The last few weeks have been full of festive fun at Bamford Pre-school. During our craft sessions, our pre-schoolers have been busy using their skills and creative flare to make Christmas decorations and cards, as well as a nativity scene which is displayed in the Methodist Church. We are fortunate that one of our parents was able to share a German tradition of making festive biscuits with a treasured recipe. Our culinary activities were popular with our little ones and their families!
We also used the upcoming festivities to think of others by supporting Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper fundraising campaign, and singing at Bamford’s Seniors’ Christmas lunch at The Anglers Rest. We didn’t forget our animal friends either, as we have been looking after them by making bird feeders and food for Santa’s hardworking reindeers.
All the excitement culminated in our Christmas Party where the children enjoyed educational entertainment from ‘Oreo and Friends’ with their menagerie of animals, including armadillos, tarantulas, meerkats and snakes. The children gave a fantastic performance of their Christmas Carols to their family and friends to round off the celebration. An extra special visit from Father Christmas helped ensure that everyone was ready for 25th December!
Caroline Hunter, Pre-school Leader, said “The last few weeks have been busy and extra special full of fun activities for developing skills and thinking of others. Thank you to everyone for your support through our December raffle and ordering our bespoke Christmas decorations which together have raised over £500 – a fantastic amount which will make a real difference. On behalf of all the staff and committee I would like to wish all Bamford Pre-school’s families and friends a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!”
