Hunting for eggs to finish the school term
Ahead of the Easter school holidays, pupils at a West Norfolk primary school were treated to a day of fun.
Ingoldisthorpe Primary School children were challenged to locate hidden Easter eggs through a hunt on Friday morning.
Hidden within the school grounds, the eggs proved to be an early surprise for the kids ahead of the visit from the Easter Bunny later in the month.
The school is well-set when it comes to the great outdoors.
Located on the edge of the Sandringham Estate, the entire school goes outdoors to learn in the woodlands once a week.
Some of the children ensured they were appropriately dressed with bunny ears for the hunt.
And every child was rewarded for their efforts over the term-and during the hunt-with an egg.
Smarties and Aero were the two types of eggs being eagerly traced by the pupils.
The origins of the Easter hunt are traced back to the late 16th century in Germany.
According to English Heritage, Protestant reformer Martin Luther organised egg hunts for his followers to find.
It held religious symbolism as a reference to the resurrection, in which the empty tomb was discovered without Jesus inside.
