Alice in Wonderland tea party for Littleport pupils
PUBLISHED: 11:00 01 April 2016
To celebrate the completion of their school topic for the spring term, children in Year One at Littleport Community Primary School invited their parents to join them in a very special Mad Hatter's tea party.
The children helped to prepare edible delights for everyone to enjoy including scones, sandwiches and of course, by special request of the Queen of Hearts, jam tarts.
To give the event a real sense of occasion, the children dressed up as their favourite character from the classic tale and some of the adults enter into the spirit too.
As part of the event, children completed a quiz all about what they had learned and there were even challenging riddles to work out, much like the one posed by The Mad Hatter in the story.
“It was a truly wonderful way to end our unit of work. The children really enjoyed baking treats for their parents and it presented a great opportunity for children to use mathematics in a real life context,” said Mr Adam Rivett, deputy head teacher for the lower school.
