Easter bonnets took centre stage at Rackham Primary School, in Witchford, on Friday as pupils marked the start of the holidays.

Every class was handed a set of materials at the start of the day and challenged to come up with the school’s best-looking bonnet.

Pupils beavered away at their creations for most of the day until, after lunch, each class voted for a winner and prizes were handed out.

There was also a competition held to decorate an Easter egg for the Year 6 pupils, who were able to take their eggs home for the half-term holidays.
