It is getting rather festive in school now! Three of our year groups are very busy rehearsing their Christmas plays and the other two year groups are working hard preparing for their carol concerts. The children love performing for their parents and grandparents and one of the privileges of being the headteacher is that I get to see all the performances and can really see how much the children grow in confidence during their time at Trinity. This week our Early Years classes have been out to sing their songs in the community too. Rainbow class visited Critchill Court and Sunshine went to Greenhill Grange. The children also took Christmas cards they had made for the residents and were treated to a drink and a biscuit after their performances so I think it was a very positive experience all round!
Some of our Year 4 children took part in a carol concert at Wells Cathedral earlier this week and all of Year 4 will be singing at Holy Trinity Church alongside the Good Afternoon Choir at their carol concert.
Our Christmas Fair, organised and run by the wonderful parents’ association, The TSA, is on Saturday 8th December. As usual, there will be lots of stalls to keep the children busy with different Christmas crafts, as well as refreshments and a wide variety of trade stalls with beautiful Christmas gifts for sale.
We round off our Christmas fun with a few treats for the children in the last week of term. Christmas dinner is the most popular hot meal of the year, with nearly every child having it. We are lucky enough to have a theatre company coming to school to perform for the children and if we are very fortunate we may even get a visit from a very special person … hopefully he won’t be too busy to fit us in!
