# Eggs, Eggs, Eggs!

Today we have had lots of Easter fun. Most of it has involved eggs, boiled and chocolate!

We have had lots of fun in class looking at all the decorated eggs as part of our competition, teachers found it very difficult to decide on the winning design. Some classes went outside to roll their eggs in the playground to see who could roll the farthest and we have had an Easter Egg Hunt in school, if you were lucky enough to find a paper egg hidden around school then you could trade it for a chocolate one!

Here are some photos of our fun filled day. Happy Easter!

Congratulations to the winner of our Easter Egg Raffle, Kyle!
