Week Ending 6th December 2013

On Wednesday, children from the Main School walked to St Mary's Church after lunch, for a Christingle Service. In the morning, each child had made their own Christingle, and learned about the significance of the orange (that represents the world), the candle (that represents Jesus, the light of the world) and the dried fruit sticks (that represent the fruits of the Earth and the four seasons).

The children enjoyed an entertaining talk from the vicar about the meaning of Christmas, and sang some Christmas carols.  They were praised by the vicar for their very good behaviour whilst visiting the church. Each of the Christingle candles were lit, and the Church glowed with bright light.

Thursday was the day for a full Christmas concert run through. The children sang and spoke clearly, and are word perfect. Please remember to get your tickets for the performance of your choice, as a ticket is required for entry.

Friday is EBA Enterprise Fair, from 3-4pm, in the Hall.  The Year 4 and 5 children are very excited, so please come along and do some Christmas shopping, and enjoy some refreshments.
