A brilliant time was had by all at our Christmas Market this year (14th Dec).
It was a great opportunity to come together as a community and enjoy the festivities.
Well done and thank you to everyone who was involved.
On Tuesday the choir went to sing at the INTU centre in Milton Keynes shopping centre with an invitation from the Cornerstone Appeal. The children sang their hearts out in the freezing cold and did us all proud! Well Done! A big thank you also to the parents who came to support and also siblings - they were a great crowd! Here are some pictures from the event:
Congratulations to the Aspire winners from the 1st of December, each child has performed to the highest calibre and we are very proud to celebrate their hard work and share it with the rest of the school and of course the parents.
Keep up the good work :)
On Friday year One had an RE day where we found out about the importance of giving and receiving gifts at Christmas and why gifts are so significant at this time of year. In the afternoon we took part in a Nativity workshop where we worked collaboratively in teams to create a nativity scene . We had a wonderfully creative and enjoyable afternoon!
The children, staff and the lovely helpers of Great Linford braved the snowy conditions to attend school today. We took the opportunity to play in the snow with our friends. We had a great time and had "snow much fun"
A huge thank you to all of our families for donating food to our annual Christmas Foodbank Appeal. All of the food and toiletries that were collected have been donated to the MK foodbank and will directly support those in need in our local community. The house that raised the most will be announced in our Celebration Assembly at the end of next week.
Four Year 5 children had the opportunity to visit Denbigh School and spend the afternoon discussing and debating issues relating to religious education. The event was attended by different schools and children from a range of age groups, from Year 5 all the way up to sixth form students. The children sat at a long table and were given different statements and pictures, most relating to moral concepts, before having time to think about them and form their opinions. Following this, the children had a chance to stand up and voice their views in front of all the other children and teachers. Well done Younus who was brave enough to do this with a fantastic confident voice! He said "my heart was beating so fast whilst I was waiting to speak." The afternoon was enjoyed by both the adults and children and we hope to be able to attend more Youth Sacre events in the near future.
Well done to all of our fantastic KS 1 children who certainly did us all proud this week when they performed their Nativity " Born in a Barn". I am sure all of their families had a wonderful time- there wasn't a dry eye in the house! Your teachers are so proud each and every of you!
On Thursday 30th November, the Year 6 girls netball team took part in an Aspire Netball competition against St Monica's and Giffard Park schools. It was the first competitive game that any of the girls had played and they did extremely well. All of the girls had a fantastic time, despite the cold weather, and are looking forward to the next matches in the New Year.
Rosie, our Year 6 Sports Ambassador said, ' It was fun but it was really chilly. I can't wait to play again.'
