Principal’s Message


We are well and truly getting in the Christmas spirit here now! We cannot wait to see you all at the Christmas Fair after school. As you know, this year we have had to make alternative plans with the KS2 gym being out of use, and so the fair is at the community centre. Thank you to all of our school community for their donations and to FOGS who have put in so much work to make tonight a huge success. Please do remember that your children will need supervising at all times during the fair as we expect it to be a busy one!

Our Christmas trees are up at both sites and are looking splendid. The children have all made a decoration to hang on the tree. Nativity rehearsals are well underway and I cannot wait to see their performance at St Thomas’ Church next week. Our reception children have also been practising for their first ever live show- it’s going to be a good one!

Christmas aside, we have had lots of sporting events over the past few weeks: from cross country to ten pin bowing, dodgeball to football. We are so proud of every single child who has represented the school as they have all displayed our Greetland values in abundance and have been ambitious, brave, curious, healthy, respectful and untied. At all the events we have attended, we received comments about the wonderful behaviour of our children- I couldn’t be prouder.  I would also like to thank the staff who have made it possible to attend all these events, as many of them have given up their own time to attend.

Our choir perform at St Thomas’ Church on Sunday evening at their special children’s service and I know we are in for a real treat as Mrs Smelt has worked really hard with the children on their songs. I can’t wait to hear them!

Finally, I am thrilled to announce that Mrs Rothery had a baby boy over the weekend. Albie Elliot Rothery is absolutely beautiful, just like his mummy, and we all cannot wait to meet him. Mrs Rothery has asked me to pass on her thanks for all the well wishes, cards and gifts she received.

Have a lovely, festive weekend.

Mrs Crowther
