Dear Parents and Carers
This week has had a real Christmassy feel to it with our two Nativity Performances and our Christmas Fayre which included a visit from Father Christmas.
Well done to all the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 for their wonderful performance of their nativity. The children sang beautifully and helped to remind us about the true story of Christmas. Many thanks to all the parents and carers who came along to support the children.
Today we held our Christmas Fayre which was very well-supported despite the freezing cold conditions. Many thanks to everyone for the donations leading up to the fayre and for joining us on the day.
The Christmas Fayre would not have been such a success if it wasn’t for the people who help to organise and run the event. A great deal of work is done by only a few. A great big thank you to all for the tremendous work that is done for the good of all the children.
We have a number of unclaimed raffle prizes for which we will contact the winners to arrange collection next week.
Next week on Thursday 15th December at 6:00p.m in St Simon’s Church we are holding our Key Stage 2 Carol Service.
This is the first time we have held this event in the evening so we hope that as many children as possible attend. It promises to be a marvellous event as our singing at St Simon’s is a real strength of the school.
On Wednesday 14th December is school Christmas Dinner Day the children are encouraged to wear their Christmas Jumpers on this day.
End of Term Mass
On Friday 16th December at 9:30a.m at St Simon’s Church we are joining Fr Hans for the celebration of our End of Term Mass. All are very welcome to attend.
On Friday 16th December we are holding our Christmas Parties. The children are asked to bring in their own plate of party food to eat- the school will provide the drinks and the party games! A great time will be had by all.
As a reward for all their hard work the children can wear their own clothes on this day.
Farewell Mrs Chapman
Mrs Chapman our Early Years Leader will be leaving us at the end of this term to take up a position in a new school in January.
I would like to thank Mrs Chapman for all the hard work she has done for the children of the school and wish her the very best in the future and in her new role.
From January Mrs Macdonald and Mrs Ling will be teaching reception class until February when Mrs Morrison returns from maternity. Mrs Morrison will then work alongside Mrs Macdonald teaching in reception class.
With best wishes
