PUPILS at Badshot Lea Village Infant School were visited by their grandparents over the course of three days for afternoon tea.

The relatives were invited to the school from February 13-15 to enjoy cakes, biscuits, sandwiches and, of course, a cup of tea.

Students also treated their grandparents to a sing-song.

The event was a multi-generational mingle, with children, teachers and grandparents enjoying a social afternoon together in the school.

A highlight of the day for one of the children was when their grandmother flew down from Scotland as a surprise.

Gemma Ball, headteacher, said: “The grandparents’ tea was organised to say a big thank you to the many grandparents who help out and support their grandchildren but rarely get a chance to come in to school and see what goes on.

“It was a wonderful afternoon and we were so pleased that so many grandparents were able to attend and spend a small amount of time with their grandchildren in school. We look forward to repeating in future.”
