Dear Parents

Christmas Singing

The children would like to invite you to come along and hear their Christmas songs this Wednesday, 12th December, at 11.15 a.m. & 3.15 p.mPlease join in and wear your Christmas Jumper if you can.  Any photographs taken on the day must be for personal use only and not to be published in any format including the internet/social network sites.


To help us with infection control please keep your child at home if they are unwell.

Christmas Cards

We all like to give cards to our special friends at Christmas time.  Often some children do not get as many cards as others or don’t celebrate the season.  To ensure that all children are included we would like to suggest that, if your child would like to give out Christmas cards, they should send one card only addressed to ‘All my friends in (Daffodil/Snowdrop/Buttercup/Lavender/Poppy/Rose/Bluebell/Tulip) Group or Daisy Room’.

This means that no child is excluded as the cards will be read out and shared within the groups.  There is a post box in the cloakroom for children to post their cards.

 Arbury Court Christmas Lights

The Mayor of Cambridge, Nigel Gawthrope will be officially switching on the Christmas lights tomorrow at 3.30 p.m.  You are invited to go along with your children to join others see the switch-on, sing Christmas songs, hot drinks and marshmallows, all welcome.
