This week something very exciting happened in the Swans classroom. We had a visitor. It was a scout elf. She had been sent by Father Christmas to hide in our classroom each day and watch over events.
The scout elf told us that once everyone leaves the classroom at the end of the school day, she will fly back to the North Pole to report to Father Christmas the activities, good and bad, that have taken place throughout the day. She told the children that before they return the next morning, the scout elf will fly back from the North Pole and hide again in the classroom.
The children named their elf ‘Sparkle.’ Once Sparkle had been named she received her special Christmas magic, which allowed her to fly to and from the North Pole.
However, the children were told that the scout elf’s magic would disappear if the scout elf was touched. Although the children were told not to touch Sparkle, their scout elf, a couple of children couldn’t resist! This meant that Sparkle did not have enough magic to fly back to the North Pole. Trying to fly she crashed into lots of things in the classroom and made an almighty mess!
The children decided to make a bed for Sparkle to rest in and they decided to write her some messages in order to get her magic powers back.
The children left their messages in the classroom by Sparkle. Luckily the next day we found Sparkle in a new hiding place in the classroom. She had received her magic back and was flying fit once again! This time Father Christmas had given her a mobile phone so that she could text him messages about the activities, good and bad, that have taken place throughout the day. We are hopeful that we are on Father Christmas’ good list. We hope he comes to visit us on Christmas day!
