    Christmas decorations with a difference!

    The eco-warriors have been busy creating edible decorations for birds to enjoy during this festive period. They threaded cheerios onto wire and made them into interesting shapes. Then they found suitable spots around our beautiful grounds to hang them. We are proud to have such an enthusiastic group of children caring for nature and the world around us.

    Posting our letters to Santa!

    There was huge excitement in Wonwell Class on Friday as we used all our best letter writing skills to write to Santa in the North Pole. Everyone remembered to start by sending Santa a nice message before very politely asking for just one present. Excitement built as we headed off to the Post Office to buy our stamps, singing Christmas songs and carols as we waited our turn. Then it was off to the post box. Here  we had to make sure our letters went with a real 'whoosh'- this was done by closing our eyes and sending good wishes to everyone in the whole world as we popped them into the letter box. What a wonderful way to end the week. Click here for more photos:
