Diary Dates


Despite having some make some changes this year, we are very excited to share our Christmas dates with you for the next few weeks. It wasn’t an easy decision to postpone Christmas cards as I know how much the children enjoy sharing them with each other, but our Christmas message boards are up and running and children are keen to share Christmas cheer and goodwill with each other.

On Friday the staff met and we put together a calendar of activities until the end of term. These can be found below. They have all been carefully planned to ensure that COVID guidelines are being adhered to, but also, that the children are going to have some fun and end the year as positively as possible.




Friday 4th December

Christmas Trees and Decorations.

All Christmas decorations to be up in classes.

Thursday 10th December


KS2 to make Christingles in their classes and the hall. Each child will receive their own ingredients to make a Christingle and these will be brought home at the end of the day. They will not be lit so this can be done at home if desired.

Friday 11th December

Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day

Children are welcome to wear their Christmas Jumpers into school. If you would like to donate £1 to save the children that would be great, but this not compulsory.

Wednesday 16th December

Christmas Lunch

Christmas lunch to be served in classes for FSU, C2 and C3. C4 to be based in the hall with Y6 having a top table. Staff will serve Y6. All children to create their own placemat.

Thursday 17th December

Christmas Parties.

FSU and KS1 will have their special Christmas parties in their bubbles.

KS2 will have a school organised disco in the hall. These events will be complimented with items donated by FANS which we’re very grateful for. All food and drink will be individually wrapped and given to each child.

Children are welcome to wear their Christmas jumpers on the last day, where the staff will have prepared a fun and exciting last day of term.
