News from Chilton Primary School

The Easter bunny led children on a merry dance as they tracked down cardboard rabbits at Chilton Primary School.

These were hidden around the school and collected on their hunt by pupils from all year groups.

Once they located the bunnies they exchanged them for Easter eggs that were donated by the Parent Teacher Friends Association.

Meanwhile the younger children from Reception and Key Stage 1 groups held a colourful parade of home-made Easter bonnets featuring tiny bunnies and chicks, snazzy eggs and floppy rabbit ears.

Many of the hats were comprehensive works of creative art with so much detail.

The festivities marked the end of term and as well as having a fun time, pupils experienced the true meaning of the Easter festival in a range of assemblies through the week before the holidays began.

Deputy Head of School Natalie Barrow said:

“The design standard of the hats was astounding. So much thought and ingenuity went into making them and the parade was a sea of creativity. The egg hunt was lovely and pupils also made Easter cards as well.”

Head of School Kate Law added:

“Our assemblies looked at how Easter is celebrated around the world and what it means to different people. Major festivals like Easter give our children the chance to explore their meaning and significance, as well as having some fun at the end of another successful term at Chilton.”


Chilton Primary School is part of the Viking Academy Trust together with Upton Junior School, Broadstairs, and Ramsgate Arts Primary School.
