A Frizington School has been busy getting ready for Christmas, by making cards, gifts, hats, food and pictures.

Arlecdon Primary School had an afternoon of Christmas crafts followed by a Christmas fayre for pupils and their families on December 11.

All the children had a chance to get creative for the fayre.

Office Manager Sarah Barry said: "All the classes made hats to wear for Christmas dinner which we had before the craft afternoon.

The parents were invited in to make Christmas crafts with the children, for fun."

Children tried their hand at yule log decorating, Christmas bauble making, glass jar decorating, Gingerman decorating, reindeer food making and Christmas picture colouring and drawing.

The PTA runs the schools annual Christmas fayre which raises funds for the school.

On sale were cakes, a teddy tombola, chocolate tombola, games such as hook a cracker and knock an elf of the shelf to win prizes.

Children could choose from having their faces painted or glitter tattoos and even Santa made a visit, setting up a grotto for visits and presents.

The fayre raised over £440 for school funds.

Sarah added: "The PTA did brilliantly and there was a lot of support from families to help run, set up and then attend and spend at the fair."
