Claire Martindale, assistant headteacher/early years lead, said. It was wonderful to see every child in our early years taking part in the parade...
...The children walked around school and the older pupils and staff clapped to show their appreciation...
...We had racing car bonnets, top hats, carrot bonnets, bunny ears and so much more!
...One thing for sure we have very creative families at Eldon Grove Academy. I would like to thank the families for all the work and support with this project.
The children also took part in Easter card making and also an Easter egg hunt.
There was certainly nothing to be sheepish about with this quality headgear
All manner of Easter finery was to be seen.
Well done to all!
