Carols on the Doorstep

Dear Parents/Carers

You may be aware of the Carols on the Doorstep event which started in Shrewsbury but is now ‘going national’ – we have been asked to help make sure that as many streets in possible take part in Shropshire on December 16th and to invite you all to join in!

To take part, stand on your doorsteps on Wednesday, December 16th from 6-7pm and tune in to BBC Radio Shropshire (96FM) who will be providing the backing music from last year’s Carols in the Square for you to sing along to. You are also asked to choose to donate, if you can, to a charity of your choice – there are four local charities suggested on the website.

I have attached the flyer here for the event but you can also find details at www.doorstepcarols.co.uk

The words to the carols can be found there, along with simple sheet music for children to play along to on a variety of instruments (all the right key!).

Obviously the more the merrier – it would be wonderful to get the whole of Shropshire and the rest of the UK all singing together at the same time!

Why not also Decorate your Doorstep (see ‘Decorate’ on the website) – there are prizes available for the best decorated houses!

Kind regards,

Alison Stevens
Shropshire Music Service

Special Mentions : We would like to say a BIG Thank you to Amy and Heidi who helped to prepare the school for Children In Need. They worked so hard organising the fundraising events, writing posts for the website and boards around school. Well Done both, your amazing!

Reception in Panda Class have created masterpieces!

Our Reception children have been learning about themselves this half term.  They have drawn amazing self portraits which will soon be taking pride of place on display.  They have also been busy listening to the story of The Gruffalo and have looked carefully at it’s features…. scary!  Then, using clay, they have created some wonderful faces of the Gruffalo!  Pictures to follow shortly.



Year 1 in Panda Class, have had a super writing week!

This half term we are working with, and enjoying , a wonderful text called Grandad’s Island, by Benji Davies.  The children have really enjoyed experiencing drama sessions and using them to bring their writing to life.  When writing the children have been thinking about adjectives, repetition for effect, using ‘but’ sentences and tomorrow we are looking to use superlatives!  They have worked so hard and should feel very proud of their writing.
