Christmas Card competition for Key Stage 2 children

We are still accepting entries for this competition – it would be lovely to have a few more entries to send.  Please get designing and bring your cards into school on Monday morning. Miss Gunn will collect from classes. This is a very worthy cause and I really look forward to seeing your cards.


While we are all thinking about Remembrance and all the people from the armed forces who help protect us, it is important to think about how we can give a little something back. Here is a lovely idea about how we can do this.


Please watch the video below and get designing. Remember, your Christmas card needs to reflect the work that the Armed forces do and to include the special message as detailed below. Your card and message should bring a little happiness into their day if they are spending Christmas away from their families and loved ones.
