Notices and Reminders

Top Table

This week the lunchtime supervisors chose Billy, Ellis, Leo VR, Mila, Henry MC and Nola to have their lunch on the Top Table with Mrs Crozier and Mrs Sargeant. Well done to those children for showing kindness, fair play and lovely manners every day.

Early Years Nativities

Our youngest children have made us and their families extremely proud this week, with their fabulous outdoor Nativity shows. We definitely spotted some little stars of the future and the songs, words and actions were performed beautifully by all. Well done to everyone who made these events possible. 

Films of each show will be available once they have been edited and you will be able to view these using your child's Teams account. Details of how to access them will be sent out in a ParentMail before the end of term.

Christmas Events

The sight of Mrs Claus, an elf and two real live reindeer on the bottom playground on Monday morning was something rather special. This was the VSA's treat for the Nursery children, who didn't go to the pantomime last week. However, every child in the school had a reindeer encounter and was able to stroke one of these beautiful, gentle creatures.

Every class had a visit from Father Christmas on Thursday morning and the children were able to ask him all sorts of questions, as well as let him know what they are hoping for on Christmas day. Thanks to the VSA for organising this. 

Our wonderful cooks, Barbara and Nikki, prepared a delicious Christmas lunch for us on Thursday and we all gathered in the hall to enjoy it. 

On Friday, members of the VSA organised Christmas games in the hall, which every child took part in. 

Carol Service at St Peter's Church - Monday 20 December 2:15pm

We hope parents will be able to join us on Monday for our Carol Service. The current guidance for churches is that visitors must wear a face covering (unless exempt). We also ask that no more than two adults per family attend and that you take a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test on Monday morning. At the end of the service we will return to school and dismiss the children safely in the usual way. If the guidance changes before Monday afternoon we will, of course, update you. 

Book bags

These are not needed next week. If you still have school reading books at home after today's deadline for returning them, please send them in on Monday or Tuesday.
