On Thursday December 7th. the children in Reception travelled to Birches Valley in Cannock Chase to visit Santa in his Grotto. After a very rainy start to the day the sun came out just as we arrived which meant that we could have lots of fun on the playground with our friends. When it was time to meet Santa we were greeted by his reindeer and travelled through a passage of twinkling lights and snowy scenes to his cosy cabin. Santa spoke to each and every one of us and we were all eager to tell him what gifts we would like for Christmas. He gave everyone a Santa badge and a small fir tree to plant in our gardens at home. We cannot wait to watch them grow into our very own Christmas trees! We all had a wonderful time!!
