On Monday 12th December we held our Christmas Jumper Day and it was lovely to see so many varied and colourful Christmas jumpers. Many thanks to everyone who joined in and paid their donation which will go to a great charitable cause.
Everyone gathered in the village hall for the last day of term before the Christmas break. First the children performed their nativity play called ‘The Littlest Christmas Tree’ for all the watching parents, carers and grandparents. Sadly we had a few poorly children on the day who couldn’t make the show so Rocco and Lenny stepped in at the last moment to become fabulous Christmas trees for the performance and did a grand job…. well done and thank you boys!! All the children did a great job, remembering their lines and singing all the songs beautifully and they received a huge round of applause at the end for their efforts. Once all the photos had been taken all the parents, carers and grandparents were invited to join in a chorus of the ’12 days of Christmas’ to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. They were given a prop to hold up during the song and some joined in more enthusiastically than others, which was great fun!
Mr Happy from www.theperfectpartypeople.co.uk arrived to get the party started and all the children flocked over towards him. He performed magic tricks, made balloon sculptures and played music and games all with the help of the children, staff and some parent helpers! It was lovely to see fathers, mothers and grandparents dancing with the children and everyone joining in and having a wonderful time. Mrs Christmas also dropped in and set up a grotto for the children to visit her and receive a present and some reindeer food to scatter for the reindeer on Christmas Eve. Some children opened their presents straight away and gathered together in small groups playing with their new toys. Once the entertainment had finished there was just enough time for some refreshments and food before the party was all over for another year. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
