A symbol of hope rides high above Homefield!
I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for this above photograph this week. It was meant to be.
This week has seen a continuation of the Christmas spirit with EYFS and KS1 hosting a Nativity Day and preparing something special for their parents. KS2 are also preparing their own contributions for Christmas adapting all their efforts to meet with COVID guidelines. We all hope the finished pieces will be well received.
We also had the children's Christmas lunch and this was the first year we had whole classes together eating in the Hall. We held three separate sittings and this worked really well. Christmas hats were being worn, crackers were being pulled and festive music was played in the background. All enjoyed themselves and we captured some fantastic moments on camera. We have been so pleased with how many pupils are taking the opportunity to have a school-prepared meal and with how many pupils have opted to get tuck each week. I will say that with any new online booking systems, there may always be teething snags, but rest assured we always endeavour to avoid these. If mistakes are made, we will always do our best to put them right.
The location of our Christmas Tree was decided upon and it is on the edge of the playing field. It does have lights, which are solar powered, so they light up when it gets darker. We felt there was no point in putting it inside, as the whole school would not get to see the beauty of it. Classes have been individually decorated as usual.
Over the remaining two weeks, we hope to finalise the Nativity and class festive elements and share them with parents.
It has been a difficult year for all of us and I just wanted to, again, extend my thanks to you all for supporting us to ensure we keep your children safe and we continue to help your child learn as much as they can.
Have a great weekend everyone!
