The Sevenoaks Primary School Festival of Trees
 

A big thank you to EVERYONE who supported this event. It was hugely successful and much enjoyed by all.

Mr Duffy had tried twice to organise ‘The Festival of Trees’ because it is such a lovely festive event but sadly without success. However this year he finally achieved it and it was a great event both in terms of inspiring creativity in the classroom to produce unusual decorations for their class tree and the really lovely evening that was enjoyed by so many at the event.
His first experience of the festival was in Sennen, a village in Cornwall and one of his favourite places in the world. In the weeks leading up to Christmas the church is festooned with Christmas trees decorated by local community groups.
Members of the local community and visiting tourists pay a small amount to see the beautifully decorated trees and enjoy a glass of mulled wine. It is a truly lovely event and one which really fills him with the Christmas spirit.
We decided to recreate the event at Sevenoaks Primary School but give it our own unique spin. Each class decorated their own tree using their own beautifully handmade decorations.
 
Follow the trail
The trees formed a trail around the school to follow. We organised a special Christmas trail for the children to enjoy. Each class tree had a letter on it, which the children needed to spot and note down as they moved around the school. When they completed the route, and if they had managed to find all of the letters, they were able to make a Christmas word. A special prize was awarded to a randomly selected winner.
To make the event even more special, members of the Key Stage 1 & 2 choirs performed during the evening.
Festive mulled wine was on sale throughout to well and truly put you in the Christmas spirit.
