End of Term News

As we look towards the end of term our children have been and continue to be incredibly busy!

The school PTA Christmas Fayre was a fantastic event, thank you so much to everyone who helped to organise this event and to those of you who attended – I don’t think that we could have fitted any more people into school!

Performance means a lot to us here and we were totally blown away by our Year 3’s performances in their uplifting and delightful play ‘What Does Christmas Mean to You?’ last week and look forward to Year 4’s post-Christmas pantomime in January. We have really enjoyed taking our choirs to the Nettleham Festive Market and the Lincolnshire Police Carol service at Lincoln Cathedral; our final musical trip out will be with our Year 6s when we entertain Nettleham’s Buddies Dementia Café on Tuesday 18th December.

We would like to thank you so much for your support with many charity events over the past month including Children in Need, Save the Children and the Foodbank (we will continue collecting items for this right until the end of term).

Children’s Christmas Party Day is on Wednesday 19th December. Alongside the usual food and games we have the theatre company Pals Productions returning to school to present their version of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, kindly funded by the PTA. You should have received a note with regard to party food that needs to be provided by each child. Also children can come to school in their ‘party’ clothes on that day, packed lunches are not needed for party day and there will be no hot school meals as we have a ‘shared’ lunch from contributions. If any of you had already paid for a meal on this day you will have already received a refund for this.

You may wish to visit Nettleham All Saints Church through the Christmas period for one of their services or simply to look at the tree which will be decorated by our Year 6 children as part of our simple Christmon Service in church at 11am on Thursday 20th December.


Please note that school closes at 3pm on Thursday 20th December and reopens for the New Year on Monday 7th January 2019. 

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Joyful New Year.
