An Advent of Kindness
The School Council have been working with Mr. Howe on the school's mission and vision. They have asked to have the word "kind" as one of the words defining who we are so throughout December we are having an advent of kind deeds.
This week our kind acts are:
Monday-help a teacher to tidy up before break or lunchtime.
Tuesday-wish the dinner staff good morning.
Wednesday-help a classmate with their homework or reading.
Thursday-do your homework straight after school without an adult asking you to do it.
Friday-tell a teacher how much you appreciate what they teach.
Learning About A Victorian Christmas
Do you remember our Dickensian themed week in March? So many of our Christmas traditions have their origins from the time of Queen Victoria's reign that this week we are discovering all about how Victorians celebrated Christmas. I know that Year 6 are focusing on "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens and today's assembly will be the story of "The Little Match Girl, also written at that time.
A reminder that the school's Christingle service led by Rev Child takes place in the school hall on Thursday morning. Adults are very welcome to join us.
This year the Christmas Fayre raised a magnificent £950.77. Thank you once again for all your support in making this a very successful event, raising valuable funds for the benefit of your children.

There are slots available from 6.30pm to 8.00pm and it's only £2.50 for a memorable, magical time.
Change of Party Date
Just to remind parents that the Year 5 and 6 party will now take place on Tuesday 15th December so that, on Monday, our very youngest children in nursery and Reception can sing to their parents around our beautiful Christmas tree.
