On Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon we held our end of term Christmas parties. The children danced, played ‘pass the parcel’, ‘musical statues’, we did the ‘hokey, cokey’ and their favourite – ‘The Farmers in his den’. We had party food too!!! All of the children received a gift from Pre-school and The Friends of Sacred Heart and Little Hearts.

Sometimes we are in school using the soft play equipment or having fun with Mr Evans during hall time. We could be outside exploring the school grounds on a nature walk or visiting church looking for and talking about shapes we see. Here is a selection of some of the things we get up to….
Today, we have been celebrating a day of Modern Foreign Languages with our whole school French Day! All classes have been celebrating the culture and food of France, and we even enjoyed a real treat at lunchtime with our amazing French cuisine! The kitchen have been kind enough to prepare cordon bleu and beef bourginon, among other things, which the children thoroughly enjoyed. Salut!
