Many of the Wise Owls attended the Mayor’s Christmas Concert given by Bolton Music Centre at the Victoria Hall in Bolton. We went by double decker bus which was very exciting, and we just loved the concert, joining in playing instruments and singing amongst other Christmas songs, The 12 Days of Christmas.

Miss Kerry attended a course on Assessing Progress for Children with Additional Needs.

Julie Greenhalgh, our Before and After School Care Manager started working with us and the builders magically transformed the former Butterfly Room into a lovely, cosy HYGGE style environment, including a kitchen area and breakfast bar for older children. We held an Open Night just before Christmas so that prospective parents and children could meet the Before and After School staff, Julie, Dawn and Toni, and could have a look at both the indoor and outdoor provision.

We held our annual Nativity at Holy Trinity Church involving Wise Owls and Owlets. The Church was full and the children were amazing, helping to tell the story, acting, singing and dancing.

We celebrated Christmas jumper day and raised over £50 for ‘Save the Children’.

Wise Owls, Owlets and Busy Bees enjoyed a lovely Christmas party at the new Horwich Leisure Centre. Dazzle the Clown was very funny and we were all very excited to have a visit from Father Christmas. He brought each of us a book. Butterflies and Ducklings had parties in their own rooms.

During the last week we had a lovely Christmas lunch cooked by Miss Jackie, Miss Pat and Miss Polly and some of us wore our Christmas sweaters again!
