THE bluebells were out to add some colour to Lavant House School’s teddy bear’s picnic.
The school welcomed children and teachers from Compton Primary School, Welcome Day Nursery and visiting parents on Friday.
And before the day pupils had made prayer flags in memory of the thousands of people killed in last weekend’s Nepal earthquake disaster.
The morning commenced with junior Lavant pupils escorting the little ones through the bluebell woods to lots of oohs and aahs as the children hand-in-hand explored the woods, circumnavigating the small horse jumps along the way.
Barbara Carpenter, grandma to one of the children, said: “It’s been an absolutely fantastic walk through the bluebell wood, beautiful and everyone friendly and lively.”
Mother Amanda Ashman-Wymbs agreed, adding: “Beautiful Bluebells, lots of lovely grounds, well cared for.
“My daughter has really enjoyed it. The juniors were very caring and looked after my daughter.”
After the walk, all the children sat outside the veranda on picnic rugs together with their teddies to enjoy a sumptuous feast of sandwiches, sausages, fresh fruit and an assortment of cakes.
It was then time for the maypole dancing demonstration by junior Lavant, appropriately dressed, despite the weather, in summer frocks, and they gave an outstanding demonstration of several dances.
Finally, stories were read by Lavant’s juniors in groups to attentive visiting children.
