Happy Easter celebrations at primary schools

By Barrie Hudson - 28 March 2024


Noremarsh Junior School in Royal Wootton Bassett was among schools in the Ascend Learning Trust who got into the Easter spirit.

Noremarsh pupils, during their weekly visit from the local farm, had a special visit from the Easter Bunny. 

Children then spent the morning matching up two halves of printed eggs, with the reward of a chocolate egg at the end. 
The school was asked to create five Easter eggs as part of the Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council Easter egg trail, including one decorated with all of the children’s thumb prints.
Wellington Eagles Primary Academies’ Year 4 pupils were the first to use their new kitchen, creating rice crispy cakes with little chocolate eggs on top. 
The reception class welcomed in parents for an easter bonnet parade, with hats they had made at home with their family. 
Year 6 finished the end of term reading their handmade books to Year 1 pupils. The school also visited their local church St James Ludgershall for a joyful Easter service.
Wellington Lions Primary Academy held their very own Easter egg hunt organised by the school’s PTA, with pupils having to find eggs around the library and hallway with chocolate waiting for them at the end. 
The school welcomed in parents for beverages and cake, also organised by the PTA. Janey Marshall from Journeys for Learning visited the school for a workshop that saw pupils re-in act the story of Jesus at Easter, along with why Christians celebrate his sacrifices and the reasons behind them.
