Shaping Bright Futures Together

Willow - wb 12/12/22

Wow what a busy final week with the added bonus of super excited children and snow!!! A perfect storm for the end of term!!

On Monday, the children were very excited to see a snowy playground and those with wellies had great fun building snowmen and creating snow angels. We should have been going to Experience Christmas at the Chapel but the icy pavements deterred this and instead they came to us on Tuesday morning and retold the Christmas story in a very engaging way. The children were encouraged to be involved in the story and were very grateful for the goodie bag they also received. We all kept nice and warm inside as we created some calendars for the New Year and the children did a great job with these. We then welcomed the Open The Book group from St Barbara's Church who shared some more seasonal stories.

Thursday was party day and much fun was had by both children and staff who enjoyed the day of quizzes, party games, dancing and yummy party food. We also had a very special guest come to visit, taking time out of his super busy schedule at this time of the year. Check out the gallery to see if you guessed who it was correctly!

Friday saw the end of an excellent term of hard work and lots of progress. All the staff who work in Willow Class have thoroughly enjoyed working with you children this term and can’t wait to greet them back in 2023, where more fun learning opportunities await them. We would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year. Thank you for your continuing support in your child's learning.
