Our choir did us very proud at the Hammersmith Town Hall with their super singing! On 11th December, over 400 children sang as part of the Tri-Borough Christmas Festival. Repertoire included songs in Spanish and Latin, as well as some well-known Christmas carols. Malak Chelqi (Year 5) was invited to do a reading and did a great job. Well done to all the children involved!
We were delighted to be invited to the Christingle Service at St Matthew’s church. It was another special event for our families and the church was packed! William led the service with some helpful additions of a camel and a surprise appearance of a life size Christingle orange! Our Christingle choir performed two carols and received rapturous applause from the audience. Well done to the choir who sang so beautifully.
We held a special RE (Religious Education) day on Thursday where the children learnt all about the traditions of Christmas around the world. In the classes children were learning about Advent and Year 6 designed and made some traditional Christmas wreaths. The children and staff also enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch – roast turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings, followed by a tasty Christmas cake and ice cream. I would like to say a special thank you to all our wonderful team who work so hard to prepare the children tasty, nutritional lunches throughout the year, but went the extra mile on Thursday.
Children in Nursery and Reception classes gave a superb performance of ‘A snowman at Sunset’. They sang beautifully and danced with enthusiasm. Well done to all the children – you were great!

It was wonderful to see the children arriving in costume for the Christmas Castle Feast. Year 1 and 2 all dressed up as a character from a castle – there were some amazing costumes! Each class recited and performed a poem they had written and there was food and dancing in the Great Hall!
On 1st December we invited parents to come in and see our first full orchestra rehearsal! After 9 weeks of rehearsing in separate ensembles, we brought all 60 children together and what a great sound they made!
