We had our Year 1 Christingle Service yesterday where the children and Anne Quinn from the Church of St Peter and St Paul told the Christmas story beautifully. They sang and said prayers and when the children’s Christingle candles had been lit and the hall lights were dimmed there were gasps as the scene was breath taking. The staff did an amazing job and the children performed their very best and with confidence.
The children were treated to a surprise performance of Dick Whittington on Thursday, which they said was amazing. Thank you to the Big Bubble Productions Company for being so much fun.

We are seeing several children with earrings, giant bows and coloured hair at the moment. Can we please ask that they save these special looks for the weekends and holidays so that we have a consistent approach in school.
Please do not park blocking access to roads and think about the dangers for our children. A large white van was parked on the corner of Bridgewater Drive and Ellis Road again this morning and caused a near accident, as the view for oncoming vehicles was obstructed. We will ask the police to patrol the area to ensure we are all parking as safely as possible.
Science Competition Winners
Good luck to our two science competition winners who will be asking their questions at the Open University for ‘Moon Night’ tonight.
The Friends of Bridgewater are busily preparing for tonight’s Christmas Fair after school – we can’t wait!
Take a look at our website, which has a new look with lots of lovely pictures of the children.
