The whole school gathered to celebrate Christmas. The tables were set with crackers. Governors,helpers,staff and friends joined the children to enjoy a wonderful Christmas dinner prepared by Mrs Eglon and Mrs Harland. We were treated to a feast of turkey, stuffing, little sausages and brussel sprouts. The gravy was very nice and the veggie option was so good that some people had seconds! The atmosphere was just lovely and the Christmas Pudding and custard was a real treat. Some people got a bit sticky eating their choc ices!
From the smallest to the biggest;from the oldest to the youngest,everyone was looking after each other and having fun and enjoying their food together. This is what makes Sleights so special.
The Church was full for this beautiful service. The Sleights School Family were altogether again to think about those less fortunate. Many of the older children lead us in prayer and gave the readings. The choir,led by Mrs Rowland sang for us all. The Year 6 children lit the candles and shared the light.
Well done to everyone who managed not to eat their jelly tots before returning to school!
This week has been a wonderful one. We are nearing Christmas and with our holidays fast approaching, we have been preparing for the festivities.
We have been visited by seven, rather naughty elves who continue to get up to mischief whilst we’re eating our lunch: they even wrote in Alex’s book!
In English, we have been writing the story of Excitable Edgar – you may have seen him feature in the latest Waitrose TV advert. However, we have made some changes without our stories, and Edgar sometimes gets up to different things when he accidentally breathes fire! You can watch the advert by clicking the link below:
Join us on Tuesday 17th December from 2pm for our reading afternoon. We will be gifting a chosen book to each child and can share these with you, as well as our wonderful Edgar stories.
The Christmas fund raising event was wonderful. Happy families and friends of the school gathered to have fun and eat cakes. Santa met with lots of lovely children and listened to their very reasonable requests. Santa was very impressed by how polite and how kind hearted all the children were and he is looking forward to dropping off their gifts.
Over £400 was raised. Further details later.
