We know you’re sick of Lockdown 2, But please don’t have the Christmas blues;Hey Santa! Fetch your reindeer sleigh! We’re doing things the WOODHALL WAY.(Not quite the norm, but do not fret-ta) Just read the details of this letter!
This year, we are going to film our Nursery and Reception/Year 1 and Year 2 Christmas plays, as we are unable to have an audience. We will be selling DVDs of both Nursery & Reception’s ‘a Christmas Story’and Year 1 & 2’s ‘TheSleepy Shepherd’ in the week beginning Monday 14thDecember. Perfect for Christmas gifts!
‘ENOUGH CHRISTMAS ALREADY!’ DAY: Tuesday 15th December
Today, we will hold our Woodhall Christmas dress-up day. Wear your Christmas jumper! Put on a Santa hat! Jingle those bells! There will be lots of just-for-fun Christmas arts & crafts going on in classrooms, and it’s also our school Christmas dinner day(information to follow). In the afternoon, we will all be Zooming into a very special pantomime: Peter Duncan’s ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Oh, yes we will!We will also ask for a donation of £2 per child so that we are able to provide drinks, sweets and popcorn during the pantomime.
It’s a Christmas quiz! From Monday 2ndDecember, you can buy a Woodhall Christmas Quiz for £1. Take it home, complete the fiendishly difficultquestions at your leisure over the holidays, and return it to school during the first week back. Quizzes will be marked and a winning family declared, with some great prizes available!
CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT
Sadly, we cannot hold ‘Carols by Candlelight’ at school this year…a real shame, as it’s one of our favourite events. Instead, we are hoping to record the children singing and make our very own ‘Carols from Woodhall’ CD! We will provide further details nearer the time.
CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS RAFFLE
Strictly kids only! We will be selling raffle tickets at the main entrancefrom Tuesday 1stDecember. Fantastic prizes up for grabs!
The past year has been extremely difficult in terms of an already-stretched school budget. Like most schools, we have not received any extra central fundingfor COVID-related costs; for example the painted marks on the paths and playgrounds, PPE equipment, a multitude of additional cleaning materials and many other things. Instead, we have had to cut costs significantly in other areas. Your help –through buying raffle tickets, coming to the Tree Festival, buying a quiz etc –will be very much appreciated.
Thank you, Miss Lake
