So it is with the body of Christ.’
Newsletter 15 – 20th December 2019
Can you believe this is the final week of the Autumn Term and almost Christmas? What a busy term it has been with a huge range of exciting and enriching opportunities for our children including: Forest Schools, maths PARTY, Harvest Festival and Workshops, Cross Country Running, Multi-Sports Festival, Diwali workshops, Cookery classes, Mark making workshops, Lantern workshop, Firewise visit, Friends’ Christmas Fair, Christmas Cheer, Carol Singing and Production to name but a few…
My thanks to all of the staff, parents, governors and children who have worked so hard this term. You are all stars!
That just leaves me to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year with your families. We look forward to welcoming the children back at school on Tuesday 7th January 2020 and we’ll start it all again!
Goodbye Mr White!
It is a sad day for us at Symondsbury as we say so long and farewell to Mr White. We have had a week of surprises and celebrations to mark his 10 years at our school and we wish him lots of luck as he embarks on the next chapter of his adventure at his new school.
Class 1 Nativity
We were all treated to a lovely version of the Nativity story by Reception pupils this week. I was blown away by the confidence and talent of all the children as they sang and performed beautifully. Well done to all and my thanks to Mrs Wills, Mrs Van der Plank and Mrs Edney for all their hard work with the children and creating a memory to last for always.
Thank you to those of you who joined us at our Christingle service on Thursday. It was lovely to have a full church and the atmosphere was very special. Well done to the choir for their beautiful singing which was, once again, commented on by lots of grown-ups.
We all enjoyed a yummy Christmas lunch followed by a Christmas party led by the Friends’ on Wednesday. The children thoroughly enjoyed playing games including wrap the snowman and pin the nose on the elf! My thanks to the Friends’ for organising the party games and we are really grateful for the parents who led the party games brilliantly including some of our newer parents! Thanks to Katie for sourcing and wrapping all the presents – you are all amazing!
Congratulations to Stephen Tattershall, M Tucker and Dawn Scadding who each one at the 50 Club.
After School Club
From the start of next term there will be no After School Club on a Friday. Take up on a Friday is low, therefore we cannot afford to run the club on this day.
A HUGE thankyou to the Chideock Village Trust!
We were absolutely delighted to have received a donation from the Chideock Village Trust which will pay towards for a class set of IPADs to support our learning at school. This incredibly kind donation will make a huge difference to the work that we do as a school and we are very grateful.
