Happy Christmas!

Wow! We are at the end of an incredibly busy term and what an ending it has been! We have enjoyed so many wonderful events and it has been fantastic to share them with all our friends and families.

Firstly, thank you to our FOSPS for arranging an amazing Christmas Fair. There were so many wonderful stalls to browse and the Fair raised a record-breaking £826 so thank you to everyone who supported the Fair too!

The Reception to Year 3 children put on another fantastic Nativity – ‘It’s Christmas!’. Their singing, dancing and enthusiasm were contagious and it really gave the start of December a Christmassy feel! Thank you to all those who came and watched the performances and, as ever, a big thank you to staff for all their hard work in putting the production together, especially Mrs Keeble whose table dancing is becoming a Christmas tradition in its own right!

It was lovely to see so many parents at our annual Christmas Decoration morning – the children really enjoyed creating their crafts so thank you for your help.

The whole school enjoyed wearing their Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children. On the same day, Mrs Snelling cooked an amazing Christmas lunch for the whole school. It was so lovely to eat together and thank all of the adults who help us at lunchtime every day.

The FOSPS organised a delicious party lunch for us, made complete by a visit from Santa who had a gift for all of the children!

Children from Jupiter class went to the Baptist Church to sing for members of the local community after they had enjoyed a festive lunch. The children sung beautifully and we were really welcomed by all those at the Church.

Our trip to the pantomime in Norwich was so much fun! This pantomime was probably the loudest yet and, as always, the children represented the school brilliantly.

One of my favourite Christmas traditions is our Christingle Service. During the morning, all the children worked with Mrs Deatker (and some extra adult helpers!) to create their own Christingle. In the afternoon, we walked down to the Church for our service. We enjoyed music from Year 3 and 4 (playing ukulele) and Year 5 and 6 (playing their brass instruments) before learning about the symbolism of the Christingle. The congregation joined together to sing Away in the Manger whilst the children held their lit Christingles in a truly beautiful and festive moment.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support and to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to seeing you all in 2019!
