The Dolphin School held its annual Christmas Fair on Saturday December 4. It was the first in the new school building and attracted hundreds of families, including many new faces. 

The highlight was the Elf Workshop. Children came to ‘Elf School’ and learnt how to make Christmas biscuits, wrap presents and got to meet Father Christmas. The children asked Father Christmas lots of questions about where he lived, his reindeer and what food to leave him on Christmas Eve. 

In other parts of the school there was a ‘Christmas Bake-Off’ which the School Learning Council had the great job of judging! French and Spanish club sang Christmas songs in those languages and the school choir performed outside with beautiful lights on the building. Children  made Christmas wreaths and enjoyed the craft room. There were great cakes, mulled wine and Christmas gifts to buy. 

Head teacher Shelley Dixon said: "The PTA did a fantastic job organising it and raised over £500. This paid for a pantomime for the school. The children loved watching Scroogical the musical! The Christmas Fair finished off with an impromptu conga from Father Christmas with all the children and families following him. Thank you to everyone who came.”
