Easter Treasure Hunt

On Thursday, before we got our Easter holidays, we had a Treasure Hunt. We had seven teams. Each team had a code and clues. We had to find the answers to the clues and break the secret code. The code led us all to the hall. The treasure was in the hall!
In the halla, we had some Easter treasures, hot chocolate and marshmallows. The hot chocolate and marshmallows were our treat because we reached our target of 120 points for lining up quietly after our break times!
