Elves workshopPosted: 18th December 2018
Santa’s elves rolled up their sleeves and helped Harlow children to make festive gifts.
The visitors – who looked very much like mums and dads – spent one-on-one time with their own children at Freshwaters Primary Academy.
The Elf Workshops are held over the last two weeks of the autumn term and give an opportunity for parents and pupils to work together on a Christmas project.
Amy Dias, head of school, said: “Elf Workshops enable parents to come in for the last hour of the school day and spend quality time with their children. Each year group has a different afternoon which means those with more than one child can focus on one at a time.
“Teachers prepare an art project for them to work on together, such as making Christmas tree decorations.
“The number of parents who come along to the workshops is phenomenal; it’s just brilliant. Every classroom has been full. It’s a lovely opportunity to get parents into school and involved with their children’s learning. It helps to boost parent and school relationships and communication.”
