Christmas Postbox

If your child would like to write Christmas cards to their friends and teachers, please send them into school by Tuesday each week.  There will be a postbox in each classroom. The cards will stay in quarantine and we will give them out on Fridays.  Please do not send in cards after Tuesday each week. Please write names on the envelopes clearly. Thank you!

The Nativity Story

We will share the bible story of Jesus birth with all the children.  Reception class will be retelling it on Tapestry for their parents to see.

The staff will be making their rooms look very festive with trees and tinsel in all the rooms.  We also look forward to our huge real tree outside, thanks to the Parish Council.
