Nursery and Reception children at Brookham Pre-prep in Liphook held a special Easter celebration.

The children at the Liphook pre-prep dressed as chicks, rabbits and lambs wearing the Easter bonnets they had made and delighted their parents with a fabulous end of term performance.

Bright colours were the order of the day as children donned yellow, orange, pink and green costumes to celebrate the spring.

The Reception children recited the exciting story Chickens Can’t See in the Dark and Nursery sang some of the songs that they had learnt at school.

Suzie Songtime, who offers vibrant and original combination of music, song and spoken word for children from birth to the age of five, conducted the Reception children as they performed their instrumental piece.

The school reported that their rhythm and timing was nearly perfect.

All Brookham children were then challenged to find toy Easter chicks in the playground, which the staff had enjoyed hiding in some very ingenious places.

The Nursery children enjoyed an Easter trail of tasks and clues to find the golden egg in their garden and were all rewarded with a plastic egg containing a toy animal.

Finally the children had the opportunity to decorate a hard-boiled egg and egg cup to take home.
