Christmas Singalong 2019

December 8th, 2019

Everyone is looking forward to the forthcoming child lead singalong of ‘Jesus Christmas Party’ on Wednesday 11th December for parents/family and Thursday 12th December for grandparents/family. Doors will open in the morning at 10.15am for a 10.30am start and in the afternoon 1.45pm for a 2.00pm start.  Due to limited seating, we can only make two tickets available to each child for each show, 2 tickets per child.  Please collect your tickets from the table in the foyer. There is no charge for this event but we will invite you to make a donation to a charity at the Singalong. We would ask if children could wear a white top on the day, this can be any white top you have and don’t worry if it has a picture or pattern on it. A ‘Photo Booth’ where your child can dress up as any character and have their photo taken will be available on the day.

Mindfulness Sessions

October 9th, 2019

To encourage the children to connect with their own thoughts and regulate their feelings Mrs Hendry has been inviting small groups of children to take part in a Mindfulness session. While engaging with all of their senses with the use of scented candles, flowers, sensory light equipment  the children were transported on a magical flying carpet, it was amazing to hear where their imagination took them…

Katie – ‘We imagined we were on magic carpet. It was comfy on the ground. It was really dark the moon and the stars were there, the carpet was flying it was like magic’

Ryan – ‘We were on a magic carpet, we used our imagination, it was good’

Thea – ‘Went on a flying carpet but it wasn’t real it was pretend, it was fun’

Robbie – ‘We were using our imagination, It was making me calm. I was going to my place’

Gracie – ‘We went on a carpet and Mrs Hendry turned the light off and took our shoes off’

Tyler – ‘We were imagining stuff, we were on a carpet and it could fly. The lights were switched off but we seen the stars and the moon’.

Zak – ‘I went up there, in the sky’.

Finlay – ‘Flying a magic carpet, the lights were off. Using imagination’

Lewis – ‘I went on a magic carpet, we were flying, it was just fun and that’s the end.’

Imogen – ‘I saw the starts and the moon and we lied down. The moon was changing colours’

Zoe – ‘It was sparkly ad dark, there was a sparkly crown, there was a carpet. Fun.’
