Carol Service 2013

This morning, we walked to St. Mary’s Church to join the school in our traditional annual Carol Service. We listened to Readings and Poems and joined in with singing Carols and Christmas Songs. Some of the children acted out the Nativity story as the service progressed. It was lovely to see so many parents joining […]


Christmas Class Parties

On Thursday we enjoyed our Christmas Parties. We played games such as ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Pin the Nose on Rudolf’ in our classrooms. We were able to play more noisy games in the hall such as ‘Musical Statues’ and ‘Treasure Islands’, before we could munch on party food and watch a DVD. Fun, Fun, […]

We made our own ‘healthy sandwich’ and were able to ‘test’ it out at our class Christmas Party! Mrs Green was very impressed with how many children chose to include salad in […]


Nativity Stories

We have been writing our own versions of the Nativity story. We published them into books which we were really proud of. Mrs Green was especially pleased with our complex sentences and best handwriting! (Well done HG, from Mrs Green).

Christmas Dinner

We all enjoyed our Christmas Dinner today. Some of us chose Traditional Turkey, and some of us chose the vegetarian option. It was delicious. With Christmas music playing in the background, we all felt in the festive mood, as we munched away before enjoying the entertainment from Quantum Theatre Company in the afternoon.

This term, Year 4 have been working on their ‘Singing’ skills. Sean sang brilliantly, and really enjoyed his performance. Billy also enjoyed his very important and responsible role of being a sound technician. […]
