Yes, appreciate I would say it wouldn’t I, but it really is a magical time of year in Primary Schools. Last week we had the joy of the Foundation Stage Nativity. There really is something very magical and special watching over 70 children aged 3, 4 and 5 perform a nativity in front of their quite rightly proud and delighted family and friends. Memories are made which will I have no doubt stay with all the adults who saw the shows last week well into 2020 and beyond. I have no doubt that our Middle and Upper Phase Christmas Celebrations, along with the more traditional Carol Service on the last day of term will provide the same for those who are fortunate enough to be able to be there.
Whilst the youngest children in the school were performing the nativity, our year 5 children were taking part in the Christmas Tree Festival at St. Mary’s Church in Bloxham. We were delighted to not only be asked to participate by decorating and sponsoring a tree, but also to sing as part of the opening celebration.
Amongst all the excitement and anticipation of this time of the year, the children continue to focus on the more academic aspects of their learning. One of the real highlights for me last week was when one of our year 6 children proudly showed me the difference between their work this time last year and now. Another Inspiring Young Mind.
