Family Group Reading
We have been enjoying Family Group Reading time which gives children from Years 1 to 6 the opportunity to share books together. Time spent in family groups is important to our social development and team spirit. Children from the older year groups share books with children from the younger year groups and favourite authors and books are discussed with much excitement. We are all looking forward to the next session!
As part of our Advent preparation this year, we have decided to include Posada celebrations. ‘Posada’ is a Spanish word which means ‘inn’. Posada celebrations originated in South America where two children were chosen to represent Mary and Joseph. They went from house to house telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus. A modern equivalent is based on this concept but encourages people to give a home to the wooden nativity figures of Mary and Joseph for a night. Each night throughout Advent the figures travel from family to family and this symbolises making room for Jesus in our lives, homes and communities.
Here are a few examples from different children across the school:
Operation Christmas Child
Thank you to everyone who donated shoe boxes, items to go in the boxes and their time to help wrap the boxes. The children loved learning about why the items were being collected and enjoyed selecting different items to pack in the boxes. We are pleased to tell you that we have donated 48 shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child. If you would like to read more about the charity, please follow the link below.
Mystery and Magic WOW day!
What a fantastic start to our new school year! As part of our new Mystery and Magic theme, the children were whisked into the weird and wonderful world of ‘Dragon’s Den’ winners: Sublime Science, where they took part in a whole day of science-based mystery.
We look forward to our second WOW day this term ~ a whole school trip on The Polar Express!
