Seasonal News




As a school, we usually sing every day and often many times in a day. We have all missed 'real singing', so we couldn't allow Christmas to happen without one whole-school song. As part of our 'Different, but Brilliant Christmas', the whole school worked together to sing one of our favourite Christmas hymns, Love Shone Down. We hope you enjoy watching.

Our Year 1 and Year 2 children were very excited to head to Holy Trinity Church this morning for our Christmas Service. Our Year 2 readers deserve a special mention for the excellent job they did. As always, Tim's sermon was wonderful and the children sang beautifully (and quietly). Please find the link to a video of the service below.

In school we have been marking Remembrance Day this week in a variety of ways.  Many of our children painted poppies onto stones which families then laid at the War Memorial at Holy Trinity Church on Remembrance Sunday.  Our Year 6 children have made some beautiful stained glass poppies which are on display in the Large Hall and other year groups have also been making creative and beautiful poppies which have been in display in school.  Rev Tim Garrett came into school and held a Remembrance Service with our Years 3 & 6 bubble and the other year groups also took part in the two minute silence at 11am in the Infant and Junior Playgrounds.


Thank you very much for the wonderful Harvest food and coins that children have brought in to school this week to celebrate Harvest Festival.  We are very proud of our wonderful Harvest Festival display now in the School Office area and are delighted that we have raised £353.  Everything will be donated to Spear (our local homeless charity) who will be able to distribute the toiletries and food to those most in need at this difficult time.  Years 4 & 5 will be celebrating Harvest during a socially distanced Church Service at Holy Trinity Church and the service will be recorded for other year groups to watch in classrooms.

All our children are completing some great work both online and in school. Congratulations to you all!
