Thank You and Goodbye

I just wanted to finish the term off by saying a huge thank you for the more than generous gifts that I have received today and during this, my last week at Crabtree. The beautiful flowers nearly finished me off today! I have been blown away by the heartfelt messages in the cards and the conversations I have had with so many parents and well wishers.
As I move on to different challenges in my new school, I will take many happy memories of my years at Crabtree and the hundreds - literally- of children who have passed through my classes- all of whom have left me with a wealth of special moments and amusing anecdotes.

I would like to take this chance to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy 2017.

What a night!

What fabulous performances the children produced today. This afternoon was great, but we think that this evening's singing topped that of the afternoon.

Well done to everyone for learning your lines so well, delivering them beautifully and making our Christmas concert such a success.
Thank you to parents for helping out with costumes and being an appreciative audience.

We are now on the count down to the end of term so please refer to the previous blog for important dates and events between now and the end of term.

Wednesday 21st
Last day of term. Bring in a toy day. No electronics please.

The children have had a long first term and I am sure they are getting ready for a nice break from school routine. We have been particularly impressed by their conscientious approach to the completion of homework tasks, reading records and spelling practice. Thank you to parents for supporting with this and making sure that items are in school on the right days.

Year 4 are of course very sad to be losing Mrs Doran and Mr Pollard from the team from January. We wish them well in their new schools and thank them for all their patience and hard work in helping us through the Autumn Term.

We look forward to next term though with; a new Creative Curriculum topic in The Romans, some exciting Science topics and the return of Miss Eastlake!

We wish you all a happy holiday!
