Southend Primary School’s pupils transformed into elves as they prepared goodie bags for members of the Tufty Club.
The pupils are missing the Tufty Club ladies from Southend Church, who had, until the Covid-19 pandemic, been going into the school once a month for three years to support children’s learning through project work.
They have helped children construct rainforests out of junk, read stories, created written characters and shared their own school experiences.
The children said: ‘We hope you enjoy our little goodie bags. Happy Christmas from the elves at Southend Primary.’
