Chilcote school annual Christmas service at St Peter`s church

On Friday 20th December, we held our annual Christmas Service at St Peters Church.
The whole school travelled to St Peters by double decker bus or minibus as the weather forecast was for heavy rain . Everyone behaved beautifully, had excellent audience manners and the singing sounded fantastic. It was a very special morning.
Year 6 and staff acted out a retelling of the Christmas story and described how Christmas and Christianity is similar to other faiths and religions.Year 6 all received a Christingle which they held alight at the front of the church. The school staff band played a selection of Christmas carols and we were very pleased to welcome back Mrs Bramley, who is an important member of the band.
  Well done everyone. All the staff are very proud of you.

Photos and videos were taken but due to technical issues, we cannot publish them just yet.
They will follow in the New Year.

With all best wishes to you all for a happy and restful holiday.

Chilcote Christmas concert

On Tuesday 17th December, our school gathered together to enjoy listening to our school orchestra, string chamber group and brass band. Some children also played solo or group performances and our new string players played for us- a great achievement as they have only been playing since September.
Well done everyone on your super performances, all your practice this term was worth it as we all enjoyed listening to your high quality playing.
A big thank you also to Mr Fisher- our fantastic brass teacher and Miss Hobbs- our amazing string teacher- and conductor of the orchestra and string chamber group.

A very busy term in Nursery

The children in Nursery have now all settled well into our daily routines and are really enjoying the activities we undertake in our sessions.   
The children have all worked very hard over the last few weeks and are happy and excited by any new experiences they can explore.   
The children have shown us how creative and artistic they are.   They have developed friendships and are learning to play and learn with each other well.

Just a few of the happy times we have spent leaning during the Autumn Term.   
We can't wait for more adventures in 2020!
