CHRISTMAS AT FAIRLIGHT

CHRISTMAS PRODUCTIONS/SHOWS- FRIDAY 11th DECEMBER 2020
Sadly this year everything is going to be have to be a little different however we still want to ensure that we do something at Christmas and that we celebrate it in school and with you where possible.
On each of the Christmas Pages we will be posting some videos/ films and the children performing their Christmas Songs and Poems for you to watch.
On Thursday 10th December you will be sent a PASSWORD that will allow you access from Friday 11th at 9am until Monday 14th at 3pm. You will then be able to go online and watch our Christmas Performances. And also so will Nanny and Grandad. 
 
If you do not want your child to take part on Religious grounds then please contact your child's classteacher to inform them.
 
If you do not want your child's image to be used in these films etc then please also contact your child's classteacher. There are always other important roles they can have or a good mask might be a way of them still being involved.
 
CHRISTMAS DINNER DAY AT FAIRLIGHT
This will take place on Wednesday 16th December. Please ensure your ParentPay account has sufficient funds in should your child choose to have a Christmas Dinner.
 
A Christmas Dinner Menu will follow shortly. 
CHRISTMAS GIVING DAY AT FAIRLIGHT
On Friday 11th December we will be hosting a Christmas Giving Day. On this day the whole school will in the morning be watching each others videos and Christmas songs. In the afternoon the children will be able to watch a Christmas Film (it will be a U) together in their classrooms.
We will be asking children to bring in a donation for a Christmas Hamper as part of Christmas Giving Day. This donation will then be used to make up some Christmas Hampers for those who may need them at Christmas.
