Youngsters may now be getting in the Christmas spirit at home but at one village school they have already had plenty of practice.

Reception children at St Paul’s Walden Primary School in Whitwell visited Whitwell Watercress to get their class Christmas tree, which they have since decorated and surrounded with presents.

Alex Turner, chair of governors at the school, said: “The dedicated staff are committed to providing enjoyable and memorable educational experiences for all pupils. I know that this trip to collect the Christmas tree will be a treasured memory from the children’s school days and is a great example of how we as a school continue to make the most of our surroundings.”

Headteacher Louise Cerqua added: “Our reception class has certainly been making the most of our fantastic rural location this term with many outdoor excursions. Our excellent children and staff really enjoy being outdoors.”
