Nursery Christmas Party

Well our Nursery children certainly know how to party!
We have had a fabulous afternoon, we danced our socks off where we saw some brilliant dance moves, then we had a game of pass the parcel. The children carefully peeled off one layer of paper once the music had stopped and the winner received a pot of bubbles. We had a phone call saying we had a very special visitor and it was Santa himself! The children each took their turn to receive a gift from him and all used their manners beautifully! Well done! Finally we returned to the classroom to have our party food and drinks.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. Thank you for all of your support during this very busy first term.

Reception Christmas Party

What a brilliant Christmas party we have had this afternoon! We did lots of dancing (there were some very cool dance moves), played pass the parcel and even visited Santa’s grotto! Thank you Santa for our early present! We finished the afternoon we lots of yummy party food. We feel even more Christmassy now (if that’s possible).

The Great Christmas Cake Off.

We had a fabulous response to our Christmas Cake Off competition. We were absolutely bowled over by the standard of entries which clearly show what amazingly talented children and what wonderfully supportive parents we have here at Sandford Hill. The judging of the entries proved to be too much of a challenge for our celebrity judging team of Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry (a.k.a. Mrs Wildgoose and Mrs Browne) so we decided to award certificates to all of the children who entered the competition and then drew names out of a hat to see who would take the ‘Cake Off’ crown within each age group category. Everyone was a winner! Thank you so much for entering…..and if you’re not feeling hungry yet, just watch these few snaps below….they’re guaranteed to whet your appetite!


Reception Visit Santa

What a lovely day we have had at Cannock Chase visiting Santa! When we arrived we went straight to Santa’s grotto where we saw the reindeers Comet and Cupid. Santa was so kind and gave us all a Christmas tree to grow and a special present. We had lots of fun playing in the park and following the stickman trail.

Well done to all the children who behaved impeccably as always and thank you to all adults for helping.

We would love to know your child’s favourite part of the trip.

Strawberries And Oranges Visit To Santa

All the children have had a fabulous day at Cannock chase visiting
Santa. We went on a walk in the forest, had a picnic then went to see the man himself. The children sat beautifully as he asked each child what they were hoping to receive on Christmas Day. We then had an amazing time on the park. They all should sleep well tonight!Thank you all for a lovely day.

We have two very excited girls in year 2.

Yesterday marked the start of the Christmas celebrations in Poland. December 6th marks St Nicholas day. On this day Santa brings some small presents to those children who have been well behaved this year.
Julia and Kinga tell us that naughty children receive a stick!

Sw mikolaj means St Nicholas in Polish.

It is pronounced – sh vee en te mee koh why kee

Happy St Nicholas Day to all our Polish pupils, parents and friends 😊

Thank you and well done to the members of our school choir who performed this afternoon at the Douglas Macmillan’s ‘Light up a Life’ service. You sang ‘Away in a Manger’ and ‘Tell me Why?’ beautifully! We were really proud of you!
Thank you to all the parents and family members who came to the service too.
Next choir performance……Young Voices, Birmingham, 27th January!

EYFS Christmas Concert

We just want to say a massive well done to all the children in Nursery and Reception for their two fantastic (west end worthy!) productions! The singing, acting and behaviour was absolutely brilliant and to quote Mr Wardle, we had 120 superstars on that stage.

Thank you to all the parents and carers for providing costumes and coming to watch. We hope you loved the performance and we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
P.s we’re aiming for a record number of comments on this blog post!
