EDIT WELCOME
Xmas Cards
Although these have FINALLY arrived we are aware that there are issues with some and also the wrapping paper parents ordered has not yet arrived.

I have chased the company today and they are now saying the paper should be with us by Thursday.

If parents no longer want the paper (and/or the gift tags that were ordered to match) we will issue a refund.

Similarly if you are  unhappy with your cards then please return them to the office and we will give you a refund.  

We have a record of exactly what was ordered and paid for.

We can only apologise for the really poor service given to us this year and assure you that we will not be using this company next year!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
We have begun to get into the Christmas spirit. We have turned our role play area into a festive Christmas scene with Christmas dinner on the table and glorious decorations. The children have enjoyed writing letters to Father Christmas and writing cards to their family and friends.

Christmas Tree Festival
The Year 2 children have made some fantastic Christmas decorations during their Art lessons. These decorations have been used to decorate a tree at Upminster Methodist Church as part of their Christmas Tree Festival. The theme this year is 'All Creatures Great and Small' so the children festively decorated some reindeer, robins, penguins and polar bears. The Christmas Tree Festival is running from 2nd-10th December if you would like to take a look at our tree!
