A huge thank you to all who attended the Pre-Prep Nativity play - the children were thrilled to perform to three super audiences. We really hope you enjoyed seeing your child participate. DVDs of 'The Magical Nativity' have been ordered and will be you before the end of term. Meanwhile here are links to some photos of the Nativity for you to enjoy:

All the staff really enjoyed working together to produce the show and were grateful for all the parental support in rehearsing lines. A special mention must go to Mrs Morris Adams who slaved over her sewing machine to produce costumes for the cows and angels - her work was much appreciated!
There will be no Late Clubs next week, but Late Class will continue as normal.
The Pre-Prep Christmas Party will take place on Tuesday afternoon so please send in your child's party clothes in a named bag - the children will change after lunch.
Reports will be sent home in the Book Bags on Tuesday so please look out for these.
Games kit will be sent home with the children on Tuesday and all wet weather clothing and wellingtons will come home with the children on the last day of term.
Kindly note that we will break up on Wednesday at 12:20pm.
On Tuesday, January 10th at 3pm there will be a Judo demonstration to Year 2 children - their parents are warmly invited to attend. Jonathan Gerrans will explain the basics of Judo and older children will show what they have learned.
The Pre-Prep team wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
beautiful Christmas tree arrived this week in Nursery and the children
enjoyed decorating it from head to toe with golden baubles and lots and
lots of tinsel! We
also performed our magical Nativity on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
Nursery were twinkling stars and sang their own star song to entertain
with all this excitement, the children have spent time in the Sports
Hall working with the small apparatus and we have been busy making
Christmas cards using
our feet and hands! Finally, we joined the rest of Pre-Prep to watch a
super production of Beauty and the Beast in the Barn - much fun was had
I hope you all have a good weekend.
Next week's events to note:
Monday: No Library
Please can all children bring in a large bag for art and craft
Christmas Lunch and afternoon party
