Dear Parents and Carers,
The whole school have made decorations and they are hanging beautifully throughout the hall. Mr Davies and I put them up throughout the week. Mr Davies chose to put the Reception Class glitter stars up. After putting them up he had just as much glitter on him as the stars!
We also were delighted to have Mr Hanratty join Class 6 this morning for a Maths Challenge morning. We asked if he would be happy to hang a blue bauble on the school tree and he was delighted to.
I really enjoyed reading a Christmas story to the whole of KS1 in the sports Hall on Wednesday. The children at St George’s are an absolute joy! The story I read was ‘The Empty Stocking’ by Richard Curtis and Rebecca Cobb. Gracie and James Braund absolutely love this and I would recommend it.
