Well, the end of our first big term has finally arrived and what a term it has been!
We have come such a long way since September and the children have coped unbelievably well, coming into school with smiles on their faces and bringing many a smile to our faces, accepting and embracing every change that has come along and created some memorable moments along the way.
One of the most memorable moments of the term came to fruition this week with the performance of The Nativity. Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to email in or catch us in passing to thank us. It really was a chaotic few weeks, which resulted in so much happiness, enjoyment and reward for all involved. I think what was particularly nice this year was that the children absolutely loved watching themselves perform, the whole school was involved and many more people than usual were able to watch, what turned out to be a quite magical experience in such surreal times. We must not forget, those among us who have learned new skills, especially Mrs Clinkard who is now not only the Queen of Art, but also the Queen of iMovies! If you haven’t seen this week’s Henley Standard, please do have a look at page 5 in the Nativity supplement to see our little stars.
This week has been a week of weaving in Christmas Arts and crafts between lessons. We finally finished The Christmasaurus, which was enjoyed by all and we had a fantastic Christmas lunch cooked by Sally on Wednesday.
Mrs Hawkins surprised us all with our Christmas present from her, which was that she has adopted an elephant for us. We had to decide whether it was going to be a boy or girl, the majority chose a girl and then took a vote as to what we were going to call her before finally deciding on Sniffles. Sniffles then took pride of place on top of the Christmas tree and we are looking forward to the rest of the year when we will be learning more about Sniffles and her friends.
On Thursday afternoon we went for a walk along Church Lane singing Christmas songs and songs from the play, before our final Carol service , which we hope you all enjoyed.
There is no homework for the holidays, other than to keep reading, have lots of fun and enjoy your time together.
A huge thank you for all the gifts and cards that we have received this week and the biggest thank you of all should go to the children of Greys class who have been absolute superstars throughout, bringing smiles and laughter to our world each and every single day.
Merry Christmas to you all and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
I will post some photos of the past week over the next few days.
