Tithe Barn Times 29th November 2019

Countdown to Christmas

The run up to Christmas is always a magical time in school. The children’s excitement is contagious and it is lovely to hear snippets of Christmas carols and rehearsals for our Christmas celebrations.

The children have been working hard to prepare for our celebrations; they have decorated school with a range of Christmas creations. From baubles and stockings to snowman. The school is awash with colour!

I look forward to seeing many of you at our wonderful Christmas Fair this Sunday between 11 am and 2pm.

We all look forward to you joining us for our Christmas celebrations and sharing this magical time in school.
