Scripture Union Christmas Workshop

The Scripture Union will present a short workshop to each of the P6 classes. This will take place on Friday 13th December between break and lunch. There will be no religious observance and the emphasis is on Christmas traditions and what Christians believe to be the origins of the Christmas story.

I attach a summary from Scripture Union-

‘A journey through the Christmas story from the Bible, exploring the events of the first Christmas and why it is so important for Christians – including quizzes, video, storytelling, and the chance to ask questions about some Christmas traditions we have today.’

If you do not wish your child to take part, please contact the school office and alternative provision will be made for him/her.

The following timings are anticipated:

P6F-      10:45- 11:30

P6M-     11:35-12:20

Squishy squad! 

Eat sleep squish repeat 

 On the 10th of December we are selling de-stress balls in the top area. All the de-stress balls are 50p or a pound so no need to bring in a five pound note. There will be a DIY stall for people to draw their own faces on the squishies. There are the colours pink, gold, blue, yellow, purple, green and orange to choose from. Our squishies are made by filling a balloon with flour or rice. We also recommend not to squish them too hard otherwise they may burst, however, none of ours have burst yet. All the money will be going to our class charity and a P7 trip.
