What a wonderful week we’ve had in Lower school filled with fantastic performances. All the children and staff did so brilliantly. We had singing stars, dancing reindeer and jumping elves. Well done to each and every class! It was great to see so many families coming to enjoy the shows and our winter fair.

Alongside the performances the whole of the early years department went to winter wonderland on Wednesday to enjoy ‘Mr Men’ in the theatre. Thank you to so many families coming along with us, it was a really special trip.

Buttercup class also went ice skating at JW3 in their wheelchairs, such fun!

In upper school it's been a week full of Christmas cheer! Upper school concerts have been a huge success with some wonderful performances and fabulous moments. Upper school students have also been selling hand made craft items in the Winter Fair to raise money for the school charity. One more week to go until the break and all the classes are looking forward to some festive fun next week.
