Once again it is that time of year and, although it will be different, we are working hard for it to be just as special! We have put up our Christmas lights and we’re determined to have some fun in these challenging times. We have stringent Covid secure measures in place and therefore to limit the risk of any infection coming into school we have to make some changes this year.
We kindly ask you not to send any Christmas cards and any presents to school this year due to the associated risks of Covid-19. We are pleased to provide you with the following details for our Christmas celebrations:
Christmas Dinner Day
School Christmas lunch will be on Thursday 17th December. Please advise staff by tomorrow Friday 27rdNovember if you packed lunch child would like to have the meal at a cost of £2.20 by e-payment.
The Christmas nativity will be a traditional nativity this year involving all pupils from Reception to Year 6 and you will receive a movie link to view it, as unfortunately we can’t have an audience this year. But it will be just as good watching it in the comfort of your own home. Nursery are also preparing a little treat!
Christmas Jumper Day
As part of national ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ children are invited to wear a Christmas jumper to school on Friday 11th December 2020. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, you can ‘join in’ by wearing anything Christmassy, for example you could wear, bobbles, badges, boppers or tinsel in your hair. This event is run annually by Save the Children and we will have an open bucket collection on that morning on the gates.
Christmas Party day for all classes will be on Tuesday 15th December 2020. Children are welcome to come to school in their party clothes on this day. Please remember that children will be playing out in their party clothes, so make sure that they are warm enough for the winter weather.
We will play traditional party games including pass the parcel, musical statues, and each class will party only with the children in their bubble.
Please note that school will close on Friday 18th December 2020.We will then re-open for the start of term on Monday 4th January 2021.
We hope you find this information useful. If there is anything else, you would like to know please ask – we are here to help at the gate every day!
From us all at Thorney Close Primary School we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
