It was lovely to see so many parents, carers and friends in St James Church
for our annual Harvest Festival service.
Our Year 4 children led the service narrating and acting out the story of "Stone Soup"
and Year 6 led us in prayer.
Thank you to everyone who contributed the dry food goods for the local food bank or with a cash donation for Christian Aid.
Our New Reception Class
We welcomed 18 children into our Reception Class this year.
They have all settled really well and it is lovely to have them as part of the St James' family.
Here are some photographs of their early days in school.
Get Caught Reading Competition
During the Summer holiday we held a "Get Caught Reading" competition and asked pupils and staff to come up with ideas for imaginative ideas for unusual or
novel places to enjoy reading.
The idea then was to submit a photograph and we had some amazing and innovative ideas.
It was fantastic to see the level of support for this idea from the children and it proved a great motivator for continuing to share the joy of reading books.
Here are a couple of the winning entries:
