THE pupils at Jones Memorial Primary School had some special visitors before they headed off on their Easter break on Monday.

The children were joined by a selection of animals, including some chicks and a pet lamb named Gerry.

Speaking on the special visit, Principal Sandra Isherwood said: "The school had a visit from some chicks today, and the children helped to clean their bed out.

"Then they took the pet lamb for a walk, which was beautiful, and drew some lovely pictures."

The activities were organised with help from the older children, as Mrs. Isherwood explained.

"The Primary Seven pupils organised an Easter egg for Primary Two. They designed clues to lead the children to each basket of eggs, which had been hidden in different areas including the garden, the poly tunnel, the woodland and the climbing frame.

"Primary Seven pupils enjoyed watching the excited Primary Twos find all the eggs despite the rain!

"Earlier on Monday, Primary One also went on an egg hunt as part of their forest school learning."

Mrs. Isherwood was very proud of all of the children in their learning, and thanked Katie Thompson for allowing the school this opportunity.
