Christmas Nativities

What an amazing December we have had, each year group performed fantastic retellings of the Christmas story for their parents, carers and friends. All of the shows were very successful and well attended. We would like to say a big Thank you to all the parents and families who gave their support. It was a real pleasure seeing you all in the audience enjoying the show while celebrating the children’s talent. The staff in each year group clearly worked really hard to put together these memorable performances. Nursery started off the proceedings and dazzled us with their Nursery Nativity complimented by a range of festive songs. Year 1 wowed us with their ‘Everyone Loves A Baby’ Christmas story

Singing club sing to local care homes

The children of our Singing Club have performed carols and Christmas songs at four events this year. Firstly, they entertained visitors to the school’s Christmas Fair. They have then sung at three local homes, Centenary Place, Boulevard Lodge and Whittingham House. On all occasions the children sang with great enthusiasm and their performance was enjoyed by all.

Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day

What a brilliant Christmas Jumper day we have had! Children and Staff all over the school have supported the Save the Children charity by wearing festive Christmas themed clothing! Thank you for all your kind donations, we really enjoyed getting dressed up and Christmassy to support this worthy cause.

Reception Christmas Craft Day

The Reception children had a lovely Christmas Craft Day on Thursday. The children were joined by their grown-ups to make an exciting assortment of Christmas decorations. The children and grown-ups enjoyed making angels, shiny baubles, cotton wool snowmen, colourful crackers and wax resist Christmas pictures. The children had a wonderful time and loved spending time with their parents and carers. It also looked like the parents enjoyed themselves as well! Thank you to everyone who joined us.

Cliff’s Pavilion Drama and Dance Workshop

As part of our topic on Lights and Sounds all the Reception children took part in a drama and dance workshop by the Cliff’s Pavilion. The children were taught how to warm up their voices, mouths and tongues like actors so they can project their voices clearly on stage. The children then practised making different firework noises and making firework shapes with their bodies. We all looked out for the best impression of a firework! To finish the workshop, the children were taught a short dance routine to music. We all had lots of fun and learnt lots about drama and dance.

Christmas Fair 2019

We enjoyed a very busy Infant Christmas Fair on Wednesday 27th November 2019. Each class created their own merchandise to sell, it was a very well attended event. This year had the added bonus of both the Infant Hall and the Junior Hall as a joint venue, which meant that families could spread out and make the most of all the stalls during the evening. There was a lovely family Christmas feel on the day. There were items to decorate your home to create a Christmas atmosphere: A range of Christmas decorations Gift labels Punch balloons General Christmas Sale There were lovely things to eat and drink like; Christmas themed biscuits and cakes Sausage rolls Hot chocolate, teas and coffee Sweet ba
