3 December 2021 Newsletter

As we head into the Christmas period, it reminds us just how special it is to work in a primary school. The children are already getting excited, particularly children in EYFS and year 1/2, who are ready for their nativity performance next week.

It's been another action-packed two weeks, with a wide range of experiences provided for the children:

- EYFS enjoyed their trip to Harlow Carr gardens.
- Years 1 and 2 enjoyed their trip to the Abbey House Museum in Leeds as part of their history topic on toys from the past and present.
- Years 3 and 4 experienced a fun-filled online workshop on Ancient Egypt as part of their topic this term.
- Year 6 travelled to the North-East for their annual trip to Kingswood.

Welcome back to second half of the autumn term. Every term is always a busy one for many reasons but with the run up to Christmas as well as the many other things happening over the next 7 weeks, this is always the most special for children.

It has been wonderful to see all of the children back in school for the last two weeks. With such a disrupted 18 months, I really hope this year allows children to have a much more settled experience.

"Whilst society has continued to open, the COVID-19 rules set out by the Government for schools has remained the same leading to huge disruption in schools across the country. Many events in schools have had to be cancelled as class bubbles are told to isolate.

I hope you managed to have some time as a family over half term and enjoy some of the warmer weather. It certainly felt more like summer after the cold, wet weather we've had recently. I cannot believe that we are into the final 7 weeks of the school year. And what a year it has been for the whole school community....

We've had another incredibly busy week in school and fast approaching the mid-way point in the summer term. The summer term is always one of the busiest and there is still lots to look forward to.
