Festive Fun

At the end of last week, we were treated to a delicious Christmas dinner which was enjoyed by all of our festively dressed children and staff. The hall was filled with Christmas music and the joyful sounds of chatting and laughing. We were joined virtually by Revd Graham for a Christingle Service and each class has had a fun filled Christmas party. Also this week, Year R have been busy making presents to take home for their loved ones, Year 1/2 enjoyed designing and making cards, Year 3/4 have been reflecting on Angels and Year 5/6 have been comparing this half term’s whole class reading texts. We all wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
