Before the Christmas holidays, every year group created beautiful Christmas cards to send to other European countries. We have received cards from schools in lots of countries including Spain, Croatia, Bulgaria, Poland, Wales and Latvia. Each year group also received their own set of cards created by children at another Spanish school. Y2E were also fortunate enough to receive personal Christmas cards from their new pen pals in Spain. We can’t wait to take part in more international projects!
Thursday 17th December saw the last Carol Concert by the current Year 6. As Miss Chipchase reminded parents, it only seems like five minutes since they were performing ‘Oops – A- Daisy Angel’ in their Reception classes. This time the script was written by the children themselves. and told the story of the Nativity through letters and news broadcasts.
The concert was held at Harton Methodist Church, which added to the magic of the occasion, and we give thanks to Reverend Debbie for allowing us to continue our community links with this church. It was well attended by parents and the children performed very professionally. Every word could be heard and the singing was ‘angelic’.
Merry Christmas from all the staff and pupils in year 6.
Y1V had gone down to a special Year 5 assembly. Imagine their shock when they returned to class to see that a little visitor had been a bit naughty when they were out!
Maybe this little elf won’t be getting any Christmas presents from Santa this year?
For ‘World Christmas Day’ all of year 4 took a trip to France for the day. The children engaged in a range of activities including writing a letter in French, learning French songs, researching information about France using the internet, making calendars in the style of a French painter and most importantly they got to taste traditional French food.
Year 3 celebrated World Christmas Day by looking at Russian Christmas customs. They learnt some Russian words, facts about Russia, the story of Baboushka, made Russian nesting dolls and even tried some traditional Russian Christmas food.
On Friday we all came to school in our Christmas Jumpers. Everyone looked great.

A very excited group of children brought their crafty items, all ready to decorate a bauble. We set about designing our baubles with a theme of the North East. What fantastic ideas the children had! Off we go glue, glitter….
Once completed we chose our entry to send, yes you’ve guessed it ours
went all of the way to County Donegal, Northern Ireland.
Today we received a festive bauble from our Partner school.
Y3B have enjoyed taking part in the European Christmas Tree Decoration Exchange. We made decorations and Sean’s was picked to be sent to Germany.
