Thank you to all the school community who donated food for our collection in the Autumn term. The Mini Vinnies collected all the food and made a note of the items donated from each class. The winning class was Year 5 with 56 items donated who received an extra break in the final week of term. Well done! The Mini Vinnies met Frances who collects food for Stanley Food Bank. We brought all the food over to Church where we helped Frances count and move the food into her car to drop off. This will make a real difference to lots of families this Christmas.
This week, courtesy of the Friends, all of the children have had Christmas hats to decorate ready for their Christmas meal. Year 6 took this very seriously and have spent a lot of time perfecting their crowns for the occasion. I think you can all agree with me, they look fantastic.
Year 6 put up their Christmas tree this week and were welcomed with a great surprise on Tuesday morning. An elf had been delivered in the night and was wrapped up in our tree. One lucky child was able to open him off to see who he was. He still doesn’t have a name and we’re not yet sure on whether he’s going to be a good elf or a naughty elf. Let’s hope he’s a good elf.
A big well done to the seven Year 6 boys who represented Sacred Heart on Thursday. The boys played in two matches against Lobley Hill and Washingwell. The boys played some fantastic football and won their match against Lobley Hill 2-0. They drew their second match 2-2 despite dominating the game and missing a penalty. The boys will come together again in the spring term when they plat their second round of matches. Let’s keep the undefeated streak going boys!
This week our new Year 6 children have been settling back into school life nicely with Miss Reid.
We managed to get outside and take a class photo today. Sadly we did have 1 child absent so we will be taking another photograph when we have 100% attendance, which will be proudly posted for you all to see. The girls look very smart in the new design school skirts and pinafores.
Since it was not raining this morning, we managed to get outside to play a spot of classmate bingo. This involved the children trying to find a child in the class that had, for example, a younger sister, a pet hamster, blue eyes etc. As always, the children were highly competitive and there was a lot of debate as to who won. After checking the first 5 finished, it turned out that our 6th finisher was the only one who had filled their bingo card accurately! Well done to all of the class for taking part and making it such a tough competition.
