Our Christmas events have begun delightfully with a charming Year 1 Nativity in the School Hall on Thursday afternoon. The children did wonderfully well to learn their lines and collaborated beautifully in the songs. It was lovely to see so many parents, siblings, and grandparents supporting the children. I am very much looking forward to our Reception Nativities next week. On Thursday morning our Choirs visited Barford Court Care Home to sing and talk to the residents. Not only did they bring great delight but they thoroughly enjoyed the experience and benefited enormously from giving to others.
Christmas is a wonderful time for children and for the parents of children who so delight in it. Wonder, gifts and decorations and Christmas trees are a part of it but it is also important that children know what we are really looking forward to at Advent. To that end, Mr Holt gave a very pertinent and beautifully crafted Assembly on Thursday. I hope that the children will spare a thought over the coming weeks for the idea that Christmas is about giving. It is also a time to remember how very lucky we all are.
I look forward to seeing many of you at our Courtyard Carols this evening, and at our Carol Service at All Saints on Thursday afternoon.
