Hi Everyone,

WOW another SUPER WEEK made extra special by the BRILLIANT KS1 nativity play ‘A Midwife Crisis’! The children from Year 1 and Year 2 were AMAZING!! FANTASTIC performances and great audiences too! WELL DONE TO CLASS 1 AND CLASS 2! My sincere thanks to Miss Turner, Miss Worthington, Mrs Disley, Miss Hubbard, Mrs Lormor, Miss Knowles and Miss Edwards who made sure it was such a fabulous show!

We welcomed our Governors for a Learning Walk on Thursday and it was lovely to tour school with them. Governors were impressed with the learning environment, behaviour of all the children, the engagement and focus of the children and independent learning. GREAT news! Governors are invited to visit school in session each term so they can confirm the self-evaluation, thanks again to governors who visited.

The children enjoyed the Christmas dinner on Thursday, special thanks to Mrs Tyrer and Mrs Brown in the kitchen who work hard to make sure it is a delicious dinner for everyone!

Sincere thanks for you continued support for the Christmas colour hamper raffle – the tickets are selling well! We will be drawing the raffle after our Advent Mass next Wednesday with Fr Morrough. You might be a lucky winner!

It was great to see so many parents come to both the Reception class ‘Stay and Play’ and Open Session todayTHANK-YOU! The children love sharing their topic work with you and their work displayed in class. Our next Open Session will be on Friday 8th February.
