Bath children go to school to enjoy snow and hot chocolate
While thousands of children had a day off school today, pupils at one were in their classrooms.
But youngsters at St Andrew’s School in Julian Road in Bath were far from glum, as they enjoyed hot chocolate, snowmen-making and singing songs.
The primary school had around 100 children in, with one teacher managing to reach it from Taunton and others walking in for up an hour.
Head Sue East said: “We’re having a lovely day.”

Parent Pete Rogers said his six-year-old son Max was “thrilled to bits” at his new-style school day.
“Once he realised he wouldn’t be doing normal lessons, he said ‘school’s the best.’
“I’m very impressed that the teachers got in. It’s great.”
Also at their desks were pupils at Monkton Combe School.
Day pupils made an effort to attend classes along with the school’s 240 boarders, and it has been possible to operate a near-normal timetable.
Principal Richard Backhouse said: "Pupils' learning has been able to continue today, and academic momentum is largely unchecked thanks to the many staff who walked into school, or drove on roads that were safe. Pupils have, of course, also enjoyed the snow."
