Today we had a visit from 2 of our local Police officers. They came in to speak to us about their jobs and it was really interesting.
We saw the baton that they use.
We got to try on their handcuffs!
We even got to go in the police car - do you know how many children can fit in a police car at once?
All of us - 19!!!! Although this was when the car was parked!

We had our Christmas Lunch today with the Lunch Club. It was delicious!
Ian made a special effort and decorated his beard.

The primary 7's were invited to switch on the Christmas lights. We got our photos taken having a practice in the morning because the forecast was bad for night time. At night we ran outside and turned the lights on while everyone else watched from inside, then everyone went into the hall for mulled wine (for the adults),mince pies, shortbread and singing.
