News

The children have embraced this Christmas week in all good spirit. The relocation of our Carol Service to Holy Trinity Church on Wednesday started our celebrations. With little to no time to rehearse the children read and sang triumphantly. How brave was our soloist Rebecca Burrows! The service ended with the younger children using the sign language of Makaton to ‘Silent Night’ which was really special. Thank you parents for accommodating the change of day and venue. These challenges are sent to try us.

Thursday morning the KS1 parents and relatives were treated to the Nativity play ‘A Little Bird Told Me’ led by the Reception classes. Remembering that most of the Reception class children are still only 4 years old they owned the stage! Year 1 & 2 accompanied the story by singing a number of chirpy festive songs.

 

Christmas Message

Our children are very fortunate to be cared for by so many people; parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties, teachers, teaching assistants, dinner ladies, office staff, governors, etc. They talk about what Father Christmas will be bringing them and who they will be visiting over the holiday. But when I ask them what would they prefer at Christmas, a toy or family? They all responded unanimously with family. So take heart that your children see you as the true gifts of Christmas. Enjoy this time, myself and the staff wish you all a peaceful New Year.

Finally please remember that Monday 7th January 2019 is an INSET day and the children are due back on Tuesday 8th January 2019.
