Weekly Update

Last Friday, we welcomed Rev Nick to lead our collective worship.  He explained the symbolism of the Christingle and everyone joined in with a special song.  All pupils have made (or will be making) a Christingle to bring home.

With just a day until the first Nativity performance, rehearsals continued apace last week for pupils in Willow and Birch.  In Hazel Class, pupils have been learning how to carefully plan, conduct and observe an experiment to melt ice (with the forecast, this could be useful this week!).  Rowan Class continue to develop skills as writers, learning how speech can be used to convey information about character.

It has been great to see the first homemade Snow Globes arriving at school, currently decorating my office!  Please find the poster attached for your information as there is still plenty of time to take part.

In addition to the Nativity this week, a reminder that Thursday is Christmas Jumper Day. Come into school wearing a festive top with a suggested donation of £1 for Save the Children.  Please support the FONS Christmas event on Friday afterschool - for more information, please see their relaunched Facebook Page.

In response to feedback, I am glad to report that there is now a personalised phone message when you call the school with the option to report an absence or speak to the office.

Finally a polite reminder that in the interests of everyone's safety to drive slowly on the roads near the school and in the car park.

Have a good week.  Mr Caswell
