Another week, and another lot of fun and games for the Elf Crew at Crofton Infants. Were they in your class this week???

Here they are learning about the Roarsome Dinos in Class 3.

Climbing the tree in Class 10! Is that a backflip I can see one of them doing? Now that's impressive!

Oh no Class 17! They were caught sneaking the chocolate out of the Advent calendar. Give it back!

Look at Class 4's new teacher! Now that would be a funny lesson!

Just casually hanging around with the snowman in Class 7.

Class 2 has some very interesting books! Here they found an atlas...maybe they are planning a trip, maybe they need help getting back to Santa in time for Xmas Eve?

Let's get creative! Even the elves helped with the classroom decorations - we love the paper chains in Class 11.

A big thumbs up for the train set in Class 14! They absolutely loved playing with this! Choo chooooo!

Mmmmmmmm chocolate! Hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows! They had a nice time in Class 8 drinking these!

Class 18 had the perfect little house to play in - an Igloo! Home from home.

๐Ÿ“ฃ Wow wow wow! We raised a whopping ยฃ5k this year at the PSA Christmas Fair! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Massive THANK YOU to the organisers and volunteers. These events would not be possible without you!

..and of course THANK YOU to our Crofton friends and families who came to participate! We had a blast!

Events like these contribute so much to our school and, ultimately, our children and their education. Please keep up the support! It really does make such a difference....ยฃ5k! ๐Ÿ’œ
