Crazy Christmas at Park Street!

What a wonderful pre-Christmas week we have had at Park Street!  At the risk of over-doing the alliteration, there has been a great deal of singing, signing and sewing!

The choir and signing club successfully raised over £200 for the Chromebook appeal, by entertaining parents and passers-by outside the Round Church on Tuesday.  It was really heart-warming to see the delight of the passing shoppers!

 

Woodpecker and Eagle Class have been working with textiles this week, Woodpecker class have made some beautiful, felt Christmas decorations. They have quickly learned to thread needles, sew some embroidery stitches and to sew on buttons (very useful!).  Eagle class have created some amazing batik wall-hangings. Many of them managed to use a sewing machine for the first time.  Don’t ask to see your child’s, however, as I believe they are a surprise!

On Thursday we had our delicious Christmas lunch, prepared and served with great efficiency by our hard-working but always cheerful caterers, Roma and Danielle.  The year Six pupils really enjoyed eating ’Al Fresco’!

The Owl and Flamingo Class Christingle took place in the hall on Wednesday (see photo below), and the Woodpecker and Eagles’ service at Great St Mary’s today (Friday) – see video below.

As a school we seek to be child-led. When the Governing Body asked the pupils across the entire school to discuss what our core values are, this is what they said:

Prospective Parents

Learn about life at our unique ‘village’ school situated at the heart of Cambridge.

With only 120 pupils, relationships are at the heart of the school, where every member of staff knows our children and families well.
