Christmas Catastrophe

Young festive detectives were sent on a hunt looking for Santa clues after Father Christmas ‘crashed’ into the school playground.

Pupils arrived at Gunthorpe Primary School to a real seasonal surprise – with Santa’s sleigh left in the school yard, along with three of his reindeer.

The children were told Father Christmas had crash landed overnight- and pupils were set tasks of investigating what had happened, and to try and find where Santa had gone.

A ‘crime scene’ was set up around the sleigh, while other clues were left around the school, including presents on the roof, and a snowy outline of Santa on one of the walls, where the crash has taken place.

After the investigations took place, budding young journalists wrote a newspaper report about the crash and others produced videos, posters and artwork.
