Week ending 18.12.2020
Such a lovely week to end the term!
On Monday, we had the world premiere of 'The Nativity 2020'. The children were amazing and sang beautifully - we are very proud of them!
On Tuesday we made beautiful Christingles and had a lovely Christingle service via Zoom, in the afternoon. The children also completed their learning journeys for the term, saying what they have enjoyed and what they could be better at.
We have made Christmas trees out of fir cones and cardboard roles and a hanging decoration for the tree. The children have made a calendar with their self-portrait and one with their Nativity picture on it. Their symmetrical decorating has been spectacular! They have also made a pop-up Christmas card and a crown to wear for their Christmas dinner.
On Thursday, the last day of term, we heard loud stamping on the roof! Mrs. Lewis rushed in to say she went out to investigate, only to be blinded with a flash of light and covered in snow. She found a pack of Christmas cards on the ground, addressed to Willows! Father Christmas had replied to our letters!
As if that wasn't enough excitement, we then went on the pitch to see Rohan and Ruben's two adorable donkeys and the boys answered the children's questions.
Whilst we were admiring the donkeys, Mrs. Lewis had discovered a sack full of presents for Willows in the car park. Father Christmas had also sent a video to the class: it was amazing how he knew what we had been doing in class!
The PTA had kindly made up party bags for each child and they happily tucked in whilst watching a charming and amusing animation of The Nativity.
Thank you very much to all the children and parents who gave me such lovely presents - I am very touched and will certainly enjoy them!
I will be posting Christmas stories on our web page on the Elham site (once I have finished writing my Christmas cards!), so do look out for them.
I hope you have a wonderful, magical Christmas and I look forward to seeing you next year!
