Circus Berzercus

On Thursday 14th December, Circus Berzercus put on a fantastic show for the children in the Early Years. ‘Wallace’ and ‘Gerald’ entertained (and wowed) us with their funny antics, amazing juggling, tuneful bell ringing, incredible illusions and awesome uni-cycling.    Some of the children and staff were even called upon to assist, which they did brilliantly! Everyone was captivated; laughter filled the air and fun was had by all.  Indeed, it was a fabulous way to conclude this year’s Christmas celebrations!

Thank you Circus Berzercus and merry Christmas!

Roman banners

We have been busy designing and sewing Roman banners for our DT project but with a twist… The banner could include a Roman symbol or it could represent us! The designs varied from Roman numerals to initials, hobbies to favourite animals.

It is the first time a lot of the children have learnt to use a running stitch and blanket stitch and it was a bit fiddly at first, but they have got better and better as the week went on. They are all very proud of their finished product and would like to do more sewing in future!

Merry Christmas to all our Year 3 children and their families

We are looking forward to a break with our families and enjoying the festivities.

We have some suggestion of activities you might wish to share as home learning over the holidays.

1.  Watch a Christmas film as a family.

2. Read a Christmas story together.

3. Write a thank you letter to someone who gave you a gift.

4. Go for a walk to get some fresh air, maybe feed the ducks some healthy chopped cabbage leaves.

5. Play a board game with your family.

6. Help out around the house as much as you can.

7. Get to bed early on Christmas Eve! ( and try not to get up too early too.


Foundation Christmas


Firstly, thank you for attending our Nativity performances. It was lovely to perform to such enthusiastic audiences! We hope you agree that all the children were amazing. We are as proud of them all as you must be.

In between the many costume changes this week we have been creating and designing Christmas decorations, threading paper chains (to decorate the hall for next Wednesday’s Christmas lunch) and have set up a Christmas bedroom. We have had many different Santa’s delivering presents and filling stockings as well as children snuggled up in sleeping bags listening to stories!


  • On Tuesday 12th December please come into school dressed in your party clothes.
  • Circus Berzercus are performing for us on Thursday 14th December in the afternoon. All Nursery children are invited to attend this.
  • Please may we have the £1.00 donations for the party week by Monday 11th December. Thank you.
