What a lovely Christmas lunch we had today- it was yummy! Thank you to Miss Robertson and Mrs Greenwood for cooking our lovely lunch as well as decorating the tables beautifully. We listened to Christmas carols, pulled our crackers and enjoyed traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings with festive biscuits and ice-cream to follow. 

On Tuesday our KS2 choir visited Meadow Bank Nursing Home. They sang festive hymns and songs and entertained the residents with their movement and actions too! They took each resident a handmade Christmas card and handed them out. The children and the residents had a drink together before singing traditional Christmas songs whilst the residents played along with musical instruments.

Thank you for joining us in the school hall to think about the true meaning of Christmas before following the donkey down the lane to church. This was followed by our special Christingle Service. The children had been very busy in the morning making their Christingles and our thanks goes to the Co-op in Castleton for donating half the oranges, the raisins, sweets and sticks and to Tesco in Rochdale for donating the rest of the oranges! The service was filled with hymns and poems and it was beautiful when the lights went out to see all the candles flickering around church!

 

Thank you to church for the mulled wine and to the PTFA for the potato hash- compliments to the chef were given by many!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Each week we will unwrap a gift of advent as we wait for the coming of Jesus. We will share hope, joy, peace and love as we celebrate together!

Thanks to all the children who wore their ties to school on 22/11/18; we had some very funky ones! Thanks also to all those who donated chocolate in aid of the PTFA Christmas Fair; the chocolate tombola stall will be amazing!

Remembrance- Children from every class have worked hard to produce remembrance crosses. They are on display in our outside reflective area. Our 100 crosses mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. We will remember them.
