Christmas Ararngements and events
As we approach the end of the Autumn term I would like to thank you for the incredible support shown by the parents of the school during what has been a challenging time for everyone. The children have been amazing in the way they have responded to the different ways of learning and the new routines we have had to implement as a result of Covid 19.
Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Local Authority have asked that parents contact the school in the event of a Covid positive case (this includes the school holidays).
During the school holidays, emails will be monitored for any such reports. Please report any positive Covid cases to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d like to thank you for the generous donations to the Reverse Advent campaign. All goods donated will go the local food bank.
Arrangements for Christmas will be very different this year, however we still want to make the last week of the term a memorable and exciting week for the children.
Festive activities will be taking place throughout the week. There will still be Christmas parties, held in classrooms this year. As well as traditional party games, the children will be watching Jamie Jambo, a visiting magician, on the day of their Christmas party. Each year group will enjoy a separate performance. On party day, the children are invited to come in to school wearing mufti for the whole day.
Party days – Year 3 - Monday 14th December
Year 5 – Tuesday 15th December
Year 4 – Wednesday 16th December
Year 6 - Thursday 17th December
In addition to children wearing mufti on the day of their party, we also invite the children to wear a Christmas jumper into school throughout the whole of the last week. Although with Covid it will not be possible to host our usual pantomime with all the children in the hall, we have purchased a digital version for the children to watch in their classrooms to really get them in the Christmas spirit!
Each class will also have the opportunity to cook with Mrs Hills (our cookery teacher) to produce some edible Christmas treats.
On the last day of term, Friday 18th December, we invite children to bring in games to play, (no tablets or lap tops please). On this day we are also offering a hot Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
School will finish at the usual time for each class on Friday 18th December and we return on Monday 4th January 2021.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy Christmas.
