Easter Competitions 2021

Dear Parents/Carers/Children,




We are delighted to invite children from across the school to take part in a variety of Easter competitions at the infants and juniors.  Once again this year, we are not able to have any Easter Performances in school but following on from the Easter creativity over the past couple of years, we will be having the following competitions with some chocolatey prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each category and for each phase.



Children may enter the various Competitions as shown below.  Any child can enter any category, regardless of year group, allowing them to build on skills year on year.  It is important that entries are brought into school on Thursday 1st April 2021, with your child’s name either on the reverse or somewhere discrete.  We shall post photographs on School Dojo and also include some in our YouTube Celebration Assembly which will be next Thursday too.


Category 1:   Egg(s) in a scene – a blown or hard-boiled egg(s) within a scene of your choice - be as creative as you like.  Why not create for favourite superhero, book character or even a teacher?


Category 2:   An Easter Garden/Spring garden, modern or traditional, using a range of real plants/grass, twigs, stones, etc. (see image below – lots of ideas can be safely googled!).


Category 3:   Easter Bonnets - create a spring inspired hat.


We know our Olton families are wonderful bakers but due to Covid-19 guidance we cannot hold our decorated cake competition in school, however we would love to see your creations on Class Dojo - do send them into your teachers!  We very much look forward to seeing your creations on Thursday 1st April.  Good luck and have fun.


Best wishes.
