Christmas dinner gets crazy

Yesterday was a blur of festive fun, and also the most important date of the season – Christmas dinner day. We offered a choice of turkey or our famous cheese quiche with all the Christmas trimmings (including Brussels sprouts, yum!) and our kitchen crew gave us all a huge surprise…

Have you ever been served dinner by a Christmas cracker?

It was a fantastic meal, and we all enjoyed it very much. Thank you Miss Carroll and your elves! Thumbs up from the school staff!

The staff all enjoyed their Christmas dinner too!

Countdown to Christmas!

It’s Monday 19th December, so we have 2 more school days until the Christmas holidays and it’s only 5 until Christmas Day!

Today is quite quiet on the celebration front, we’ll be festive again tomorrow. This afternoon, our learning mentor Mrs Kelly will be tallying the figures and letting the classes know who’s been Green All Term as those children will have their Good To Be Green reward session tomorrow morning.

If your child would like to come to school in a Christmas jumper or other festive clothes, they’re very welcome to on Tuesday 20th December.

We have a festive craft morning for parents of Year 1 – 6 from 9:15am to 10:15am in classrooms on Tuesday, so please pop in to that if you get the chance. If your child has won the Green All Term award, you can accompany them to the reward instead.

We’re also looking forward to Christmas Dinner on Tuesday, and then the children will have parties in classrooms in the afternoon. I expect there to be a ridiculous amount of fun!

On Wednesday 21st December, we’re wearing uniform as usual, and will be welcoming Pyramid Productions to school with their pantomime “Peter Pan”. All children in school will be watching the show.

School ends at 3:15pm on Wednesday 21st December 2016. We have a teacher training day in January so school starts for pupils on Wednesday 4th January 2017 at 8:50am.
