Christmas is fast approaching! It is such a lovely time of year for us and sees our excellent personal, social and emotional skills come shining through in lots that we do. As you can imagine, this is an especially busy and exciting period for us all so we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of some special dates for your diaries:
Monday 2nd December ¶
You might find that Santa’s Little Elves have paid a visit to our classroom.
Christmas Raffle to start
We shall be raffling off two exciting festive presents (no gift donations required thank you). Raffle tickets will be available from today in our cloakroom at a cost of 20p per ticket/£1 for a strip. The raffle will be drawn in the final week and winners shall be announced. Monies raised go to replacing lost, worn or broken resources within the classroom.
Christmas Post +
The children really enjoy giving cards to their friends and we will have our own special Christmas Post-Box for them to post their mail. To make it easier for the children to sort and deliver, please could you put the child’s name clearly on the front of the envelope along with the class e.g. Acorns AM or PM (Nursery), Alder or Ash (Reception classes). Class lists will be made available in the cloakroom.
Thursday 5th December ¶
We will be collecting in library books on this day and ask for all books to be returned please. Lost books may be replaced with one of your own that is age appropriate and in a good condition or a small donation is accepted.
Thursday 12th December ¶
Christmas Circles at 8:30am and 12:30pm
We ask you to join us for our special Christmas Circle where we will share some of our favourite festive songs! Come along dressed in your Christmas jumpers to get into the festive spirit and feel free to stay for a short while following this for a mince pie.
Friday 13th December ¶
Get those Christmas jumpers ready for Save the Children’s National Christmas Jumper Day.
Monday 16th December ¶
Nursery sessions will run as normal on this day but children are invited to wear a special party outfit should they wish.
After lots of fun and games, we shall end our party with some yummy Christmas lunch/tea. This year we are asking parents to provide a special Christmas party packed lunch for your child rather than a platter of food to share. As this is a special occasion, we are happy for them to have any food which you consider to be appropriate including chocolate/sweets. If you would like to decorate your child’s lunchbox with them to make it lovely and festive and add to the atmosphere, we would love to see them…maybe even add a Christmas cracker or other Christmassy items!
Wednesday 18th December ¶
Sadly this is the final session for our afternoon children as the Thursday is a half day for the whole of the school.
Thursday 19th December ¶
This is the last day of term for our morning children.
We wish you all the very best during the festive season and
hope you have a safe, healthy and successful New Year!
Just a reminder…spring term begins on Tuesday 7th January 2020
