RECEPTION VISIT TIMBERLEY ACADEMY
This week the children in Reception have been to visit Timberley Academy to look at all their animals. As the children are reading stories based on animals this half term, we thought it would be a great opportunity for the children to see some of the animals in real life. They had the chance to touch and feel some of the animals including Poj the pig and the hens and goats. They also saw rabbits, fish, birds, alpaca’s and a huge turkey.
The children thoroughly enjoyed this experience!
They had an extra special treat and were taken on a tour of the grotto and winter wonderland and had a special Christmas chocolate to take home!
Dear Parents / Carers,
We have been very busy this week preparing for our very special visitor, Father Christmas. All the Christmas decorations have been put up around the school, including a fantastic grotto. The excitement on the children’s faces when they knew Father Christmas was in school, was lovely to see.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Father Christmas for visiting us at Alston and hope he has a safe return to the North Pole.
Next Thursday we are holding the Christmas Fayre; we hope to see you all their joining in with the fun. If you have any toys that you would like to donate to the Fayre, we would very much appreciate them.
