Improving a Christmas Story

I thought I was being kind and festive and wrote the children a Christmas story!  Unfortunately, it didn’t go down as well as I’d hoped. Apparently I’d made it tooooo boring (how rude I thought) and the children said they could do a better job!!! As much as it pains me to say, they did an amazing job at improving my story .

Writing cards to Bluebell Wood

Today the children learned how some families might not have the Christmas they deserve. But with the help of Bluevell Wood it can be made that little bit more special! So from class 9 we thank you for all your help over this festive season and all year through.  And to all we wish a very special Merry Christmas!!!

The Christmas Story

Last week the children visited one of our local churches to learn about the Christmas story.  They got to look at and explore different ways in wish this story can be retold and presented as well as enjoying a little bit of Christmas craft.

Showtime!! Costumes for Year 3/4 Nativity…


Today, your children should have taken home their character slips informing you all of what part they will be performing in our Nativity performance next Thursday (20th) at St Nicholas Church, 1.30pm.

If you wish, you may provide your own costume for their character however, we do have some costumes that we have set aside for certain people if they are needed.

Please see the list below for the different characters and what we ask as a basic requirement to ensure that all children doing that part are dressed the same. It will also show if we have a costume that we can provide or if you would need to provide this:
