This week in Year 3
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
What a wonderful start to our Christmas celebrations! The Christingle service was a beautiful way to remind ourselves of the importance of thinking of others in this busy time. The Year 3 children performed with confidence and evident enjoyment. An enormous thank you to Mr Bullock for his excellent Chaplaincy duties and to Edna for making a surprise appearance. Thank you, too, to Mr Fox for coming to our rescue when Mrs Oatham’s large Christingle imploded on her. He quickly stepped in and created a very striking and modern looking 3D orange with red LED lights!
Thank you to Mrs Jarvis for preparing the children and giving them the confidence to sing so beautifully and to Mr Balfour and to Mrs Greenwood for their support with the service.
A final thank you to all the support you, as parents, have given the children. Please see the pictures below:

Year 3 and 4 have been working really hard in their Dance and Drama and Music lessons to put together this festive production. Please provide your son/daughter with a costume for their performances. All items should be brought into school, in a named bag on Monday 5 December. Please ensure everything is named. Details of costumes can be found here
Christmas Baubles Fundraiser
The tree is filling up with baubles, but there is lots of room for more to help us raise funds for the Christingle Charity, The Children’s Society, who provide specialist support that empowers young people to make positive changes and rediscover their hope. For more information on the work of the Children’s Society, please follow the link here.
Please bring in your bauble on any day, then you may choose a special spot and hang it on the tree.Please ask your parents to donate £2 for your bauble, either by bringing the money into school, or by using a new Just Giving page here.
Year 3 Christmas Market
The Year 3 and 1 Christmas market will be held on Thursday. This has been a very enjoyable collaboration between the Junior and Middle Departments as we capture some of the festive spirit. More information has been placed in the Google Classrooms. Thank you to those of you who have already sent some items in to School.
Egyptian Day is also just around the corner! You still have time to finalise your costumes before Friday 2 December!
