Merry Christmas and Thank you!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

What a wonderful term it’s been! From finding Ned the Ted, making our Jackson Pollock canvases to learning all about Guy Fawkes and everything in between.

We’ve had many fun festive activities this half term too! We performed our ‘Wriggly Nativity’ to you and we were very impressed with your dance moves. The children all performed beautifully and I was incredibly proud of them. In addition, we had the amazing Christmas trail at the Baptist Church with Reverend Clark. Rose was Mary, Filip was Joseph and Maxwell RW was Angel Gabriel! We learnt that Myrrh is used for embalming bodies after death and it was given to Jesus as a gift for his future. In assembly each day, we have been doing our around the world advent calendar and I would like to say a massive well done to all the children who read and helped open the calendar. You were brilliant! We had the Christmas lunch yesterday and it was absolutely delicious. The children all made their own placecards. We also had the Year 1 party. We played musical chairs, statues, sleeping lions (the teacher’s personal favourite) and the colour game. All of this fun learning was packed into just one term. Imagine all the wonderful things your children will be doing next year in 2020. Very exciting!

Just a quick but very important message: I left a note on the classroom door, but I know some of you won’t get to see it and I want to make sure I thank all of you. I have copied the note below:

Mrs Fox and I just wanted to say a HUGE big thank you for our extremely generous vouchers. I will have a lovely time spending them. In addition, thank you very much for the other gifts I received, they are gorgeous. The gift and vouchers are all really really appreciated. Thank you all for a wonderful Autumn Term.

Mrs Wildman and Mrs Penketh also say a huge big thank you for their gifts!
Merry Christmas and thank you so much.

P.S. I apologise for the glitter in advance, you’ll understand what I mean when you open your gift! Hehe!

P.P.S There is no Guided Reading or Maths Cards on the first week back (Week Beginning: 6th January).

Enjoy your Christmas break. See you in 2020!

Warmest wishes and celebrations,

Miss Upton

The whole school in one of our Advent Calendar assemblies – (Number 19: Ethiopia). We are all sitting in a circle and Year 5 and 6 were our choir who sit in the outer circle and gave us a taster of the Christmas Carol concert.
The children on the Christmas Trail at the Baptist Church. One of my favourite activities!
All the children enjoying their Christmas dinner! The whole school did a huge Mexican wave! #festivefun
