December in Year 1

We cannot believe how quickly this half term has passed us by! The children have spent the past few weeks celebrating Christmas. The Christmas play was wonderful, we were so very proud of all the children. Each and every one of them shone in their own special way. They are a very talented group who embraced their performance with maturity, enthusiasm and confidence. We are very sure that you are as proud of them as we are!

The children have also made their Christmas cards in the style of the artist Michelle Holmes and have made a range of decorations for their classrooms including paper chains and snowflakes. We hope you like the calendars too!

Children have also met father Christmas twice, they each have a photograph to remember this special time – FOFIS did an amazing job in organizing this very exciting visit.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in helping your children at home and also for the wonderful gifts. Wishing you a very merry and enjoyable Christmas!


The Year One Team.
