Despite the restrictions we have managed to hold our online Nativity and our Christingle Service at St Peters Church. The children have enjoyed a Christmas themed Science Day and a Christmas themed maths day. Who knew that designing a pulley to help Santa up the chimney could be so much fun?
The children had their Christmas dinner and parties, and we had a special visitor arrive on his sleigh to give the children their presents.
Our Eagles class went on a school trip to Bristol, travelling by train and ferry. They visited the SS Great Britain and saw the Clifton Suspension bridge, all to support their learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The whole school went to the Everyman theatre pantomime and had a fantastic time.
Although it was a shame that the school choir couldn’t perform at the Village Hall 100 years celebrations, cancelled because of covid, we were able to record a performance for the parents and the choir performed at our Nativity service. The whole school completed an art project entitled ‘Siddington through the ages’ where the children used old photographs of Siddington village and an embroidery from the 1800s as a stimulus for their work.
Happy New Year from us all!
Mrs Cook – Headteacher
