I am delighted to say that the Christmas Hamper was won by the Mauger family, congratulations and enjoy!
Throughout this week each class has led their own Christmas Performance in church.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 each performed their own nativity. Year 3 and Year 4 retold the Christmas story. Year 5 and Year 6 shared a lovely explanation of Christmas around the world. Each performance included singing some wonderful songs! I was so proud of all our children and thank you once agin for all your continued support.
Thank you to everyone who was able to come and watch.
Last week, as a school we completed 2,334 laps of the playground, which means we ran 155.6 miles! So not only did we run far enough to reach the London Eye, we also had miles left over to race around the streets of London!
We completed our Santa Dash Run in order to raise money for Kemp Hospice and so far we have raised £230, so please continue to dig deep and donate to the following Just Giving Page. Let's see if we can get to £300 just in time for Christmas!
The children were challenged to create their own 'Soaper Hero' for a national competition. Key Stage 1 had to draw their design, and Key Stage 2 had to draw their design and create their own memorable slogan.
Each Key Stage's entries were judged and we have some school winners - these will then be entered into the national competition to see if anyone wins overall.
Well done to everyone who took part, it was lovely to see so much creativity and imagination!
This half term, we have been thinking about the virtues: Learned and Wise and how we can show these in our lives. The following children were nominated by their class and their teachers to receive a virtues certificate:
|Year Group||Pupil Nomination||Teacher Nomination|
The Memory Tree will be erected in Church on the morning of December 13th. If you have purchased a memory globe, you are invited to come to Church from 13th-16th of December to place it on the tree prior to the blessing at 3.45pm on the 16th December.
You are warmly invited to the Parish hall after the blessing for refreshments and mince pies.
I would like to say a special thank you to TAPP who arranged for each year group to visit Father Christmas yesterday. As you can see from the photographs everyone had a fantastic time.
They also organised a successful sale of reindeer food, popcorn and hot chocolate today.
We would like to thank TAPP for all of their hard work and commitment to fundraising this year.
