To celebrate the end of a school year, the children are having a fancy dress party. Everyone has come dressed up, including the adults!
In one room, there is a game of pass-the-parcel. An older boy, dressed as a sailor, provides the music on his accordion. He stands in the doorway between classrooms, so that the children in the other room can hear the music too.
In the other room, there's a game of musical chairs.
What is a lamb doing, playing musical chairs?
Oh! It's Mary, and everywhere that Mary goes, the lamb goes too.
Back in the other room, the first and second layers of paper have come off the parcel, and around it goes ...
Oh dear! Clown's big feet have tripped up on the lamb's lead! Who will be able to get up first and join in again?
Mary is more concerned about her lamb, so clown is still in the game.
That little bride looks very determined, doesn't she?
It's fun ripping paper off the parcel, and everyone is getting a turn ...
Only five children are left playing musical chairs .... Woops, one little girl sat down on the floor, instead of a seat! Four left now ....
The parcel is getting smaller, but still there are more layers ... Who will find the last layer?
Only two chairs left ..... around they go, and then Mr Tim takes away one chair. Now only one is left - who will sit down first when the music stops, the bride or Little Red Riding Hood?
We've reached the final layer of paper in the parcel, and the chimney sweep unwraps it - it's a mouth organ! He is very happy.
And the game of musical chairs has ended too, with Red Riding Hood getting to the chair first!
Phew! Time for the children who played Musical Chairs to play something quieter - they go into the other room, for a game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Mrs Thomas (dressed as a queen) gives each child a tail, and then a mother dressed as a maid ties on the blindfold ... and takes it off again, so they can see how they did ..
Oh dear! That tail is at the right height, but it's not really on the donkey, is it?
Sally the painter gets her tail closer ...
Clown makes the children laugh - his tail is right in the middle of the donkey's belly!
So Sally is the winner - her prize is a tiny, bouncy rubber ball.
In the other room, the children have been playing Blind Man's Bluff:
Then it's time for judging the best fancy dress costumes.
The couples join up, and the children who brought accessories for their costumes pick them up again. Mary, of course, has had her lamb with her all evening!
There are prizes for the couple with the best costumes, the best occupational costume, the best folk costume, the best fairy tale character, the best nursery rhyme character, the best historical costume, the boy with the best costume, the girl with the best costume, the scariest costume, the sweetest costume, and the funniest costume.
Who do you think should win each prize?
Are there any categories I've forgotten?
