Our Current Value is: Honesty

 

Dear Parents and Carers

 

Our Christmas celebrations began yesterday with a delightful concert by our Nursery children. They sang beautifully and looked splendid in their Christmas jumpers.  We look forward to the Reception concert this afternoon.

 

Congratulations

Congratulations to Isabel Snook who won the competition to design the Mayor’s Christmas Card. We are very proud of her!

 

Key Stage 1 Concerts

Key Stage 1 are planning two concerts next Thursday; 1.30pm and 6pm. We respectfully ask that you bring pre-school siblings to the afternoon performance and not the evening performance.  Thank you for your understanding.

 

The PTA will be selling refreshments of tea, coffee, juice and mince pies before the concerts for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and the evening concerts will also include Mulled Wine.

 

Choir

Congratulations to our choir on two excellent performances over the last week. They performed superbly at the lights switch on event in Witney on Friday night and on a very soggy Wednesday afternoon raised £232 towards their trip to the O2 in London by busking outside Waitrose.  We will also be making a donation to Crisis at Christmas from the money raised.  They are an exceptional group of singers and we are very proud of them.  Their final ‘tour’ this season will be at the Christmas market in  Cogges on Sunday morning.  There is a photograph of them on our website

 

Clubs

School Clubs have now finished for the term. Premier Soccer will be holding their last session next week and will be restarting on January 16th.  Flyers to follow.

 

Raffle Tickets

If you are able to support our Christmas Raffle please return your tickets to school as soon as possible. The draw will be made at the disco on 14th December but you do not have to be there to enter the raffle.
