The children took part in a competition to decorate the inside of a jam jar with an Easter theme. All of the jars were fantastic and the children enjoyed showing their creations to each other. It was a hard task to choose two winners but after much deliberation Grace Wilkinson and Islaam Khan were chosen.

The children then had lots of fun creating some colourful artwork. They had the opportunity to throw eggs filled with paint to create a bright and colourful masterpiece which will be displayed in Year 1.

After that the Year 1 children took part in an Easter Treasure trail around the Billinge House gardens. They followed clues which tested their knowledge of topics covered this term. The children were very excited when the last clue led them inside one of the wooden houses on Discovery Dell where a big basket of chocolate eggs was waiting for them!
