At the Year 1 Christingle service 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 gasp, as the scene was breath taking. The staff did an amazing job and the children performed their very best and with confidence.
The Year 1 children and families raised an amazing £160 for The Children’s Society at their Christingle.
The Early Years production of ‘Whoopsie Daisy Angel’ and Years 2’s production of ‘Hey Ewe’, were both wonderful performances, where they retold the Christmas message with clarity, humour and lovely singing.
The Nursery performance in the picture below was adorable. The staff made a film of the children acting the nativity alongside them singing with great enthusiasm. We also got to see the outtakes and now I cannot stop smiling! Well done to all the children, school staff and families who will be singing the songs for a long while to come.
Jason, Christine and the team produced the most delicious Christmas dinner this week and it was lovely to see the staff enjoying their dinner with the children. I have to say, thank you to the children in Year 5 who have been helping in the hall and especially Jerome, who looked after me very well collecting my plate and bringing my Christmas pudding; I felt very spoilt. We have such lovely caring children!
All the children and staff looked festive in their Christmas jumpers on Friday and have donated generously to the ‘Save the Children’ charity, an excellent cause supporting children not only here but also around the world. The total is in … £360.59! Well done.
