Head’s Blog – 11th December 2020
We have had a very hectic week in school. The children have been carrying out a range of assessments which will show us how much progress they have made and to inform teaching next term. We are very proud of all of them as they have coped so well with the constant changing world.
As part of welly walk this week we investigated snow flakes. Whilst it was not cold enough to see any snowflakes instead we went for a walk in the village to spot Christmas decorations with a play at the park too. I love seeing the children running around having fun, they were so happy.
We were lucky to be able to have our Christingle service in the church. Whilst parents were not able to attend, I have recorded it and will publish it next week, along with the Nativity from Reception and KS1 and the carols sang by KS2. Here is a sneak preview, excuse the coats it was absolutely freezing in there!
Today saw our annual trip to Clearwell Caves. Whilst the organisation was a bit different, it still looked absolutely beautiful and we are very grateful to Jonathan Wright who lets us visit for free and only pay for the gifts. This is very generous particularly in a year that his business has been hit, as have many others.
Then we had our Christmas dinner, our wonderful dinner ladies have excelled themselves as ever. It is always a team effort and this year, the children sat in their bubbles and had waitress service from the teaching staff. It was delicious.
