Before we look ahead to a festive last week of term I wanted to thank everyone who helped to make the Christmas Fair such a great success last Friday. The Year 5 and 6 children produced some amazing games and the friends worked hard to make it a great success. Special mention to Laura Singleton who organised the whole event brilliantly. We will let you know a grand total as soon as we have it.
Also thank you to everyone who supported our Nativity performances last week. The hard work of our children and staff helped to produce one of the best nativity plays ever!
On Monday we will celebrate our final super pupils of 2016. The children from Ribblesdale and Dentdale will hold the first Christmas party of the week in the afternoon.
On Tuesday Airedale and Bishopdale will be having their party in the morning. At lunchtime the children will all enjoy their Christmas lunch complete with crackers! During the afternoon on Tuesday the Choir will walk up to the local Methodist Chapel where they will entertain the elderly at their Christmas lunch. The choir have got a very busy day on Tuesday because they will be back in the Hall to join the Orchestra and perform their Christmas Concert to friends and family starting at 6pm
On Wednesday we will hold our very special Christmas Hopes worship time when all of the children come together to light candles and share their classes hopes for the world. In the afternoon Nidderdale and Swaledale will enjoy their party in the hall.
On Thursday morning you are warmly invited to join us for our Carol service at St John’s Church starting at 10.30am. The theme this year is a modern retelling of the journey to Bethlehem. After lunch on Thursday Wharfedale/ Wensleydale and Coverdale will enjoy the final party of the year
The last day of term is the Christmas Jumper Day to raise awareness of the work of Save the Children. After lunch we will gather together to sing carols around the tree and the Chritsmas holidays will officially start at 2.15pm.
Our training day in on Tuesday 3rd January and we will be reopening for Children on Wednesday 4th January.
Have a wonderful, happy and safe Christmas.
