Class 11 went to perform a carol concert at Trinity Church this week. We had a great time! They must have liked us as we were rewarded with juice and a biscuit!
* Ding dong merrily on high
* It was on a starry night
* See him lying on a bed of straw
* The holly and mistletoe
* We wish you a Merry Christmas
What is your favourite Christmas carol and why?

Class 11 had a great monring today when we took part in some role play imagining that we were at a Buddhist wedding celebration. We all dressed up in our best clothes. Milly and Ben were the bride and groom – they looked great and took their role very seriously! Some monks came to our ceremony and we had to treat them with great respect! Afterwards we had a Thai feast, made by Jasmines Mum. Thank you!
I can’t wait to read the writing you have done about this Class 11 – I htink it will be great!

Year 5 have spent a lot of time writing their own childrens story about a mother who is trying to get her baby to go to sleep. However, the animals keep waking the baby up! Once the children had written their books they spent a great deal of time and effort on presenting their work in the style of a book.
We visited Reception Class, where Year 5 “buddied up” with a Reception child. Y5 loved sharing their work, and Reception listened carefully!
