Today we received a lovely parcel from our local retirement living estate, Oakfields in Lychpit. Inside were some Christmas cards and some beautiful knitted Christmas decorations which we shared out amongst every class before popping the rest on our main indoor tree situated in our school library. The children were so grateful as they are beautiful - each one is now sitting proudly for all of the children to see. A huge thank you from us all.
We usually pop down with some of our choir to sing carols but we couldn't do that this year for obvious reasons! I instead tasked our children in Years 1, 2, 4 and 5 with a very special job which is nearly complete. They have been busy creating a special Christmas pack for each resident at Oakfields containing Christmas cracker letters (from Y5), alternative funny 12 days of Christmas poems/songs (from Y4) and Christmas pictures (from Y1and 2) . I am popping to the shops this afternoon to get some chocolate treats for each of the packs too. Once all ready, we will drop the packs down to them, ready for quarantining, before the our elders can open them up and enjoy what's inside.
Just to keep you in the loop, Year 3 have another special job I have tasked them with which I will relay to you all at a later date. Years 1 and 6 are also busy writing and drawing to one another and will share these safely within school too.
We are trying our best to bring cheer to as many people as we can this Christmas.
