Christmas Fayre

Once again we enjoyed a fabulous Christmas Fayre. Thank you to the PTA for organising the Fayre and ensuring it ran so smoothly. Thank you to everyone who came along to join in and enjoy the event. Well done to the children’s choir who as always sang so beautifully and for the entertaining adult choir who also put on a stunning performance for you all (and didn’t they look gorgeous too?)! If you enjoy singing you are welcome to join the adult choir every Thursday at 5.15. The raffle will be drawn on Monday. Kane in Year 6 won the guess the number of sweets in the jar prize of the jar of jelly beans.

Nursery Says Thank You

The Nursery children and staff would like to say thank you to all those who bought raffle tickets in the summer. The money raised was used to buy a CD player and headphones for their book corner.

Christmas Performances

We are all looking forward to our Christmas performances next Tuesday. Please make sure you collect your tickets and remember to bring them with you on Tuesday. The Nursery and Infant performance of Rapanzul begins at 1.15 and the Junior performance of The Tempest begins at 2.15.

Violin Performance

Our violin players performed to the whole school on Tuesday. There are a large number of children learning the violin at the moment which is wonderful. Their performance was excellent and I am sure has inspired others to learn to play this instrument.

No Guitar Lessons

Guitar lessons have finished for this term so there will not be a lesson on Wednesday. Lessons resume on January 4th.

On Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year 2 and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Year 6. Fabulous! Well done to both classes for excellent punctuality. The winners of the end of term prize of £25 are in Key Stage 1: Year 1 and Key Stage 2: Year 3. Bothe classes win £25 to spend as they wish. Congratulations and well done Year 1 and Year 3!

Sequins, Sparkle and Santa Look- a- Like

Next Friday, to celebrate the end of term everyone is invited, if they wish to dress up for the day. Our theme for the day is: sequins and sparkle or Santa look- a- like. Please remember to collect your child on time on the last day. There are no clubs or choir. The School will be closed at 3.30.

Lost Property, Pegs and PE Bags and lunch boxes

Please check the lost property boxes and remove all clothing, PE bags etc from pegs before the end of term. Please could you also remember to take home lunch boxes before or on the last day. I often sort through them and end up throwing several away as they have become rather mouldy and unpleasant. Not one of my favourite jobs!

Year 5 Swimming

Year 5 begin their swimming lessons at Prince Regent swimming pool on Monday 9th January.

Congratulations to…

Surranne in Year 2 who has achieved her first stripe in Karate. Well done Surranne!
