Dear Parents,

We are all very busy with the final Christmas Fun but we cannot see past the bus! Wow, Wow, Wow how fantastic is it for us to have a bus on the playground to provide some extra outside space for us. We are so grateful to Stagecoach who have donated the bus to us. A number of people have asked ‘Why a bus?’ to which my first answer is why not! But really the plan is to use it as a space to make the playground more creative and provide another option for children who are struggling to find something to do on the playground.

The choir were amazing when they were singing in Church on Sunday and Tesco on Wednesday. I am so looking forward to listening to them in Norfolk Square and at the Carol Concert. If you remember the sing in Norfolk Square is a meet by 6.20, we are singing first and then we are giving your children back immediately to enjoy the rest of the carols with you.

On Friday it is our Carol Service, which I know you all enjoy so do join us if you can. It is held in St Luke’s Church and starts 9.15-20ish depending when we are all there. The children in Kestrels will be sent home with their costumes tonight. Please can they meet us at church at about 9.00 dressed up and with their uniform in a bag. They don’t need their book bags. We would like the choir and the children reading to also meet us at church at about 9.00.

On Friday it is also our Christmas Dinner Day and I am very excited because you have only let us know about 3 children not having Christmas Dinner with us. It is always a great event and is best when as many children as possible participate.

We finish for Christmas at the end of the day tomorrow and school will reopen on Monday 7th January.

Dinners for next term are £2.10 which works out at £63 up to half term and another £73.50 to Easter so £136.50 for the whole term. If you still owe any money for this term please pay it.

I hope you all have a lovely festive period and that 2019 is a great year for one and all.
