Youngsters at Hillcrest Primary School in Downham took part in an Easter Bonnet Competition which saw them making and decorating hats for the chance to win a special Easter treat.

The competition was part of the younger children’s learning about spring and Easter, with a special focus on design and technology.

Early years co-ordinator, Lisa Fysh, said: “The children were also able to put their knowledge and understanding of construction and decoration into good practise.

“This activity was completed at home and the imaginative creations sent into school made a very eye-catching display in the entrance hall.”

It was a difficult decision to choose the winners, but Jordan Foote and Charlie Mays took first place in Suns and Moons Classes. Second and third place in Suns Class went to Reuben Cocksedge and Emily Passmore, while in Moons Class the prizes went to Isabella Mitchell and Michael Johnson.

Four-year-old Jordan Foote said: “My hat is a cone – it’s a helter-skelter for chicks. They climb to the top and zoom down the slide.”

Five-year-old Charlie Mays said: “I stuck newspaper on a balloon to make it round. I painted it to look like a Cadbury Crème Egg. It’s so big! I would like to eat one that big!”

Headteacher Linda Howling said: “A beautiful display of Easter hats – lots of colour and such good fun. Well done everyone!”
