Message from Mrs. Castell
I was so proud this week to watch the performances from our EYFS children. Their confidence has grown so much in the last term and we are all so proud of them! At a time of uncertainty, their enthusiasm really gives us all a boost.
At the time of writing we are preparing for WISPA's Christmas Market this afternoon and I would like to thank WISPA again for the many hours they have put in to make the event happen safely and to encourage support from local businesses. We are very grateful to the students from Writtle University College who have offered to help out at the Christmas Market. If you can help, particularly with the clearing up, we would be very grateful!
The WISPA Christmas craft event on Wednesday was great fun and it was lovely to see the children together creating a beautiful decoration. WISPA also funded yesterday's pantomime from The Rainbow Theatre Company. Their performance of Dick Whittington was fantastic (oh yes it was!) and the children really enjoyed joining in! WISPA are also working flat out on our library refurbishment which will inspire a love of reading for our current children and for those who join us in the years to come.
If you went to the Christmas Tree Festival at the weekend you will have seen our beautiful entry, All Good Things Come in Trees, designed by Mrs Winsley and Mrs Stobbie using forest school decorations created by the children. We were so proud to receive the "Bishop's Choice" award from the Bishop of Chelmsford, who awarded our tree as his favourite of the festival.
All clubs have now finished for the term. The children will have an assembly next Thursday to introduce them to the new Fencing club which is on offer from January. Booking for Spring Term clubs is now open - these are for Years 1 and 2 only. Please take a look at the timetable on our website and book with our sports professionals directly or, for staff clubs, via the ParentMail form. Please make a note of club dates in your diary.
Have a lovely weekend.
