Easter extravaganza at Middleton Primary School

Easter was an extremely busy period at Middleton Primary School.

Every class in school had an afternoon visit to Middleton Baptist Church, where Alison Wain and her team taught the children of the Christian Easter Story through song, games and crafts.

Back in school, they raised lots of money for school funds through their annual Easter raffle, and they had a special visit from the Easter Bunny! Children were able to buy tickets to see the Bunny in their burrow and enjoy some time with them.

They also held an Easter Bonnet competition and had an incredible response! The House Captains were among those that decided on the winners, and it was a difficult decision.

Every entry received a prize for entering and the winning three all received chocolate hampers and a dedicated post on School Story.

Finally, they were absolutely thrilled to welcome the Leeds ice hockey team, the Leeds Knights, into school to present all of the children with an Easter egg!

The Yorkshire Childrens Charity kindly donated an Easter egg to every child in school and the Leeds Knights were lovely enough to come into school and hand them out. It was a wonderful afternoon, and everyone was excited to meet the sportsmen and receive their eggs!
