Winter Half Term at Wreay
With the festive season fast approaching, school has been increasingly busy over the last few weeks, with even more fantastic opportunities for trips, activities and showcasing the children's brilliant work upcoming over the next few weeks. Already this half term we have had some brilliant trips out, with Mr Nelson leading expeditions to Dodd Wood, the Year 5 & 6 football team again putting in a high quality performance at their latest tournament and some exceptional results from the Caldew Maths Challenge day.
I am looking forward to the acitivies planned over the next few weeks, particularly the annual school panto, this year's being the Wizard of Oz, which M & M productions always do such an amazing job with, and the PTA Christmas Fayre. The Christmas season also brings us to the KS1 and KS2 performances. Having already seen a glimpse of the preparations being undertaken by all the children and staff, I can promise that this year's productions are going to be better than ever and a credit to all involved.
This week saw members of Year 4 & 5 attend a special service at Carlisle Cathedral, to celebrate their work on a project to raise money for worms to help farming in Bangladesh. The children read some lovely prayers, which I hope they will get to share in VIP Assembly this Friday, and collected a special certificate from the Mayor of Carlisle to thank them for their work. The work form the prject, which all of the class contributed to, can currently be seen displayed at Carlisle Central Library, until Friday 25th November and is well worth a look!
Finally, it was great to see so many parents turn out for parents evening last week. The book fair, as it was last year, was a fantasic success; it was fantastic to have such a great atmosphere in the waiting area, with everyone seeming to thoroughly enjoy the wonderful food laid on by our kitchen staff, who put in a tremendous effort to ensure the evening was a success.
I look forward to seeng you all at the Christmas Fayre on Friday 2nd December!
