Airfield and Arches welcome Father Christmas to Shobdon
Today Airfield and Arches Class walked down to the airfield dressed up in their festive hats to meet a very special person! On arrival we were met by Mrs Claus who told us that Father Christmas was on his way. As we peered high into the sky we spotted a tiny dot far off in the distance…could this be Father Christmas? On closer inspection it was a bird! After a few minutes Mrs Claus held up her radio and we listened intently to Father Christmas telling us he was preparing to land. Everybody looked up again and started to wave as a gyrocopter came into sight. A red coat and white beard could be spotted – Father Christmas was coming in to land. We were all enthralled as Father Christmas landed and began to chat to the children who had written Christmas lists. We even had the opportunity to ask some super questions! Did you know that Father Christmas won’t tell you his age but will reveal that he is old, old,old!
Soon enough it was time for Father Christmas to jet off to continue to help his millions of elves stack all the presents on the sleigh ready for Christmas Eve. Mrs Claus invited us into the cafe for a drink and biscuit. We even received a magical Christmas bell.
A huge thank you to all at Shobdon Aeroclub. What a magical Christmas tradition our visits have become!
