Weekly Roundup – Junior School
What a festive week it has been! I’ve been so sorry to miss out on the festive fun whilst I’ve been recovering from COVID, but have certainly felt the Christmas magic which has been sprinkling across St Saviour’s Schools!
Year 3 have done an absolutely fantastic job with their performances of ‘There’s Only One King!’ Mr Beament has told me how wonderful their singing, acting and costumes were for every one of their performances. Very well done Year 3, and thank you to everyone at home who helped with costumes, learning lines and songs (and to the Year 3 staff who gave a little bit of help too 😊). You can see lots of pictures of their performances here, and the recording will go live on our website next week.
Continuing with the festive theme, we have had a visit from Santa this week! You can see some pictures of our special visitor in his grotto here – I know Santa said he felt very at home in his lovely space, and wanted to thank everyone who kindly set it up for him.
Towards the end of the week, the snow was falling and everyone enjoyed a camp fire, smores, a brass band and singing at the PTA mini Christmas Fair. A special mention goes to Kiera, who raised lots of money selling crocheted items. You can see Kiera at her stall here. Thank you also to SG Forest School, who manned the camp fire for us, and of course, our wonderful PTA who organised everything and made it a very fun evening. You can see lots of pictures here.
Also this week:
- Year 5 took a trip to the Holburne Museum to learn about all things Greek – click here for pictures of their day
- Some of the Junior children have been raising money for Dorothy house dressed as elves! Click here and here for pictures
- For details of the Christmas events at St Saviour’s Church, click here
Finally, in advance of the final festive week of term (we are already looking forward to Christmas jumper day on Thursday, Christmas dinner, a short visit to the Church and of course, lots more festive singing), please can we remind parents and families to not stop or park on the yellow zig zag lines outside the schools. This is something which has been causing some difficulties recently. These lines are there for safety reasons and stopping or parking on these lines is prohibited.
