mini beast. Each class displayed their designs in the school hall on the last day of term.
Easter would not be the same without a traditional Easter egg hunt and so on Easter Monday when the children returned to school they were very excited to join in a school egg hunt. The children ran around the school grounds looking for cardboard cutout eggs, licking their lips as they searched because the teachers had explained to them that at the end of the day the cardboard eggs would be exchanged for a special chocolate egg treat.
