Pupil Voice

Pupils in Key Stage one performed their Nativity this week.  Here are some of their thoughts about their performance.

Freddy said, “It was really exciting, I had lots of fun.  My best part was doing all the actions to the song ‘I work with all my might’.”

Amelia said, “My favourite dance was to the song ‘All around the town, this place is jumping.’ I liked all the mummies and daddies seeing us and taking pictures.”

Jessica said, “My favourite song was ‘Ring out those Bells’ because we all got to say Merry Christmas at the end of it.  I enjoyed doing all the actions to all the songs; I liked performing to Mummy and Daddy.”

William said, “It was really cool.  I liked performing and being involved and being on the stage a lot.  It has made me really excited about Christmas.”

Cayla said, “My favourite part of the Nativity was when Mary spoke.  My favourite song was ‘Christmas time is here’ and ‘please stop that knocking’.  I really enjoyed performing to my Mummy, brothers and sisters.”

Lia said, “My favourite part was when the narrators told us about Mr Potts.  My favourite song was ‘I’d rather have a bale of hay'.”

Information

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
