Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Autumn 13
It was a joy for us to see so many parents, grandparents and friends attending our Christmas production “Around the World in Time for Christmas” on Tuesday morning – evidence of a truly supportive parent body. Your children transported us to so many places through their songs and we are enormously proud of every single one. I can honestly say that we were not expecting the children to sing so clearly and loudly as they did and the confidence that they exhibited was astounding! To have 64 mainly three year olds performing in front of almost 200 people in the way they did is a credit to each and every one of them. As always I am indebted to my staff who care so much for the children and support them in everything they do. The costumes you provided looked wonderful, so thank you. I am looking forward to seeing it again soon when the DVD copy I have ordered arrives.
We have welcomed more new children this week, who will be joining the Nursery in January, and they are delightful. I feel certain that your children will very quickly be talking about their new friends.
Thank you to those who contributed to our Christmas Jumper Day today for “Save the Children”. Our Department raised £62.52 for this worthy charity. Many thanks also for all the biscuits you have provided for local families in need this Christmas which will be distributed by the Salvation Army.
A big thank you goes to our catering staff who produced the most wonderful Christmas lunch for us today and for all their support at our various events.
- Monday 16th December is the Nursery Christmas entertainment morning to which all Nursery children are invited to attend even if they do not usually come on a Monday. The children may wear party clothes for the occasion. The PTA is very kindly funding a children’s entertainer.
- Wednesday 18th December at 11.15 am we have our Christmas carols and songs to which the parents are invited. If your child does not usually come on Wednesdays please join us at 11.15am in the Chapel (pass the office and dining room in the main school entrance, through the door, up the stairs and the Chapel is immediately in front of you).
- Please check your email on Tuesday as I will be sending the “2Build a profile” observations we have carried out this half term. It would be really helpful if you could acknowledge receipt via 2Build.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of new years.
