It has been a very busy last week of term! On Monday we were treated to a concert by our music pupils from Year 5 and 6. We enjoyed listening to singers, pianists , guitarists and string players. Well done to everyone who took part and a special thank you to Mrs Moutoussi, Mrs Martin, Mrs Guerin and Mr Nicola for preparing and supporting the children.
On Tuesday the whole school enjoyed the production of The Sleeping Beauty at the Wyllyotts Theatre. The children had a fabulous time even though there were some scary parts. It was wonderful to be together as a school enjoying the spectacle.
Our choir have been in action this week bringing joy to the local community. They sang to the residents of Greenhills Care Home yesterday and on Tuesday brought smiles to the office workers at Canada life. Well done children! You sang like angels!
Wednesday brought a fantastic Christmas lunch and talent show. Well done to Thomas and Ellis in Year 2 who came in first place with their comedy act; your jokes were great!
Today we celebrated the fourth Sunday of Advent, lighting the 4th candle on our Advent wreath. Baby Benjamin ( Anna in Year 1’s brother) took the starring role as Jesus as we reflected on the nativity story.
On behalf of all the staff, I would like to thank you for all your very generous Christmas gifts. It is wonderful to know that we are supported by such an active parent body.
I wish you all a very happy and holy Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
