Sedgefield Hardwick Primary School enjoyed their annual Winter Wonderland celebration on Friday 6th November. The event, which has been running for a number of years, has become larger and more popular, attracting visitors from Sedgefield and beyond.
This year, visitors were greeted with the sight of four large ‘snow globes’ constructed within the school hall, each one decorated to reveal a different Christmas scene - a living room on Christmas morning, an elves’ workshop, a snowman scene, and a reindeer stables. Christmas punters were treated with a performance dance of Wizzard’s ‘Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’ by the school staff.
In the school corridors, a wide range of stalls were available with wares for all ages. Some stalls were selling products made by Sedgefield Hardwick pupils, and there were also a large number of professional and charity stall holders, all with a wide range of products. Food and drink was also available from Mrs Claus’ kitchen, lovingly concocted by Mrs Claus herself!
After the performance, the snow globes opened to visitors, providing a range of skill games and activities, as well as selfie opportunities! Both children and adults took great pleasure in throwing snowballs, trying to knock the snowmen’s hats off!
Of course, no Winter Wonderland would be complete without a visit from the man in red himself, Santa Claus! He took up residence in his grotto, located in the Reception garden!
Overall, the evening was a large success, and we are already looking forward to next year’s event!
