Dear Parents and Friends

This week has been a truly amazing example of how talented your children are, with the wonderful Christmas Show and Carol Service performed by all the pupils. The Foundation Stage children certainly provided the cute factor at the start of our afternoon performance and through sheer hard work the children produced yet another spectacular show. This year was so special as we were able to hold the performance in our own new school hall. It was wonderful to be able to open the school doors to all our parents and really put the Christmas atmosphere into the school. Both performances were very well attended and many thanks must go to all those who put their time and energy into all of the preparations. Thanks to the PTFA for hosting refreshments at both performances and the whole teaching team who spent time and energy in helping the children to learn their parts and perform to their best on the day.

Thank you for all your support this term and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and every happiness and health for the New Year. Pupils return to school on Tuesday 8th January 2019!

Many thank to everyone that was involved in running and organising the Christmas fair, clearly it was successful as we raised £800 towards school funds. Special thanks to year 6 for doing such great games and stalls, enjoyed by everyone. It takes a bit or organising to run these events but it was really appreciated with all the new help at the end of the fair with the clearing up. We have raised over £1400 this term so thanks to all the helper and spenders. New event – Ground Force Day 19th January a community event to help tidy school grounds combined with table top sale and bacon butties.
