End of Autumn

Wow term 1 is finished already! We have had an extremely busy term, filled with lots of learning. This last 2 weeks has been full of Christmas fun, with Christmas Fair activities, Christingle making, Christmas party, filming our Christmas video, watching other Christmas performances on video and December birthday parties.


A huge congratulations and well done all of Mars class for their parts in the Christmas video. You all worked really hard to learn the songs and words. All the grown ups in Mars class are very proud of you. Check your email for the link to our video!


Have a look at some of the photos from our last week. I hope you have a fantastic Christmas holiday. See you all in January!
