All the children got involved at the Christmas party, starting before dinner by helping to set the table. Our special placemats are marked out showing what goes where, using pictures. They also helped decorate the table using Christmas ornaments, large confetti napkins and Christmas crackers.
During the meal, the children served themselves. We had a whole chicken, rice and gravy and a delicious lemonade drink, also made by them earlier in the day. There was lots of conversation, all initiated by the children, who talked about their favourite Christmas songs and films, Santa Claus and what presents they hoped he would bring.
After the meal the children helped clear away and tidy up, after which we all went off to sing Christmas carols.
