In the bleak mid winter....& its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Dear Parents and Carers

What a start to the week! These things are sent to try us. I do apologise for the disruption today will have caused for so many. As I  live in Chester, I was reliant on getting updates from people who live in Tattenhall and from Kevin, our site maintenance officer, who reported that the back roads were indeed very slippy and he was ina 4x4. Hence the decision to close today. I have updated the home page with the following advice for tomorrow:

Adverse weather

Update:

I understand that although we have had no more snow, the cold temperatures are making the thawing process rather slow. As I don't live in Tattenhall, its difficult to ascertain the conditions as its relatively clear in Chester. We do intend to open tomorrow, unless the road conditions make it unsafe for pupils and staff to get to school.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused especially to our working parents. When children come in tomorrow, please can they wear lots of warm clothes (layers), warm coat, hat, gloves and scarves and make sure they have wellies or outside shoes with grips and a pair of shoes to change into in school? Own clothes is fine tomorrow, its important that the children are warm. The heating in school is working but it will be cold outside.

Re-scheduling of the KS1 Christmas Play

Obviously this had to be re-organised today due to school being closed. We have therefore arranged for these performances to be re-scheduled to 2pm and 6pm on Monday 18th December. We really hope that you can join us!

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Last week, Christmas arrived in school in spectacular fashion. We had our youngest children (EYFS: Nursery and reception) perform their Christmas Nativity which was just adorable and there wasn't a dry eye in the house as they sung their little hearts out.

On Thursday, with thanks to our fabulous and dedicated PSA, we welcomed the wider community of Tattenhall in for our Christmas Fayre. The children also ran stalls of their own and had thought of some interesting ways to raise funds- tree decorations, wrapping paper, tombola, cakes, books and so many others. Well done to you all. Thank you to all the stall holders who also came to support the event. It was lovely to see you all. Many thanks to all the parents, grandparents, staff and pupils who made this event possible. I will update you in due course about the amount we have raised.

Our fundraising this week will be via donations after the Christmas Performances. The collections will go toward the charity chosen by School Council- Diabetes UK.

Many thanks for your suport.
