The last day of term came with added excitement at one Suffolk school, where pupils lined up to show off their finest festive headgear for the annual Easter bonnet parade.

Children from Easton Primary School, near Woodbridge, strode to the village church in their best homemade headdresses for an Easter service, before returning to scavenge for chocolate eggs to take home at the end of the day.

A competition for best bonnet was won by Hugo Jamie, with Jonny Brooks and Samuel Whitfield named first and second runners-up.

Diane Payne, Class One teacher, said: “The Easter bonnets were judged before the children paraded through the village for all to see.

“We invited members of the parish and the preschool along to the church service before coming back to school for the big Easter egg hunt.
