Headteacher's End of Term News.Posted on 16/12/2019
Dear Parents and Carers
Christmas spirit is in the air at the end of an excellent term.
The Christmas Card competition was of such a high standard this year, with so many entries, that we had both a Primary and Secondary winner. Well done to Amelia Chwesiuk in Year 10 and Niamh Bates in Year 3, for their wonderful pieces of artwork that are now the Samuel Ryder Academy Christmas Card for this year. Secondary Christmas lunch has been eaten and enjoyed and the secondary House Christmas Competition has been launched and will be judged on the last day.
Last Friday, it was the turn of Year 2 (and family members) to celebrate Christmas, with the Christingle celebration led by the Reverend Mark Slater, at St Luke's Church. It is a lovely event, with the children reading out loud to everyone with great confidence, behaving impeccably, singing beautifully and enjoying the spectacle of the event. Thank you to those family members that were able to attend and to the Year 2 staff team in their efforts to prepare for the event.
On Wednesday this week the Reception children will be performing in the annual nativity play. Thank you to the Early Years team for preparing the children. If previous years are anything to go by, the quality of the performances, singing and costumes will be fantastic. I am sure that the Reception children's parents and carers are looking forward to it as much as me.
