Mad hatters enjoyed their return to the classroom.
An Alice in Wonderland theme welcomed pupils back to Freshwaters Primary Academy after the summer break.
Not only did they attend a Mad Hatters Tea Party wearing hats they had made themselves, but pupils were also wowed to find part of their school had been spray-painted in the fairytale theme.
Over two weeks, each class completed work around Alice in Wonderland with pupils dressed in fancy dress. They also dined on a themed lunch from a special menu.
Amy Dias, head of school, said: “This was a really exciting way of opening up the new school year for pupils. Each class worked on a different element of literacy, with some writing letters as if they were Alice, some retelling the story and others re-writing the tale. It was a whole school approach with a hook to engage children back into school after the summer.
“The effort pupils put in was fantastic.”
Charity shop ECCO donated crockery for the tea party.
