On Wednesday 18th December Courtwood were lucky enough to have a visit from Father Christmas, all the way from the North Pole! Parents and children joined Father Christmas for a festive storytelling after which the children all received their own Christmas book! The children enjoyed the opportunity to share their new stories with their adults, whilst enjoying a Christmas cupcake and a hot drink. Usbourne books also attended the event, offering parents a chance to purchase any last minute stocking fillers. Lots of books were purchased, raising an amazing £75 worth of books for Courtwood. Mrs Cleaves was excited to be able to spend this money on some new, engaging books for the reading corners!
