It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…
 
Despite all of the restrictions, we still want to make the build up to Christmas as fun and exciting as always for our children and families!
In case you missed any of our recent announcements, December will include:
 
- The PTA’s annual prize draw and class Christmas hampers (see separate email, last week’s newsletter and the PTA Facebook page for more information);
 
- Christmas productions recorded and on sale as audio CDs, with all profits going to the PTA (see separate letter for more information – pre-orders are available now!) and a chance for children to design the front cover for each of the CDs (more information to be shared with the children next week);
 
- The Christmas card postbox will be available for children to post their Christmas cards in, if they wish to, from Monday 7th to Friday 11th December, with cards quarantined over the following weekend and delivered to classes in the last week of term (more information about this to be published next week);
 
- Children may wear a Christmas jumper to school on Friday 11th December, with a £1 voluntary contribution requested which will go to Save the Children;
 
- The children were given a chance to vote whether they wanted a traditional Christmas dinner this year (bearing in mind that we are still having to serve school dinners in disposable boxes in classrooms at the moment) or a box of ‘party food’: unsurprisingly, the majority voted for the latter, so this will be the special school lunch on Thursday 17th December, which will be followed by an afternoon of Christmassy fun in classrooms.
