On 3rd December children were invited back to school with their parents for our Bedtime Story Session. The sky was dark, the lights turned down low and the hot chocolate warm. Children snuggled down in their pajamas with their grown ups to share some stories. They also got to have a cup of hot chocolate and a biscuit. Then Miss Ash and Miss Halliday shared a special story for everyone to enjoy. It was a magical experience!
