A Wonderful Christmassy Week!

Mrs. Allen and I would like to congratulate the children on their wonderful nativity this week. We are so proud of them! The children have been learning about Mary and Joseph’s long journey to Bethlehem and the nativity really brought this to life for them. Our nativity was called ‘Are We Nearly There Yet?’ and we can certainly answer ‘yes’ to that question now! One week until the Christmas break when we can really enjoy some family time and preparations for the big day.

Tomorrow we are off to Hilliers in Southampton where the children will be able to see their art work that they created in school. Don’t forget to wrap up warm!

Thank you for encouraging your children to use Abacus at home, it really is making a big difference to the children’s learning in maths. We add new games weekly linked to the children’s learning so please continue to make this a part of your child’s home learning.

Have a wonderful week. Not long to go now!

A wonderful first week of Advent!

At the beginning of this week the whole school walked to the Sacred Heart Church for an Advent service. Every class contributed. Year one shared their ‘journey spirals’ which showed what Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem may have been like. Year one and two joined together to sing ‘Come Worship Him’, a hymn that we know you will all enjoy at our forthcoming Nativity ‘Are We Nearly There Yet?’.

In class we have been thinking about how we can get our hearts ready for the birth of Jesus. We have made our own class wreaths and focussed on the candle of Hope this week. It is so easy to get carried away with the hustle and bustle of Christmas time!

It has become rather chilly this week and the children have begun to learn how to read thermometers which are part of the weather station that we have set up to study throughout the year. I wonder what the weather was like on Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem?

Only two weeks left of this term it hardly seems possible. We hope that your preparations for Christmas are going smoothly.
