Two Salisbury Plain primary schools had a cracking last day of term today.
The Reception and Nursery children at Bulford paraded their creations in the school hall and were each rewarded with a Cadbury’s Crème Egg – if their baskets could carry one.
The one rule of the Easter basket was that the basket must be designed to carry an egg.
Sarah Ward, principal at Bulford said: “There are some fabulous creations – from the Death Star – with Darth Vader in situ, Gotham City and an almost life-sized pelican – it’s been an amazing effort!”
Lindsay West, principal at Durrington All Saints said: “This is a lovely way to engage parents at the end of a busy term, get them all in.
“It lets us see how creative the parents are, so we can see their talent – we get nearly 100% participation which is brilliant. It’s just a really happy event at the end of term.”
The Durrington academy school had a panel of judges from the local community; policeman PC Will Todd, councillor Graham Wright and local leisure centre manager Jonathan Hargreave
Both schools are part of Salisbury Plain Academies, a multi-academy trust.
