At 2pm on Saturday 21st September, we opened our doors, ready to welcome past, present and future families to our 10 year celebration.
Inside awaited some very small furry animals waiting for a cuddle. Well, they were not disappointed as the little animals received many cuddles from children, staff and parents. Sarah from Nore Valley Farm taught the children how to gently hold and pet the animals and ensured that each child was given the opportunity to hold either a chick, rabbit or a guniea pig.
Accompanying Sarah, was also some ducks, a baby pig and a very popular baby goat. Sarah's goat roamed around outside playing with all of the children. It is hard to know who enjoyed the day more, the goat or the children?
In the Red Room, Firefly Parties and Events provided the children with fantastic balloon creations and face painting. We had many different characters wandering around the party- spiderman, butterflies, rainbows, batman and lots more. The children all took turns at having their face painted and were very good waiting patiently for their turn.
Longfield Academy's disco was bustling with excitement. With Ciara and Siobhan acting as the Dj's for the afternoon, they definitely pleased the children and parents with their excellent choice of music. Who doesn't love a good Disney song?
Barbara, Lauren and Jessie encouraged a bit of healthy competition among parents and children with their races and games. The children (and adults) joined in the egg and spoon races, parachute games, sack races.
The children took a break from the activities to have a little treat and a rest!
We would like to thank everyone who helped us to celebrate our 10th Birthday, we had a fantastic day and we hope you all did too!
Keep up to date!
