Dear All,

Well another busy week at St Luke’s! Even better we are going to round it off with The Christmas Fair.

The children all made Christmas trees in their houses and the results are spectacular. Every year I think they can’t match last years and then they do. If you get the chance to pop in and see them do.  One of them will go down to The Methodist Church to be part of the Christmas tree festival.  A great time to see all the trees there would be on Thursday 14th December at 10.15 when the choir will be singing and we would love an audience.

On Monday the children were in awe at The Snowman concert put on by The Music Partnership.

A huge thank you goes out to Hannah Laxton, she has come in and worked with all the children helping them learn about the sheep and sheep farming. The children got a lot out of the sessions and were buzzing with enthusiasm after them.  We are very grateful to her.  We will miss the sheep when they return to their home field tomorrow.

Congratulations to our Boccia squad who came first in the tournament.

All afterschool clubs finish this week.

Friday is a busy day with Harriers visiting Bramall Hall, Kestrels leading our assembly and then at 5pm the much anticipated Christmas Fair. The fair will start with the choir entertaining us with a few songs and then everyone is free to play the games, try to win prizes on the tombolas, eat delicious Christmassy food and of course meet the main man.

Next week sees the Christmas Production by Peregrine’s and Osprey’s, they have been very busy learning their lines, practicing their songs and getting into character. If you haven’t requested your tickets yet for Tuesday 12th at 6pm and Wednesday 13th at 2.30pm please do so as soon as possible.

Friday 15th December is Christmas dinner day, children who usually have packed lunches need to book their dinner if they would like one.

Sunday 17th December is the traditional Carol service at St Luke’s Church our choir will be singing and some of our children will be reading.  Do come along for a really Christmassy feeling.

On Thursday 21st December it is our Carol Service at about 9.15am.  This is a lovely occasion and we would love to share it with you.  The children tell the story of Christmas through song, readings they have written and the children in Kestrels forming a tableau.

If you have some free time over the coming weekends and fancy some festive fun in the forest Insideout Forest Schools is offering Festive Forest Experiences on 16th, 17th and 23rd December.  For more details visit their website
