Dear Parents and Carers,
It is hard to believe that there are only three weeks of this term left. The sense of anticipation and excitement around school is increasing as the children are beginning to prepare for some of the events and activities coming up during the build up to Christmas. Please do check the diary dates section of ‘The Buzz’ to ensure that you do not miss out on any of the things that are happening.
A few weeks ago, we shared with you the work that the children had done about the ‘Dragon Tree’ to contribute to the display in the library. We have really enjoyed collaborating with our local library and would like to express our thanks and gratitude for their lovely gift to the school of a book of poetry – ‘I Am The Seed That Grew The Tree’.
Next week sees the start of the Christmas Tree Festival, there is a carol service to open it at the Methodist Church at 3.30pm on Thursday 5th December, we have a record number of children singing in the choir to lead the singing for this. Mrs Jones and Mrs Aram have worked very hard with the choir learning the songs and it would be lovely to see as many of you there as possible to support them.
On Wednesday 11th December we have our Christingle Service; this will be in church at 8.40am all parents, family and friends are welcome to join us. We will be making Christingles with the children during the morning on Tuesday 10th December and would like to invite parents to come in to help the children make them immediately after drop off in the morning from 8.30am onwards. We would be grateful if you could provide your child with an orange to make their Christingle, they will bring it home after the service. The school will provide all of the other materials that are needed. It would be helpful if the children could bring in their orange on Monday ready for the activity on Tuesday. Please do not worry if your child is not able to bring in an orange, the school will have some spare ones to make sure that everyone is included.
Thank you to everyone for your donations of bottles and chocolate as part of the Mufti Days ready for the Christmas Fair. Do please support the school by coming along to the event next Friday 6th December. The BSA has put in a huge amount of work, their support and generosity makes a huge difference to the school and all contributions of help are appreciated.
When you open the first window on the Advent Calendar this weekend, remember: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Aesop.
Best wishes – Mrs Fox
