Christmas Fair Postponed Until Monday 18 December!

Due to the imminent arrival of even more snow and the forecast of heavy snowfall throughout the day, the decision was made to close Greenfield today.

The Christmas Fair will now take place on Monday 18 December from 6.00 to 8.00 pm. If you are able to help with the set up or running of this event, please contact emmakilbride@me.com. We look forward to seeing you there.

Many thanks to all our parents and families for your support and generosity in preparing for the Christmas Fair at Greenfield. The amount and the variety of ‘Jolly Bags’ last week was impressive; we clearly have some very thoughtful families, who have put together just the sort of things that our children will love to win. The response for bottles and cakes today was also excellent, considering the weather.

Our Christmas Fair will run as usual from 6.00 to 8.00 pm and we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible on the new date. Feel free to bring your neighbours and friends.

 

Christmas Week at Greenfield

Everyone in our extended Greenfield family is also warmly invited to come to our traditional Christmas Carol Service in St Thomas’s Church on Tuesday 19 December from 10.00-11.00 am. Both events are guaranteed to get you feeling the spirit of Christmas.

 

Shining Stars

It has been an absolute pleasure to watch our children performing their Christmas Productions this week. It was hard to believe that our boys and girls in Reception have been in school for less than a term, when we saw them acting, dancing and singing with such confidence in their excellent performance “Nursery Rhyme Nativity”.

Our children in Year 1 and Year 2 entertained us brilliantly with their show “The Little Carpenter”. The costumes were superb, the acting was assured and the singing was excellent. A special mention must go to Lila Bustin, Isla Beau Solly-Stockton, Joel Pritchard, Adam Ahmed and Raiyah Faux-Ahmed for their splendid performances and solo singing in the lead roles.

Many thanks to all our parents and grandparents for all your kind words of praise, we are glad that you enjoyed watching as much as the children did performing. Both shows prove just how talented our Greenfield children are, whether they perform individually or as part of a show’s cast. These performances also demonstrate how much our children can achieve through working with our superb, dedicated staff, who have such very high expectations for our children and do whatever it takes to ensure that each child achieves their full potential.

 

School Closure on Friday 8 December

Due to the imminent arrival of even more snow and the forecast of heavy snowfall throughout the day, the decision has been made to close Greenfield.

We anticipate being open to our children again on Monday but please check this website for any updates.

The Christmas Fair will now take place on Monday 18 December from 6.00 to 8.00 pm.  If you are able to help with the set up or running of this event, please contact emmakilbride@me.com.  We look forward to seeing you there.

 

It’s Showtime!

Next week sees our children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 on stage for their highly anticipated Christmas performances. We are looking forward to seeing our Year 1 and Year 2 show, “The Little Carpenter”, on Tuesday 5 December at 2.00 pm and at 6.30 pm. Our eagerly awaited Reception performance, “Nursery Rhyme Nativity”, takes place on Thursday 7 December at 10.30 am and this will be the children’s very first time under the stage lights at Greenfield. All our children have amazed me with their ability to learn so many new songs so quickly and the quality of their singing, acting and dancing is superb. We hope to see as many parents and grandparents in the audiences as possible as you shall be in for a real treat.

 

Keep it in the Family

In the interests of safeguarding our children, we are happy for families to take photographs or videos of performances for exclusively personal purposes. If anyone were foolish enough to upload any of these images onto social networking websites, the privilege of taking personal photographs would have to be withdrawn. We are sure that you will agree that we must all act together to keep all our Greenfield children as safe as possible at all times. The important thing is to be sure that people with no connection with our school do not have any opportunity to film covertly or access images of our children. Our members of staff are asked to quiz anyone they do not recognise, who is using a camera or video recorder at events and productions.

 

Christmas at Greenfield

We are all really looking forward to next week’s Christmas Fair on Friday 8 December from 6.00-8.00 pm. This is not just one of our major annual fundraisers but also an evening when our school community comes together, enabling new and old friends to meet and socialise.

We welcome all our parents and families to ‘Carols by Candlelight’ on Monday 18 December in our hall at 6.30 pm. This is a family event with performances from our choir and all the children, who are learning musical instruments. Come along and enjoy mulled wine, mince pies and community carol singing to get you in the mood for Christmas.

Everyone in our extended Greenfield family is warmly invited to join us for our traditional Christmas Carol Service in the beautiful setting of St Thomas’s Church on Tuesday 19 December from 10.00-11.00 am. If you haven’t got into the spirit of Christmas by the last week of term, our traditional service with carols, readings and a Nativity is guaranteed to get you feeling suitably seasonal.

Our final Christmas events for our children take place on Wednesday 20 December, the last day of term, with our annual talent show, ‘Greenfield’ s Got Talent’, in the morning and Class Christmas Parties in the afternoon. Children are welcome to wear their party clothes to school.

Many thanks to you all for your generosity in sending in so many wonderful Jolly Bags today. Next Friday is a Bottles and Cakes Mufti Day.

 

Everyone can grow in a Greenfield!
