Pupil Alcee Graffeo, aged five, was among those to see the reindeer.

She said: “It nearly made me cry because they were too cute.

“I haven’t seen a real reindeer before, they are really soft and just like on Christmas films.

“I had my picture taken with a reindeer and elf.

“I love reindeers because they bring you presents, can fly and they know Santa.

“They are one of my favourite animals – after dogs.”
