School week filled with celebrations of Jesus' birth and phenomenal running grit!
The Christmas run in really is filled with special events and occasions which showcase the brilliance and talent of our pupils and staff.
Our EYFS pupils performed their wonderful Nativity and it was a real pleasure to hear them sing, see them act and share in their smiles in front of their parents and relatives. Well done to the pupils and staff for pulling off two great shows. Feedback from parents was also extremely positive.
On the same day, roughly forty of our pupils competed in the East Norfolk Cross Country race from Years 3 to 6. In extremely inclement weather, all our pupils showed such determination to finish so strongly. I was so proud of them all, as was Miss. Studley in her beaming fluorescent yellow hat. In three year groups, we were fortunate enough to have someone finish inside the top ten, meaning they have qualified for the Norfolk stage at Holkham Hall. Well done to these three pupils. Good luck in the next phase up.
The children's Christmas dinner was also held this week and proved popular. It was great to see so many pupils tucking in and enjoying their time together on the tables. Christmas cheer was in full swing.
This week's Team points was won by Hawkers - well done to that House Team. Attendance this week was won by Year 3 with 98.33%.
A big thank you must also go to the choir, who sang at John Anderson Court on Friday for the elderly residents. It was very well received and once again showed Homefield Primary School being community spirited.
Next week, we have the KS1 and KS2 performances on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Please ensure you have got your tickets and bring them on the day, this is to ensure we remain safe in line with fire regulations with regards to the numbers in the Hall. This is the main reasons for having two performance times. I also must stress that the school distributes tickets on a two per family basis. Once all parents have tickets, there may be some left over which we will give to those on our waiting lists.
If you would also like to see Nursery's Christmas Tree design, it is on show at Great Yarmouth Minster's Christmas Tree Festival over the next week. The theme is very current and reflects the movement to reduce the plastics polluting the oceans.
Have a lovely weekend Christmas shopping.
