Dozens of children at Eldon Grove Academy took part in a project to make the bonnets which were then paraded around the academy.

Early Years Phase Leader Claire Martindale praised the standard of the creations and the parents who helped to make them. She said children from the nursery and reception took part and added: “There were some very creative ideas. We had top hats, baskets and rabbit ears.

“The bonnets were amazing and everyone worked really hard on them.”

Children aged three and four took part in the project and it involved more than 130 children.

Claire added: “The children participate in a variety of activities with various religions and this one was to do with Easter and Christian celebration.”
