Easter Assembly – 7th April
We ended the Spring Term with a wonderful whole school assembly this morning dedicated to Easter celebrations. We were joined for the assembly by some members of the Southsea Salvation Army band who played for us all throughout the assembly.
We remembered the story of Easter and the symbols of Easter, as well as the tradition of egg rolling. The choir helped us sing along to some of our favourite songs including ‘Thank you for our World’, the ‘Do whupa song’ and ‘Sing a Song in Unison’ throughout the assembly.
As ever, the tradition of egg rolling had everyone excited and wanting a turn! This year four children were chosen to represent every team for the egg rolling competition. Each child rolled an egg for their team and tried to get the closest to the middle of the large target on the floor. Many eggs rolled out of the score zone whilst others bumped eggs out of the way. Each team had four chances to score and after all sixteen eggs had been rolled the team who had the one closest to the middle of the target got 10 points!! There was much excitement as everyone cheered for their team to be nearest the middle of the target! The whole competition was run twice to include children from both the Lower and the Upper School.
We were very lucky once again this year to all be given an Easter Egg to take home; these had been donated by the South Coast bikers. The assembly ended with the Salvation Army playing again as everyone left.
