Santa swapped his sleigh for a tractor as he arrived at a primary school - in the guise of “Farmer Christmas”.
He then handed out gifts to children at a celebration event, in a special link-up between Witnesham Primary School and the Otley campus of Easton and Otley College.
To help get the school into a festive spirit, a member of staff from Easton and Otley, John Attridge, took the role of Santa for the day.
