King's St Alban's

10 December

Christmas Trees galore.

With the beautiful Worcester Cathedral on our doorstep, the pupils from Nursery to Year 2 were delighted to take a stroll in the winter sunshine and to visit the Cathedral’s Christmas Tree Festival.

Stepping off College Green and into the Cloisters, the pupils were thrilled to discover numerous sparkling Christmas trees, all innovatively and individually designed and decorated by local schools, charities, businesses and other organisations. It was a wonderful sight, thoroughly enjoyed by all of the pupils and accompanying staff.

Pupils enthusiastically looked at each and every tree and were particularly delighted to find the King’s St Alban’s tree decorated with handmade felt decorations lovingly made by the Year 4 pupils. There was even an additional decoration on the tree … the Reception class elf has somehow sneaked his way in and was happily sitting in the tree, admiring all of the stunning ones around him!

Whilst most of the children were busy admiring the twinkling lights and being careful not to touch the delicate structures, Tiegan (Reception) was overjoyed to find her mummy’s tree – a rainbow of colours; Reception class thought it was the prettiest!

With over 80 different Christmas trees lining the cloisters as part of the Christmas Tree Festival, there is no doubting the popularity of the event, which attracts hundreds of visitors over the festive season. The Festival itself is open from 1st December through to 2nd January and is a definite must for young and old; please do book tickets to avoid disappointment.

The children returned to the classroom full of enthusiasm, having been impeccably behaved throughout the trip, a true credit to King’s St Alban’s -well done everyone! We can’t wait to visit again next year.
