Well done to all our Stars of the Week and those children who have completed commendation cards this week.
At our end of term Christmas party, the whole school enjoyed fun and games including Pass the Parcel, Musical Chairs, Musical statues and Musical Bumps.
What a surprise to discover Father Christmas had made an early delivery of lovely presents under our Christmas tree!
We looked at the toilet twinning project and how important it was to have good sanitation in place in order to stop people from becoming ill. The children realised that this has a huge impact on children’s lives and how being healthy meant they were able to attend school and access an education.
Children thought that it wasn’t fair that parents had to choose between paying medical bills or or school fees. They were intrigued by some of the simple toilet huts that were being constructed in villages and how they were able to use materials available to them.
We have been busy making Christingles from oranges for our church service.
The pupils have been able to say what each element represents.
The orange represents the world, which God made, the candle is the light of Christ, the red ribbon represents the blood of Christ, the cocktail sticks represent the four seasons and the sweets all the good things that God gives to us.
In our church service, we also celebrated pupils’ achievements in Reading, Writing, Maths and Sports.
Certificates were also given to pupils who continually display our school values.
Well done to all of our pupils who have worked so hard this year.
The Christmas festivities are well under way with glittery card making, Christmas card deliveries and a fantastic lunch made by our chef Jess. A huge thank you to Jess who cooks us tasty, nutritious food daily. The food was delicious and of course, no Christmas meal is complete without festive hats too!
In collective worship this week, Anne-Marie from the ICE Team told us about the significance of the Christmas tree. We were told about the meaning of the star on top and that it reminds us of the star of Bethlehem. We also found out about the meaning of the lights – to represent the light of GOD and that the baubles represent the gifts that Jesus was given.
We enjoyed seeing one of our classmates becoming the Christmas tree!
