A Special Delivery

Posted on December 12 2014

Christmas is a magical and enjoyable time in school. Our Christmas elves take great pride in delivering the Christmas post. On my way to the office, I recently observed an excited child posting their cards in our Christmas post box. Having posted the last card, he took a quick look to check noone was watching, opened the post box and proceeded to take out his cards and repeat the whole process again! In assembly I spoke to the children about the importance of addressing the cards so they would reach the correct destination and yesterday I received a card addressed to: Mrs Horrocks, Mrs Horrocks’ office, 1st floor, 27 Oakfield....UK, The World!

At this point in the term, it has also been a real pleasure to watch our pupils perform beautifully in our end of term nativities. Well done to everyone.

A creative delivery of our rich curriculum is evident in my frequent visits to your children’s classrooms. I am struck by the enthusiastic engagement of our pupils and the innovative ways that our teachers present new ideas and concepts. From the ‘we have real snow’ project in Reception, to the amazing fort for the Grand Old Duke of York, being determinedly built by our Kindergarten children. From recreating the masterpiece of Claude Monet in Year 2, to the excellent story writing being read to me with pride by our Year 1 pupils. In the juniors, I watched a lesson on money brought to life when the children assisted Mrs Moores in working out the grand total raised in aid of our Christmas Charity, Francis House….“Five hundred pounds is a lot of money and you have to concentrate when you are counting it.”

I would also like to take this opportunity, in the first of my blogs, to welcome you to our new school website. We hope that parents and visitors alike will find the site a useful communication tool.  

Finally, to all our parents, look out for our Christmas e-card in your inbox over the holidays and have a restful break and a wonderful Christmas.

Mrs Horrocks
