This week has seen the children across our school celebrate the feast of Christmas in a wonderful way reminding us all of the reason why this is such a special time of year for Christians all over the world.
On Tuesday evening our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children performed the Nativity 'Hey Ewe' with wonderful Narration, Acting, Singing and Dancing. On Wednesday our Nursery children performed their Nativity Play. To see these children just 3 and 4 years old up on stage speaking and singing brought tears to the eyes of many parents and teachers! On Thursday we celebrated Mass with our Parish and our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 pupils gave us the opportunity to be still and reflect on the joy of this season with a service of song and scripture readings. The Narrators, Actors and Singers did a marvellous job - the singing sounded like a choir of Angels.
I am very proud of all the children at St Mary's. I feel very blessed to be the head teacher of this school and so, so grateful for the hard work and dedication of the staff team who work here.
