Value – Peace | Menu – Week 2


Firstly I would like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who joined us for the Christmas Fayre. We look forward to announcing thegrand total next week. There are still many unclaimed prizes at the school office. We will keep the prizes for one calender month (9th January 2017) when, thereafter, they will be inclu ded into the next school prize draw. If you have the winning ticket please come and claim your prize.
It has been another action packed week! Year 3 visited Holy Trinity to ‘Experience Christmas’. This is something that the children really enjoy with the staff of Holy Trinity. Reception have had a lovely time at Smart Trees in Evesham as have Year 2 at the Black Country museum.

Year 5 have also enjoyed a wonderful experience at Skill Zone. The Carol Service at the Abbey was delightful. The children read their readings clearly and sang sweetly. Which is perhaps more than could be said for the staff chorus of ‘I wish it could be Christmas’ it was all good seasonal fun which the children appreciated.
The early years corridors were full of shepherds, kings, twinkling stars and even a donkey as the Nativity dress rehearsal got under way. The children and staff have achieved a great deal this autumn term and deserve a well earned rest this Christmas.
My thanks and those of the Governors go to all our staff in acknowledgement of their work. (cleaning staff, kitchen staff, lunchtime supervisors, teaching assistants, teachers, support staff.) I wish you all a happy Christmas and pray for a peaceful New Year, here and around the world.
