Celebrating Christmas


Well we have finally reached the end of a very long year! Year 6 have worked extremely hard and to celebrate we ended the year with a party and an afternoon watching nativity. we also had lots of fun making animal balloons.

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, enjoy the rest and have a wonderful New Year from Mrs Croft.

Christmas singing at Sainsbury’s


The customers at Sainsbury’s, Maypole had some festive cheer from Bells Farm on Monday, when 14 of our Year 6 children sang carols and contemporary Christmas songs in the foyer of the store.

Mrs Butterworth and Mrs Johnson were so proud of the children as they sang their hearts out with festive favourites such as “Away in a Manger” and “Silent Night”, and then got in touch with their inner diva with “Let it Go” and “All I want for Christmas is you.” Lily, Tionne, Phoebe and Katie even spontaneously decided to show off their dance moves from their Friday after school club routines.

In just one hour, we raised a fantastic £98 which will be used towards the year 6 fund-raising effort for the residential trip and end of year celebrations. Well done Year 6 – you are all absolute stars!

Today Mrs Croft has awarded the Year 6 Spotlight award to Katie Campbell. Katie won the award because her efforts in class and at home have been. She has made an extra special effort to improve her spellings and can be seen practising them at every available moment.

She has now decided to do the same with her number club! There’s no stopping her! A very well done Katie- you deserve this.

Now if we can just get her to stop losing her glasses we’ll be laughing!!!

This weeks spotlight in Year 6 is shining on… Kaitlyn Horton. I have awarded it to Kaitlyn because she is just such an asset to have in the class. She always tries her best and has a super attitude to everything that is asked of her. She always volunteers to do jobs and is definitely my ‘little helper!’ You deserve this Kaitlyn- well done!

This week the ‘Spotlight award’ has been awarded to Lucas Harvey. He has been trying so hard in school, but also at home. He has been reading regularly (something he is not very keen on!) and his spellings have improved. ( Watch out Dominic he’s catching you up!) He has also moved up in his number clubs which is fantastic! Keep this up Lucas, I am very impressed.
