Dear Parents and Carers
This week has been a very busy one in school. The children had lots of fun Christmas shopping on Tuesday. There is lots of rehearsing and singing all around our school ready for our performances next week. We know lots of parents are very excited for the performances and it will be the first one for many parents. Each family should have received 2 tickets for their performance. The performance is for 12 years and above. We have have a creche for children who are junior age and younger, and parents will need to book a place in there/make other arrangements for them. The children are very excited to perform to you all! Following the performance we make a collection which goes to replenishing costumes and our local chosen Christmas Children's Charity. This year it will be Naomi House.
We have sent out FAQ sheets regarding the rise in scarlet fever. Please be vigilant in checking your child, and refer to the sheets if you suspect your child is poorly. There are quite a few nasty flu-like bugs going around, and I was laid low myself with a high temperature. Wrap up warm and take care!
Our Christmas party day is on Wednesday, so please can your children wear party clothes (sensible shoes and warm coats are a must for playtimes). We will be having Christmas Lunch and party games and hope for a visit from the big man in red!
We will have our annual Christmas Jumper/dress down day on Friday 16th December. Any donations brought in will go to Naomi House, who have supported many of our families in school over the years.
Our PTA have been very busy collecting for our Christmas Raffle and we have loads of lovely gifts to be won. We will call the raffle on the morning of the last performance, and inform all winners promptly. Well done to everyone involved in the selling of the tickets and collating the prizes. All monies raised are going towards our new Reflection Area/Outside Learning space. We are currently in the process of finding quotes for developing the space in our school grounds.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and are enjoying the countdown to Christmas.
