This very unusual term is rapidly drawing to a close and as we race at a socially distanced but break-neck speed towards Christmas, the staff and children have managed to take part in some fun events.
The week started off with the Foundation Nativity which was performed in the outdoor classroom with the KS1 and KS2 bubbles watching from a distance. The video has been on the blog for the past week and has been well received by all who have watched our wonderful 3, 4 and 5 year olds enact the Christmas Story.
Wednesday was Christmas Dinner Day and the children and their bubble staff enjoyed another delicious meal, produced by the kitchen at St. Barnabas School.
Children and staff were bedecked in their Christmas Jumpers, as part of our Christmas Dinner celebrations, which must have been quite a sight for children’s illustrator, Nick Sharratt, who ‘dropped in’ to deliver a virtual master class to KS1 and KS2, just before lunchtime. Judging by the laughter and giggles coming from the Hall and Classroom, everyone enjoyed meeting Mr. Sharratt and practicing their drawing.
KS1 had more Christmas fun during the week which included using their maths skills to colour in Christmas pictures, making wonderful Christmas hand puppets and all the children, Nursery to Year 6, were able to watch a virtual concert, courtesy of the extremely talented young musicians from the Vale Academy Brigg.
The magic of Christmas has helped return some level of normality to our School Family and although this hasn’t been a typical Kirmington School Christmas, hopefully it will be one the children and staff will remember for the right reasons.
