Mrs Kirby's words Autumn week 11
With Christmas creeping ever closer, and the excitement of Christmas activities in full swing, I was so sad to test positive for Covid 19 this week and find out that I will miss a large chunk of the festivities. I am staying well-informed from Mrs King and Mr Richards but I am very much looking forward to getting back and joining in with the fun on Christmas Jumper Day!
It was wonderful to arrive at school at the beginning of the week to see everything covered in a light dusting of snow! Although it was extremely cold, the girls had a fantastic time and we were a little sad that it only lasted the day! No snowmen yet!
It was like the start of Panto season for the Year 2 girls on Wednesday with ‘oh no they won’t’ followed by ‘oh yes they will’ go ahead with their outdoor assembly. We were very nearly stopped by the weather but with a little bit of reshuffling and lots of enthusiasm from the Year 2 parents, we managed to go ahead. Unfortunately, I had to watch via FaceTime but the girls spoke, sang and performed brilliantly.
Thursday was a busy day. Year 3 girls and boys had an early start to get on the road for their trip to Stonehenge linked to their Stone Age topic. The girls and boys were treated to a guided tour of the site and then in smaller groups, each had a workshop provided by their dedicated staff. It certainly wasn’t a warm day out but it was enjoyed by all.
Some representatives of our Junior and Senior pupil voice, and our Junior Head and Deputy Head girls spent a couple of hours decorating trees for the St Luke’s Christmas tree trail. Pupil Voice voted on the theme of ‘snowy’ for our CCJG tree and each class created their own decorations including snowflakes, snowmen, frosty trees and icicles. Well done to all of our Junior Girls for their contributions. The Christmas Tree trail is running from today,3 - 5 December. Please feel free to visit and vote for your favourite tree!
Finally, we may not have had enough snow for real snowmen on Monday but Cookery Club created these mouth watering Christmas biscuits yesterday! Don’t they look delicious?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
