All Aboard for a Magical Journey

Sleigh bells ring
are you listening
in the lane
snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
we’re happy tonight
walking in a winter wonderland

 

The sights, sounds and smells of Christmas were very much to the fore as our PGCE students transformed the Orchard Building into a truly winter wonderland for the pupils of Fane Street PS to enjoy as part of our annual PGCE Christmas playful learning workshops. And, from the expressions on their faces, they were definitely happy walking and playing in a winter wonderland.

Reflecting on the workshops, Senior Lecturer, Jill Magennis, said: “The successful planning and implementation of such high quality play learning experiences ensured that the workshops benefitted everyone involved – children, teachers, students and lecturers – and I am sure that every child left with a little bit of Christmas magic and joy!” That sentiment was endorsed by Fane Street P1 teacher, Miss Irwin, who commented that “the expressions of concentration and delight spoke volumes of how much the children enjoyed the activities.”

Join our PGCE students and Fane Street pupils as they journey on the Polar Express, meet the Gingerbread Family and enjoy a Winter Wonderland.
