As we progress through Advent we talked about Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem. Our preparations are now ‘full steam ahead’ - carols can be heard from every room, the shepherd costumes have been dragged up from the cellar and our Christmas Post Box is full to the brim. It was a strange Christmas Dinner Day, on Thursday, with a temporary team and the absence of familiar faces but there were still many beaming smiles. Thank you to all who cooked, served and cleaned to make sure everyone enjoyed their sprouts safely.
Friday was Christmas Jumper Day and it was fantastic to see the joy that this day brings for many children (and staff). We raised over £135 for Save the Children. There was also the opportunity for Year 1 and 2 families to see some Come and See work, at Friday Coffee, and chat to teachers. Thank you to staff, pupils, PTA and families for making this event a success.
We know that our long journey through advent, following the star, will end with a special baby in a manger. But half way through one special baby has finally arrived home after a long journey. Congratulations to Miss Copp, Tom and Baby Grace.
