The whole school enjoyed a wonderful Remembrance Service in church this afternoon, led by Reverend Paula who had the children on their feet singing, learning about the symbolism of the poppy and taking time to reflect on all we have to be thankful for.
December is one of the busiest months of the school year and here is a rundown of the main events for this half term.
Friday 1st December - Christmas Theme Day
A long standing favourite day! Children will spend the day engaged in a range of exciting Christmas activities (and they are allowed to wear their CHRISTMAS JUMPERS!)
Friday 1st December @5.30pm - Lantern Parade (Cedar Class) details to follow
To build on the children's learning about Diwali, a lantern making workshop (Tuesday 14th November) has been arranged for all pupils in Cedar Class. Pupils have then been invited to join the Yardley Hastings Lantern Parade to display their creations!
Saturday 2nd December @1-4pm - FOGS: Santa's Little Workshop Matinee
Thursday 7th December - Jungle Book theatre trip (Years 1-6)
Friday 8th December @3.30pm - FOGS Christmas Fair

Wrap up warm and join us for our Nativity, which takes place in the Early Years outdoor area.
Wednesday 20th December - Christmas Lunch
Dawn will be cooking a fantastic Christmas themed lunch - don't forget to book!
Wednesday 20th December @1.30pm - Carol Service in church
Please join us for a fun and informal service to round off the school's Christmas celebrations. Everyone is welcome. Refreshements will follow the service. Although the school will remain open until 3.30pm, parents will be able to collect their children from their classroom after the Carol Service.
Following their enrichment visit to Salcey Forest, Early Years children made their own Stick Men in school this week and linked this to work on writing and measurement - the standard of the work is mindblowing! On Monday, our Reception children visit the Derngate Theatre to see the stage show of Stick Man.
As I mentioned last week, Woodleys Day Nurseries have shared their proposals with the school. Although hard copies of all the documentation, including booking forms, will be provided by Wooldeys imminently for us to distribute to parents, I have attached a link here for you to read their proposal. The link includes pricing and also explains the Ofsted registration process. The attachment does refer to the 'Village Hall' but it actually means 'Church Room'.
