Y5/6 children travelled to Sheffield Motorpoint Arena to participate in Young Voices. Young Voices’ mission is to provide a musical experience for children and inspire a love of music that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
During the afternoon of Monday 18 December, all children had Christmas parties. Staff enjoyed the opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit and celebrate the end of a very busy and enjoyable term.
Infants enjoyed a wonderful day at Rand Farm. As well as a delicious lunch with Santa (including a surprise gift), they saw and fed the animals, and had an exciting tractor ride.
We are immensely proud of our “Ducklings” – to think they have only been with us for 3 months, and they are able to take on key rolls in our infant Nativity. Parents, staff and juniors thoroughly enjoyed the performance of “A King is Born”. A huge ‘well done’ to children in Years Reception, 1 and 2 – as one of our Governors commented, this performance really does put us all in a Christmas mood!
We couldn’t believe our luck when Santa took time out of his hectic schedule and paid a visit to our Christmas lunch! Children were enjoying a delicious lunch of roast turkey and chocolate cake – but it didn’t stop one of two of them jumping up to greet Santa with their Christmas lists!
Two village charities kindly donated funds to enable the children to enjoy “Cinderella”, performed by a visiting theatre company. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by all!
On Monday 4 December, children attended the Christingle Service in St Andrew’s Church. They had worked very hard on putting together a meaningful and very accomplished service. Several parents commented that they had thoroughly enjoyed it and that this was “the best ever”!
Children came to school wearing spots and gave donations in support of Children in Need. The School Council organised a decorated cookie competition, with a sports theme. Altogether, we raised an impressive £194 (including contributions from Potterhanworth Pre School).
We are absolutely delighted to have won the ASA School Swimming Charter Primary School of the Year award for 2017!
This is an outstanding achievement for our small school.
Hopefully, you may have heard Miss Turpin’s interview on BBC Radio Lincolnshire on 15 November!
Y5 pupils enjoyed two days of Bikeability Training – ensuring that they are fully aware of how to cycle safely.
