What amazing ‘Christmas Stars’ we have in school!

Our key stage 1 children have just completed entertaining us all so fantastically with their Christmas performances.  We are all extremely proud, as you must be, of the way the children sang, danced and performed with such confidence and enthusiasm.  Their costumes were amazing.  Thank you for all of your support.  What a wonderful way to start our Christmas celebrations. 


Snaith Christmas Market

Saturday 7th December.  The school Christmas choir, will be singing at the opening of Snaith’s Christmas market.  Please meet at the front of the Fire Station at 4:15pm.  School uniform is not required, just a warm coat and possibly a scarf and hat. At the end of the singing please ensure you inform staff that you are taking your child, it is incredibly busy there and we do not want to lose anyone!

Live Green!

Ready for more Green Christmas inspiration? Time to send Christmas cards! OR IS IT? How about sending an ‘e-card’ to your loved ones this Christmas? Not for you? Then how about buying recycled paper Christmas cards or cards made from sustainable forests?  Simply check the reverse of the card before you buy! Otherwise, get crafty! Buy some recycled paper or make your own, it can be totally gorgeous!  This could make a really special card for very special people!  Have you heard of plantable cards?  Look it up! What a great idea! (Remember to try ‘ecosia’ search engine for inspiration!)

Please share your thoughts and ideas with us, this can be done by our school website click on ‘contact us’ and ‘your comments’.

Thank you.

 Miss Howson and Mrs McEnroe.



Yours sincerely
