What an exciting week it has been at Tardebigge. Although we haven’t been able to do our usual Christmas performance, we worked really hard to bring you a little Christmas magic from year 4. The children wrote all their own words, and did their own pictures to support their retelling of the Christmas story. If you haven’t already please head over to the class dojo page and watch it. It was amazing that we got every child involved in what has been such a tricky time, and we couldn’t be prouder of how beautifully they worked together. Well done year 4.
Our party day on Wednesday was wonderful. We started the day with a great Christmas quiz, giving the children time to work with the children on their new tables. In 'Catchphrase' style the children saw a part of the picture and had to a guess what it was while the picture slowly revealed. It certainly got more difficult as they pictures went on, but the children persevered and were very creative with their answers.
We then went on a rather wet adventure to stumble across Father Christmas in Miss Hill’s barn. Father Christmas answered any questions the children had and kindly gave them all a gift. It was great opportunity for the children to question the new rules in place; particularly when Father Christmas was asked if he needed a substantial meal with any alcohol they left him!
It was such a special treat for us all. The children even had a squash and biscuit too, before their muddy walk back to school. A huge thank you to Miss Hill for giving Father Christmas a place to stay warm and dry so our children could visit him.
In the afternoon, we played a range of party games. Including pass the parcel and musical statues. We had cake, treats and crackers from FOTS which were truly appreciated by all.
We will be saying goodbye to Mrs Allmont this week as she starts her maternity leave. We wish her all the best with the new baby and we know she will keep in touch.
In January we look forward to welcoming Mrs Nasta and Miss Secker to our team, they have been in school over the last few weeks getting to know the children.
We have certainly felt lucky this term that we’ve managed to stay in school for the whole time! Thank you to all the parents for your support in this ever changing time. We wish you all the merriest of Christmases and a wonderful 2021. Please stay safe this holiday and we look forward to seeing you all in January.
Mrs Horton, Mrs Feighoney, Mrs Allmont, Miss Cowles.
