School life continues to be as busy as ever! As I write this I can hear one of our Year 4 classes playing hockey on the playground behind me and all sorts of fun and laughter coming from the hall where we have a group of children engaging in a range of activities with a theatre company aimed at raising confidence and self-esteem. We continue to develop our Forest School area and make sure all classes use it at least once every two weeks. We are determined to go whatever the weather, but this resolve has been severely tested by the rather damp autumn we seem to be having this year. However, children and staff alike have wrapped up well and donned their wellies and had a brilliant time in rain and shine!
Last half term, we had a lovely Harvest celebration, both at Holy Trinity Church and at school and our parents and children kindly donated 168kgs of food for the Fair Frome food bank. Our thoughts are now starting to turn towards Christmas as we have started planning our Christmas productions. The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 3 will be performing a nativity-themed play and the children in Year 2 and year 4 will be performing a carol concert, with the Year 4 concert taking place at Holy Trinity church, where the acoustics will show off their singing to wonderful effect.
