The end of the term is here! The children have all worked so hard this term that they deserve a holiday and time to spend with their families. They are very excited at the prospect of Santa’s visit although some are a little worried that they are on the naughty list!
Don’t forget that any children who complete the reading challenge (reading 10 books) will receive special recognition in assembly in January. I have also sent some maths home learning – quick mental recall of number facts. Keep practising those number facts – bonds to 10, 20, 100, times tables, odd and even numbers, halving and doubling, add the red baubles to the green baubles etc etc…!
Most of all enjoy some special family time and we hope that you have an amazing and blessed holiday. Thank you all so much for the generous Christmas gifts. God bless you all,
Mrs. Luter, Miss Allen, Mrs. Chapman, Mrs Hewitt and Mrs Wickes.
And so the countdown to Christmas has begun! We went to Church on Tuesday and took part in a beautiful Advent service. We told the whole congregation what ‘Immanuel’ means and then shared our own name banners. Isaiah lived 600 years before Jesus but he knew that He was going to be born!
In collective worship this week we have been talking about how to get ready for Christmas. We are very excited about Father Christmas and presents and decorations but as Henry said we need to ‘decorate our hearts for Jesus’. In RE lessons we have thought about how we can do this.
We hope that you too are managing to prepare your hearts for Jesus and are not feeling too busy to spend some time just being still.

Two weeks until holiday time!
