It has been a lovely end to 2018 at Strawberry Fields and a fun week of festivity.
This week, we have enjoyed nativities performed by both Foundation Stage and Key Stage One. Foundation Stage performed 'I Spy Christmas'. It was fantastic, the children were so confident and read their lines brilliantly. Key Stage One's show was 'Tinsel and Teatowels'. Every single child came onstage and read some lines or performed in a song or dance. Even standing at the back of the hall, it was possible to hear every single line of dialogue.
It was truly moving to see the talents, hard work and progress of some of our youngest children across both performances. Thank you to all staff who worked hard to teach lines, songs and dances, and produce scenery, props and costumes.
On Thursday, many of our children enjoyed a traditional Christmas dinner in the hall and then on the final day, we had our carol service at St. Mary's. The children once again did themselves proud, with beautiful singing that was so loud it drowned out the backing tracks! It is clear 'Love Shone Down' is a new school favourite - the children nearly lifted off the church's roof on the chorus of this one.
Finally, thank you to all our staff for working so hard all term, and thank you to all our children for maintaining their high standards of work and behaviour right to the end.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all our children, families and staff, as well as everyone in our wider community.
