IT has been a busy few weeks at Uplyme Pre-school and, despite COVID-19 restrictions, the children have managed to enjoy the usual Christmas activities and fun.
They have been making paper chains, sending Christmas cards to themselves as well as playing Christmas party games.
Father Christmas even spared time for a socially distanced visit. Usually, the children would meet together to perform their Nativity play in front of all their family and friends.
To ensure families didn’t miss out on the Christmas tradition, the children have acted out parts of the Christmas story in their bubbles, which the staff filmed and this has been sent out to parents for their enjoyment.
The staff praised the children for the way they have coped with the changes that the pandemic has brought, with pre-school sessions being run outside whatever the weather, and they hope the new year will bring less restrictions.
Children at Mrs Ethelston’s Primary School in Uplyme also got into the festive spirit before breaking up for Christmas.
They took part in the national Christmas Jumper Day to raise funds for Save the Children. The pupils attended school in their favourite festive jumpers and raised almost £200 for the charity.
