Pre-school Christmas Parties

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.

Christmas Crafts

Well we’ve had our Advent Celebration Mass, Panto, Christmas lunch, Christmas Jumper Day, Christmas plays, Christmas Enterprise Fayre and Christmas parties (last one today) – now it’s time to get the glitter out and make Christmas crafts. Some of the things the children have chosen to do – Reindeer dust, Paper plate Angels, Christmas tree decoration – we’ve been busy, busy, busy!!!! and we still have Christmas cards to do.


The Nativity

Well done to Pre school and reception class for your nativity performances- you were all brilliant. Thank you to everyone who supported us xx
The Nativity School nativity play
Following our fantastic performances of ‘The Nativity’ with reception class – it is regret I am having to post this. Mr Naughton stated in the school newsletter that ” Under no circumstances must photographs be placed on Facebook or other social media sites. If parents / carers cannot follow this request
and any photographs were to appear on a social media site then all photography will be banned in the future”.
Unfortunately it has come to our attention that some parents have upoloaded videos and photos of their children as well as other children in the school and Pre-school.
Safeguarding children is fundamental to everything we do and it is essential that everyone considers this and acts responsibly. So I am asking if you have photos and/or videos uploaded with not only your child on, please remove them. If you have any comments or question, please contact me.

Christmas Lunch and Christmas Jumper Day

Thank you to everyone for your kind donations. It was also Christmas lunch – which was delicious. There was lots of Christmas songs and crackers too

First Autumn half term at Pre-school

Every day is different at Little Hearts. Some days we are in the classroom – listening to stories and acting them out, being creative, designing and building structures and painting masterpieces. 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….

Bonjour Sacred Heart!

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!
