Tomorrow evening (Tuesday) is the first of the two performances of our Christmas Concert. Children in Reception and Year 1 should arrive between 6.00pm and 6.10pm and go to their classroom to get changed.
Children in Mrs Radcliffe’s and Mrs Cranmer’s classes should arrive by 6.20pm, and go straight to their classroom. They should come to school dressed in their ‘costume’ which is a Christmas jumper or party clothes. (Please no football tops!)
On Wednesday children in Mrs Radcliffe and Mrs Cranmer’s classes should come to school in their normal uniform and bring their ‘costume’ with them, to change into after lunch.
As you are aware tickets are limited for both performances, and will be collected at the door. Please make sure you remember to bring them with you. The seats will be set out to try and leave space between each family, and we are asking that all adults wear a mask. In line with Government guidance, we are also requesting that you ‘know before you go’ and take a Lateral Flow Test before attending.
The concert will start at 2.00pm on Wednesday and will last around 30 minutes. At the end of the concert we will draw our Sleigh of Christmas, so it is not yet too late to buy a ticket. Children will be able to go home with you, if you wish, at the end of the concert, or they can stay in school until 3.30pm. If a child does not have a parent attending the afternoon performance they will need to stay in school until 3.30pm.
On Thursday afternoon we are having our Christmas party, and children can come to school in party clothes. When choosing their clothes please keep in mind that the children will be running around outside at playtimes, so will need warm clothes and sensible shoes.
Finally on Friday we will be having a non uniform day / Christmas jumper day. We are asking for a donation of £1, which will be donated to Save the Children. For more information on this charity visit https://www.savethechildren.org.uk.
On Friday we will be having a fun day in school, but ask that the children do NOT bring in games or toys from home. We have plenty in school that they can play with, and past experience has shown us that children become upset when a vital part of the game gets lost in school.
