Dear parents and carers,
I can’t believe I am writing this already but yes ……
1 MORE SLEEP AND IT’S DECEMBER
and what a fun packed December we have in store. The first thing, each week, each class will decorate their classroom windows with pictures from a famous Christmas song; why not walk around the school perimeter and play Guess The Carol (we will display the title at the end of each the week).
We have lots of events and activities planned in school but here are some important December dates for your diary:
Carols In The Cold – we want to keep the tradition of the children performing for you at Christmas and we are pleased to announce that the children will be performing a (short) Christmas sing-a-long for you to come and watch, in the afternoon. However, this year, guidelines are very clear and very strict. In order for us to make this happen there are some rules we must put in place. The sing-a-long will be held in the playground so you will need to wrap up and if the weather is too rainy, we will postpone it to the following day. The children will perform in their class bubbles and the other class, in their year group, will perform at the same time. In order to be able to adhere to social distancing, there will be a maximum of two adults per pupil allowed to come and watch. We cannot accommodate younger siblings as we will not have the space for push chairs as it will already be difficult to ensure that spacing is correct and that everyone will be able to see and young children will not be able to walk around as this is unfair when people are trying to socially distance. However, it is a chance for you to come and watch your child sing with their friends and get into the Christmas spirit. Further details will be sent out in a separate letter but if you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am sure that you will agree that this looks like a fun filled December and we are looking forward to it as much as the children – the only thing to make it even better would be an appearance from a very ‘special visitor’ but we know how busy he is at this time of year. Fingers crossed everyone!
Well, early to bed tonight everyone, December is going to be a very busy month
