We had such a surprise today (Tuesday 10th December) when a helicopter landed on our school field! Inside were two elves who came to collect the children's letters for Father Christmas. It was so exciting to see them!
Space Day on Wednesday was so much fun and we learned lots too! We had some amazing costumes, stars, aliens, astronauts and characters from Space films. We enjoyed watching a clip of Tim Peake in the Space Station. We then had an hour in the pop-up planetarium and found out all about light and dark and the planets in our solar system. In the afternoon we had lots of space activities.
