Dear Parents and Carers

Every year it always feels like Christmas is just round the corner when the KS2 children have their annual visit to the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle for their Christmas production. This year’s presentation of ‘Snow Queen’ was as magical as ever – even finishing with a slight sprinkling of snow as we applauded at the end, to really get us in the festive mood. You should all be very proud of your children as they behaved impeccably during the visit, representing the school proudly. 

Back in school, the EYFS classes have been showing us their wonderful acting, singing and dancing skills with their nativity production, shown to family and friends on Wednesday and Thursday. The KS1 children have a lot to live up to with their version of the Christmas story for us next week but I have no doubt they will rise to the occasion!  

Many of our children have also been out and about in Middlewich, admiring the delightful art work done for the United Reformed Church and the choir entertained the crowds at Tesco on Tuesday, singing a selection of Christmas songs. Thank you to all the adults in school and parents who have supported us in helping to provide these varied and enriching experiences for our children.  

This afternoon was Tommy Thumbs Christmas fair. I hope many of you were able to come along and get a bit of early (or should that be late?!) Christmas shopping done. 

Well, after such a busy week you might expect that it would be a little quieter in school but of course at Cledford there is always something else exciting happening. As well as our KS1 Christmas production, the arts ambassadors will be meeting with Miss Parton to share ideas and make plans for exciting activities for next year and Tommy Thumbs will be putting on their music concert in our school hall.

Another Cledford annual tradition is our carol service at St Michael’s on the last day of term. If you able to help walk the children to church on the afternoon of Wednesday 21st December this will be much appreciated; please complete the slip in the newsletter and return to school.

Watch out for Santa’s sleigh next week – I believe he may be passing through Middlewich, checking out his route for 24th!

 Have a lovely weekend
