Sending Christmas Wishes to Europe!

France, Belgium, Wales, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Croatia and many more European countries…here we come!

It’s destination Europe, as our Christmas decorations for the European Christmas Decoration Exchange Programme, are ready for posting. The children really enjoyed bringing in their own resources and designing their own decoration on a local area theme. We can’t wait to start receiving parcels from all over Europe, learning about the countries they are from.

Christmas decoration exchange

This year, Harton Primary have been given the opportunity to exchange hand made Christmas decorations with other international schools. The children made their decorations, along with a card from each class. These decorations will hopefully be sent off to various countries next Wednesday, such as Italy, Spain, and Croatia to name but a few.

Children from the paired schools will send us a Christmas decoration too! We look forward to using these to decorate our trees (which will be arriving at the end of November!)


Here are some examples of the decorations made in Y6J

European Christmas Decoration Exchange

We have been busy designing and making our own Christmas Decorations.  The decorations had to have a regional theme.

The winning entry in 5W was Ethan.  He included a picture of Marsden Rock and added real sand to decorate his Christmas bauble!  Ethan’s decoration will be sent to our partner school in Portugal.  We are looking forward to receiving a decoration in return and finding out about the school it came from!
