It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…
Special Visitor Rounds Off Wonderful Term In The Nursery
As Nursery bid farewell to a fabulous autumn term, the annual Christmas party brought joy and laughter to our little ones. The children delighted in a festive Christmas lunch, relishing the delights of crackers and donning their cheerful Christmas jumpers for an afternoon of lively dancing. And a special visitor dropped by to spread festive cheer and wish the children a very happy Christmas. It was a fantastic conclusion to a wonderful term filled with growth, learning, and heart-warming moments. Wishing you all a joyous holiday season!

Reception Just Love How The Cookie Crumbles!
In honour of the festive season, Reception made lovely Christmas gingerbread cookies. The children used their listening and teamwork skills to follow the recipe and mix the ingredients. And the end result? The cookies tasted delicious and the children loved eating them as they settled in to watch a fun Christmas film.

Wonderful Performance A Fitting Finale For Year 1
Year 1 signed off for the festive break with a wonderful Christmas performance in the theatre. Proudly showing off their speaking, teamwork and listening skills, the children told a wonderful tale involving aliens, a broken spaceship and the birth of Jesus. I have been particularly lucky to have taught these children over the last two years and seen their growth and development and we are all so proud of everything they have achieved this year, not least their brilliant play.

‘Prickly Hay’ Success As Year 2 Produce A Tour De Force
The Year 2 performance of Christmas play ‘Prickly Hay’ was an outstanding success, culminating in a resounding encore and rapturous applause from the delighted audience of watching parents. Delivering an authentic and expressive performance, the children continually improved their speaking skills through learning their lines, rehearsing, committing to their roles, and projecting their voices. Their pure joy and love of singing and dancing radiated throughout the performance.

Year 3’s Christmas Lunch Is A Real Cracker
As Year 3 happily tucked into a fabulous Christmas lunch on Wednesday, thoughts turned to the amazing efforts of our fabulous catering team, who keep the children (and staff) well fed and watered all year round. On Wednesday, catering manager Marco and his skilled team roasted a whopping 60 kilos of Hampshire turkey crowns, rolled 600 pigs in blankets and made 400 portions of homemade stuffing, not to mention cooking a colossal 85 kilos of roast potatoes! Despite the hot and hard work in the kitchens, Marco said the smiling faces of the children and the many handmade Christmas cards given to the team made it all worthwhile.
