The pupils worked in small teams that they had themselves chosen and raced around the school playground hunting down a number of decorated paper halves of eggs. Once all the pieces had been found and matched up by each group they received prizes of real chocolate eggs.

The event was organised by the school’s Parents in Partnership (PiP) group and was a fundraiser to help pay for new painted markings in the playground. Parents donated the prizes and each child paid £1.50 to take part.

About six members of PiP came into the school on the day to help run the Easter egg hunt.

The school’s assistant head teacher, John Parkin, said: “It was a great community activity to celebrate Easter. The pupils worked together in teams and it helped with them learning their numeracy too.”

The pupils have been hearing about the Easter story this week, and attended a service at Shalford’s St Mary the Virgin Church earlier in the week, for which they had been practising their singing beforehand.
