Special Event - Nursery and Reception go to Ash End House Farm

13 December 2010

The Nursery and Reception children had a fantastic time at the farm this week. The children got up to lots of things! They played in the new Play Barn which had a brilliant soft play area with massive slides and ball pits. The children had great fun and even the young Nursery children braved going down the biggest slide showing no fear!

After the fun time had in the Play Barn the children had lunch in Sheepy's barn. After lunch we split into two groups and went around the farm feeding the animals and stroking them.

We dressed up and listened to the story of Christmas in the barn. Mary and Joseph played their parts very well!

Before going home we all got to see Father Christmas in his Christmas cottage. All the children sat on his knee and told him what they wanted for Christmas. Father Christmas said, "Only good boys and girls get Christmas presents!" So remember children... be good and Father Christmas will bring you lots of presents!
