Key Stage 1 Winter Show!

Congratulations to everyone in Key Stage 1 for delivering a sparkling Winter show! The children in Years 1 and 2 have been practicing with great diligence and performed an uplifting play called ‘Santa’s Hat’ in which Father Christmas loses his hat and his elves set off on a mission to find it. The children sang beautifully and delivered their lines with confidence and charm. A big thank you to parents and carers for practicing lines with their children. A special thank you to those who helped with the set, and huge well done to the Year 1 and 2 teams!

Stars of the Week!


The assembly hall is looking wonderfully festive. Our Christmas tree is covered with stars made by the children and shooting stars adorn the walls. What better setting for our stars of the week! These are the children who impressed their teachers with their hard work, their creativity, their kindness, and their resilience. A huge well done to our friends of the week too. What will you do to be a star of the week next time around?
