Week beginning 16th December 2019 - SPECIAL WEEK OF CHRISTMAS!

Christmas is well and truly here and we’ve had lots of lovely events this week and there are more to come next week.  The school choir had a lovely time performing to the residents of Japonica court on Tuesday morning and brought Christmas joy to all.  Secret Santa was run by the PTA so some of you have a little treat coming under the tree.  We all enjoyed our Christmas lunch on Friday.


Next week is our official Christmas week, children can choose to wear Christmas clothing in place of a uniform item, jumpers, t-shirts, festive socks, tights, jewellery, hair accessories and nail varnish!


Our events are:

Monday: Panto Trip, Jack and the Beanstalk.

In years past the collection of children from school gets very hairy, to avoid this we are doing the following:

  • It is too dark for staff to see parents on the way into school so all children are to be collected from 5pm onwards from the school hall.
  • Parents come in and out of the hall via the office or entrance by Year 2 classroom
  • Children will be delivered by coach to the hall 
  • No parents or cars to enter the car park so the coaches can get in and out
  • No bags, book bags or bottles will be brought home on Monday, just collect your child. 


For the children not going to Panto, hometime will be at 3.20pm on the side playground at 3.20pm


Tuesday and Wednesday: YR/1/2 Nativity

There are two performances of the KS1 and Reception Nativity on Tuesday 17th December at 2.15pm and Wednesday 18th December at 9.30am.   Every family is welcome to come and enjoy the event but please be aware that we have a limited capacity for the school hall and we will only be able to seat up to four members from a family. Entry is via the school hall door, down the drive.


Thursday: Preschool and Nursery Classes Sing-along at 11.30am

All parents are invited to come to their child’s class and enjoy a Christmas sing song and treat. 


Thursday: Choir performance at Abbey Wood Nursing Home


Thursday: School disco

Disco Tickets cost £2 and should be bought in advance to take advantage of the cheaper price; it is £2.50 for a ticket on the day.

  • Reception, Y1 and Y2: 3.45-4.45pm (bring your clothes to school to change)
  • Year 3-6: 5-6pm

Entry and exit via the school hall.

No cars to enter the car park so all safe for the children walking in and out of the disco.


Friday: Carol Concert

9am at St Peters Church the choir and school will be singing carols and telling the Christmas story.  This is a whole school event and all parents are welcome to attend, the more the merrier.


Morning Activities: Christmas activities for the whole school as all classes mix up together

Notice of new yellow lines along road outside the school

Please be aware that, due to cars parking on both sides of the road outside the school at drop off/pick up time, the Council have decided to extend the existing double yellow lines (no waiting at any time) on Ash Church Road.  Please take note of the new restrictions and leave extra time to get in/collect from school.


Eco Points

This week is Not Wasting Energy Week – keeping heating off when not needed, opening windows if the heating is off, keeping doors closed at breaktime to keep the heating in, lights off when not needed, computers off when not needed.

Hopefully this important learning will help the children to reduce our wasted energy and yours at home.
