Pre-Prep Adventures #7 – Thursday 17th December 2015 – Ballard School

December 17, 2015

On Tuesday 15th December 2015, after the school had closed for the Christmas holidays, the Ballard Butterflies came out to play!

Our new group

Ballard Butterflies is our new group for one to four year olds. Accompanied by an adult, children can come and play, explore, create, dance, sing, listen to a story and much more.

Our first session was a two hour event – A Celebration of Christmas – and was held in our Pre-Prep department.

The event was well attended by a mixture of current Ballard pupils, staff children (and grandchildren) and members of the local communities around New Milton.

Teachers help

Mrs Chapman and Mrs Edwards led the morning’s dance and craft slots, with a chance for a healthy selection of snacks in between. Mr Reid came to join in for the break and also came to help clear up the craft tables at the end.

Every child who came was given a present from under the Christmas Tree and those who listened to the story at the end were captivated.

Looking to January – our next session

A big thank you to all who made the first Ballard Butterflies a success. The next Ballard Butterflies session will be a fortnightly hour and a quarter – 1.45pm-3pm, £5 per child, starting on Tuesday 12th January 2016.
