‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’ in the Infant and Junior school. Our school was magically transformed into a truly spectacular Winter Wonderland with a show stopping appearance from Father Christmas and his reindeer Snowflake. The impeccably behaved Snowflake warmed the hearts of the children and adults alike. The children were enchanted and a buzz of excitement filled the school hall. Festive refreshments were enjoyed whilst carols rang out. The infant and junior choirs beautifully sang Christmas favourites and were supported by the talented school orchestra. A special appearance of the Ukulele group entertained the queue for Father Christmas. Presents were in abundance and Father Christmas was, as always very generous. What a fantastic start to Christmas!
It has been a busy week all round with an Assembly by Reverend Hugh Bearn and ‘Sheep-Bear’ from Tottington. Preparation for concerts and festive arrangements are in full swing. Year 6 had another amazing trip to the Fire and Rescue Training Centre learning about fire safety and they enjoyed their lunch out with local dementia patients who were being supported by the Fire Service charity, finishing the day off with a festive carol service. Overall it was a very satisfying day. As always, the girls were complimented on their exemplary behaviour. The AJIS Swimming competition was a great success and the girls represented the School in true BGS style bringing home medals. Well done to the girls and boys in the competition. The week was splendidly finished off by The Hobgoblin Theatre Company with an amazing production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’. We were inspired by the talented actors and are looking forward to our Christmas performances!
