HATS off to these creative young people who will celebrate Easter in style.

Fashionable youngsters at Sharples Primary School added a sparkly edge to their uniform.

And to show off their flair they staged a spectacular bonnet parade and showcased their decorated eggs to parents.

The fun events were part of children’s learning about the Easter story.

And staff and parents, who were invited in for the bonnet parade, in which 78 infant pupils too part, were impressed with the children’s “egg-cellent” efforts.

Pauline Clarke, business manager at the school, said: “There was standing room only at the Easter bonnet parade.

“The children had all made their hats at home, none were bought, and they had put a lot of effort into them.

“It was a lovely way to end the term and all the children enjoy learning about each others festivals.”

The winners received a chocolate egg, and everyone received a smaller egg for taking part.

Alan Hemmings, headteacher, said: “The children had a lovely time. We hold this event every year and pupils and staff are always excited to do it — it’s a nice tradition.

“Even though we are a mixed community school, this event is for everybody. It’s great to bring everyone together and share in the moment.”

The winners of the Easter bonnet parade were Ismael Ibrahim and Callum Mann, both nursery pupils, aged four; Adam Omarji, a reception pupil, aged five; Zeb Patel, a Year One pupil, aged six and Mariya Raza, a Year Two pupil, aged six.
