This morning an aeroplane came to visit us at school!
It was all part of an exciting launch for the MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) Advent Calendar, called Advent Adventure.
A team from MAF delivered an inspiring assembly to introduce pupils to the work of this charity in supporting isolated communities all over the world. We then went outside to discover that one of the MAF aircraft had landed on the playground!
News had spread quickly as Meridian TV and the KM newspaper arrived to find out what was going on. They captured the adventure and interviewed some of the children and Miss Hooper, so do look out for a report on Meridian Tonight and in next week’s KM newspaper.
We also had a celebrity guest, Gemma Hunt from CBeebies, who chatted to the children and signed many of their advent calendars.
Each child has been given an advent calendar. A letter explaining all about the activities you can do with your children throughout advent can be found here: https://www.maf-uk.org/maf-christmas-advent-adventure-schools
What an exciting day!
