Pensioners Christmas Tea!
What an enormously proud day with the amazing Carol Service presented by KS2 in the morning at the chapel and then we opened our doors to local pensioners for a Christmas tea in the afternoon! Our hosts from years 5 and 6 did an amazing job in chatting to our visitors and showing them around the school as well. They were polite, friendly and although a bit shy to begin, even managed in the end to crack a few jokes (I believe the sheep who crossed the road was a highlight!)
Such an important thing to do in linking the older and younger generations of the community together aand it was enjoyed by young and old alike!
Parents should feel enormously proud of their children for this and we had many positive comments from our guests in our comments book and in person as well.
"I feel honoured and privileged to be invited here... I really do" Allan Nicholls.
(It was lovely to see you too Allan!)
"Thank you for inviting us; it has been lovely and the children great. Very helpful and polite. It brings back memories of when I was here as a child - very different indeed" V. Neal
"What a lovely afternoon we are having and lots of people being so very kind and helping everyone" Debbie Smith
They loved looking around the school although our pupil volunteers struggled to keep them altogether!!
There was not a dry eye in the house when 4+ and KS1 came in to sing some songs. It was a real highlight of the afternoon and our guests were visibly moved at our wonderful children.
