The Reception children have been on their first trip to the Christmas Tree Festival at the Parish Church in Newark. The children impressed us with their sensible walking to the church and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Christmas trees and how they were decorated. The Barnby Road Christmas tree was of course, one of their favourites as well as the Elf Christmas tree. We walked back through Newark Market Place and spotted the giant Christmas Tree in the middle of the square. The children were mesmerised and couldn’t believe how tall it was compared to themselves and the teachers. On our way back to school, we posted our class letter to Santa. We can’t wait to hear Santa’s response!
