It has been a week of wind and rain—but at last the sun came out in time for Easter in London’s Docklands.
These East End youngsters on the Isle of Dogs couldn’t wait for the sunshine.
It brought out the smiles as well as the clear blue skies—just right for their Easter bonnet parade in the school playground.
The pupils of Cubitt Town Infants let their imaginations run riot designing and making their own bonnets for the sunshine parade.
“The children made Easter hats at home in true Isle of Dogs tradition,” Year 2 teacher Sandy Pennock explained.

“Their parents helped, of course, but then they brought the bonnets to school and proudly paraded them around the playground.”
Sandy got out her camera and snapped the youngsters in their bonnets to display in the school hall to show parents and for the school’s archive.

The mums and dads were invited back to the classroom after the parade as a “thank you” for helping the youngsters and to have refreshments the children prepared themselves.
It was “a great way to celebrate the end of a busy term” for the pupils and teachers and for the start of the holidays!
