Christmas Thank you
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making the last week in school before Christmas a festive and happy one for the children. This week we have all enjoyed our parties and a delicious Christmas lunch yesterday. A special thank you to Paula our cook for the wonderful food.
Party Food – thank you for your support with our party food and Santa visit this week. We had lots of fun and the children received exciting gifts from Santa. Please collect your cake boxes from the classes.
Thank you to Friends of the School and everyone who donated and bought raffle tickets – a grand total of £655.25 was raised for School Funds
Giving to others at Christmas
Thank you also to Friends of the School who have helped us to organise our ‘reverse’ Advent Calendar. A small group of children have delivered our hamper to the Food Bank in Richmond this morning.
Cloakroom tidy for the holidays
We have sent home all our cloakroom items for cleaning and sorting over the holidays. The indoor shoes which the children need to wear to keep our carpeted classrooms clean, have also been sent home. This makes it possible for the cloakroom areas to be thoroughly cleaned. If your child’s indoor shoes still fit, you will simply need to return them in January.
Please bring your PE kit on the first day back to school and keep it in school for the week. Classes 3 and 4 will have outdoor PE in January so please bring warm tracksuit trousers in your PE kit.
We expect to start these in the week beginning Monday 16th January and a new Club list and details of clubs on offer will be available when we return in January.
Instrumental lessons for Class 3 and violin, cello, piano and flute
All our instrumental lessons will resume in the week beginning 9th January.
St Mary’s Church Crib Service 1pm on Christmas Eve
Everyone is welcome at this child friendly Christmas service. Children are invited to come dressed as a shepherd, angel or animal. Our posada bags will finish their journey at this special service.
Carol Service in Church today 2pm
We are all looking forward to our school Carol Service in Church this afternoon and early finish at 3pm.
On behalf of all the staff I would like to thank you and the children for their cards and gifts and wish you and your families a very happy Christmas and New Year.
We return to school after the holidays on Wednesday 4th January 2017.
