School Open Tomorrow

School open tomorrow with a staggered start: registers open until 10am.

Church car park closed to parents. Please park away from school and walk in but take care on pavements. Children should wear any weather appropriate footwear but bring with them slippers or indoor shoes to change into.

Nativity will go ahead as planned tomorrow evening. Monday’s matinee will take place tomorrow afternoon (all tickets transferable from Monday). Last Monday’s evening performance will take place next Monday evening at the same time (again, all tickets directly transferable).

School Closed Tomorrow

After assessing the condition of paths and roads in and around school, we have decided to close again tomorrow due to a lack of safe parking and dangerous driving and walking conditions. The areas cleared today on the school site are already icy and slippy and temperatures locally are due to drop severely overnight. The forecast is that temperatures will stay below zero all day tomorrow, making a thaw unlikely. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. 

School Closed Today

Staff worked hard to clear paths and make the school site safe, but surrounding side roads and pavements remain icy so school will be closed today.

Nativity will not go ahead and we will let parents know about new arrangements once the weather has cleared.

Preschool Children Come to Santa’s Rescue!!

The children at Hopscotch received a letter from Santa this morning. He told the children he is not well at the moment and has asked for their help at this very busy time of year. The children have helped decorate his Christmas tree, tried to make him better by being his doctor, prepared food for him and wrapped up lots of presents for lots of girls and boys.

We hope that Father Christmas will get better soon but in the meantime we will continue to be very busy with our Christmas preparations. 

Victorian Fayre

Today the choir visited the Victorian Fayre in Worcester, to entertain visitors and shoppers. They sang fantastically well, to a very appreciative audience who enjoyed their repertoire, which included; ‘Tale as Old as Time’ from Beauty and the Beast, ‘Jingle Bell Rock’, ‘Light a Candle in the Window’, ‘Mistletoe and Wine’, Consider Yourself’ from Oliver, ‘Chim Chimery’ from Mary Poppins and ‘Crash Bang Wallop, What a Picture’ from Chitty Chitty Bang, Bang, and ‘White Christmas’. Thank you to Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Hall who went with the children and to Mr. Lister for preparing the set and for playing the keyboard for them.

 

Christmas Fair

Don’t forget to join us at the the PTA Christmas Fair after school tomorrow! The school choir and the school band will be performing some festive pieces to help get us in the mood, there will be the pamper raffle, refreshments, games and stalls and lots more. Santa will be stopping by to deliver some early presents, so don’t forget to pop in and visit him in his grotto.
