National Day of Reflection
Today we have taken part in the National Day of Reflection.
We have been thinking about how difficult the last 12 months have been since the Prime Minister delivered the difficult message to us all that the country was going into 'Lockdown'.
We have talked today about loss and suffering, but also togetherness. The last 12 months have brought grief, but also shown incredible strength of character of so many.
23 / 03 / 21 ... we commemorate, reflect and pray.
Thank you to all the children in Class 10 for bringing in donations for our Christmas hamper. We are thrilled with all the goodies received and are sure these will be enjoyed by many! We thank parents for their continued support.

As part of our Advent preparations, and to keep the true meaning of Christmas alive in our hearts and minds, Class 9 and Class 10 would like to raise some money for a local homeless charity during this half term. After discussions with the children, we have decided to arrange a homemade Christmas decoration competition.
Christmas Decoration Competition – children will be encouraged to design and create their own colourful creation at home to hang on our class Christmas trees to spread a little joy during this difficult time. The children will be asked to bring in a £1 for each decoration that they wish to submit. The decorations will be judged by Mrs Dunne, who will select a winner for each class. The winner from each class will receive a prize. Entries must be brought into school on Monday 7th December 2020 and the winners will be announced the following day, Tuesday 8th December.
Christmas Hamper - we also decided that we would like to help a family enjoy Christmas Day this year by creating a class Christmas Day Hamper. All we ask is that your child comes to school in their own clothes on Tuesday 8th December and donate an item to our Family Christmas Hamper.
We have provided a list of items you could pick from, but if you have another idea in mind it will be greatly appreciated!
Christmas Day Family Hamper List:
Mince Pies Biscuits
Sweets Tinned vegetables
Selection box Gravy granules
Christmas pudding Stuffing
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Loraine, Mr Jarvis, Mrs Holt, Mrs Smith, Mr Cunningham and all of Class 9 & 10.
Christmas Carol Service for KS2
Tuesday 8th December 2020
Sadly, we cannot perform our Christmas Carol Service in Church this year due to the pandemic. However, each class in KS2 are going to perform a part of the nativity in a carol format in the (well-ventilated) hall.
This will be recorded during our school day at the end of this week and shared on our school website on Thursday 17th December for you to watch and enjoy.
Class 10 will record their part of the nativity on Friday 11th December.
Please can your child wear a black (or dark) top, school trousers/skirt and school shoes in school on this day.
Thank you for your continuous support,
Welcome to all our new members of Class 10 - staff and children alike.
Your teacher will be Mrs Loraine, supported by Mrs Smith and Mrs Holt.
We are going to have a very busy and exciting year and will post our adventures on this class page. Please keep your eyes peeled to see what wonderful work has been taking place.
Class 10 have two PE days this term. These are on Monday and Friday. The children will need to come in to school dressed in their PE kits for our Monday session. For our Friday PE session, we will be learning how to swim. The children will need to bring their swimming kit with them in to school on Friday.
Please read our Autumn 1 newsletter to find out about all of the fantastic things that we will be doing this half term!
