Autumn 2

Thank you all so much for all of our lovely Christmas gifts! We appreciate them all - thank you!

The children were absolutely amazing in their Christmas performance, there was fantastic singing, dancing and acting. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. We were incredibly proud of them all.

The children are allowed to bring a toy into school tomorrow (Thursday 20th December), please ask them to bring something they are happy to share and nothing expensive (for example - no ipads etc). We break up for the Christmas holidays tomorrow afternoon at 3:15pm. Thank you.

Can we also take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing everyone again on Monday 7th January. smiley

 

We are so impressed with the puppets the children made for homework! We are planning to make a shadow theatre after the Christmas holidays and create our very own plays with our puppets. Well done Year 3.
