Picture Gallery: Barking and Dagenham pupils celebrate Easter
Hats off to pupils across the borough who showed off their colourful head wear to celebrate Easter.
Youngsters and some teachers adorned their bonnets with all sorts of Easter decorations, including rabbits, chicks, daffodils and feathers.
The children, from Village Infants, in Ford Road, Dagenham; Cambell Infants, Langley Crescent, Dagenham and Ripple Primary, Suffolk Road, Barking paraded their creations around their school or along nearby streets.
Pupils at Ripple Primary were lucky enough to be joined by a rather large Easter Bunny.
Grafton Infant pupil Chelsea Roast, seven, sported one of the most original bonnets in the form of a hatched egg, which she wore in an Easter parade at the Barking school.
