The Pre-Prep celebrates Easter

At the end of the Lent term the Pre-Prep children celebrated Easter.

On Thursday the Pre-Prep congregated in our school Chapel at the end of term to celebrate Easter and show parents their term’s work in Music and Dance.

The service began with Ladybirds performing their foxes song which linked to their topic of nocturnal animals. They had used face paints to look like foxes and joined in enthusiastically with the actions as they sang. The Honey Bees were delighted to sing and act out their wonky bicycle song with super handlebar props as part of their transport topic. The Crickets created a wonderfully atmospheric and slightly scary dragon dance as part of their topic called “Out of an Egg.” The Dragonflies have been learning about countries around the world and performed three song and dance routines, Knees up Mother Brown (England), Kookaburra (Australia) and a Chinese New Year dragon dance (China) accompanied by instruments. All of the Pre-Prep joined together to sing a very funny chocolate song.

Three Dragonfly children read their moving versions of the Easter story and the Chaplain talked to the congregation about the significance of chocolate eggs at Easter before giving a blessing.

All the children performed with a smile on their faces and had a wonderful time. Thank you to all the parents and friends who joined us for this lovely service.

On the last day of term all the children took part in an Easter activity morning organised by staff and the parent reps. They could choose from a wide variety of activities outside and inside. Outside there was archery, cricket, hockey, an obstacle course and hoopla. Inside they could choose to make an Easter hat or egg shaped decoration, cake decorating and a hot cross bun eating challenge. The children had a great time. The morning ended with an Easter egg hunt. The children were amazed to see the real Easter bunny!
