We began our Christmas celebrations in style this week. Our annual Christmas carol service took place at St Mary’s Church on Monday with the children enjoying a re-telling of the Christmas story, performances from our steel band and choir and lots of carol singing. It was lovely to see so many parents there supporting their children even though consequently it was a bit of a squeeze.
Our wonderful Reception children gave two enchanting performances of ‘Our Christmas Story’ to their parents, families and friends. They all participated with enthusiasm showing off a wealth of singing and dancing talent.
We enjoyed a day of festivities yesterday with Christmas assemblies and a superb Christmas lunch prepared by Mrs Tyrell and her team. No mean feat to serve 469 children, staff and governors in one go!
We didn’t forget this term’s theme of thankfulness either as so many of our children and staff embraced our ‘Wear a Christmas Jumper day’ with £366 raised for Save the Children. Thank you for supporting this important charity.
Reception and Year 1 have also been enjoying their Christmas Forest School sessions this term. They have made Christmas decorations and loved toasting s’mores on the campfire! A big thank you to Mrs Flook for organising this brilliant event.
With still a week of school to go we have much to look forward to including performances of ‘The Nativity’ by years 1 and 2 and ‘Aladdin Trouble!’ by years 3, 4 and 5.
