It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Loxdale!

We are excited to be celebrating our first Christmas in our new school and there is certainly lots going on. We are looking forward to welcoming you this evening to our Christmas Fair and we do hope that you will be able to join us to help raise funds to purchase additional equipment for the children of our school. There will be lots of stalls and games and MANY prizes to be won. We have also heard that a very special visitor is arriving this evening for the children- wait until you see our new and amazing grotto- built by our Chair of Governors- it is FANTASTIC!!! There is even mince pies and wine for our parents to enjoy. Yesterday was our Early Years Christmas sing-along and I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. All of the children were absolute superstars and sang their hearts out for the families in the audience. Today, we have taken our choir to St. Martin's Church for our annual Bilston school's 'Christmas Get Together', where all of the children from each and every school sang beautifully. I was very proud to be spoken to by parents of other schools, who said what an absolute credit our children were in their singing , their behaviour and their impeccable manners. However, it came as no surprise as our children are always a real credit to us, wherever we go and I just wanted to say a big thank you to all parents and carers for helping us to achieve this. There is still lots to look forward to with Year 1 and Year 2 production, Year 3- Year 6 Carol Concert and Christingle and, not to forget Nursery's visit to see Santa at Excel Church. The children all have parties to celebrate and cards and calendars to make. Christmas is a busy but magical time in school, where lots of fun is had by us all. However, we also ask the children to think about those who are less fortunate and who will not be able to celebrate with their family and friends this year. To this end, the staff have decided not to send each other cards this year, instead we are buying gifts to send to the local food banks and shelters instead. In the meantime, I hope we will see you all over the rest of this term as we celebrate the season of goodwill to all mankind. Mrs Scott Headteacher
