 A New Arrival.

We had a visit from an Elf this week and the children voted to call him 'Bubblegum.' He is staying in Severn Class until Christmas but flies back to the North Pole every night to pass messages on to Santa. He must have been very hungry when he arrived back because he ate some crackers and left a bit of a mess!!
