Weekly reminders for week beginning 12th December 2022

Well, it is almost impossible to believe that we are in the final full week of this term. What a term is has been! I am sure you will agree that it has been a successful time at Clockhouse for so many different reasons.  I cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for the part you have played in this and for your on-going support and kindness.
Last week in school we continued to try to give the children a fantastic Christmas experience. We hope you enjoyed the stories we shared, there are more to come this week. We hope the children enjoyed Christmas Dinner on Friday and the Zoom Clockhouse Christmas Quiz. I have to say the children (and staff) all looked amazing in their Christmas jumpers! If you attended concerts last week, we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did and thank you being so good at adhering to the rules - it really is appreciated.

This week sees the Year 3 and 4 concert and the Year 5 and 6 Carol Concert. The dates are as follows:
