Is Father Christmas Real?

Yes he is!  Our good friend David Hill is our father Christmas.  A jolly man (no longer with a beard)who has once again given generously to the children of our school.

Author David Hill, an ex pupil of Bishops Nympton Primary School, has donated £100 of his Christmas earnings to the school.

We are so very grateful of his generosity and friendship.  We hope to see David back in school very soon.

Christmas carol concert

Last night we held our first christmas carol extravaganza at St Marys the virgin church. It was an extremely well attended event which saw a variety of performances from the children such as keyboard solos; a clarinet duo and a recorder trio; whole class percussion and songs; a short play from CL3; songs from the choir and whole school carols and christmas songs. The children had a wonderful time and we received numerous comments from very happy parents.

We would also like to thank our hard working PTA who provided our children with food before the event and then ran the christmas fair in the school hall after the concert. We appreciate all their hard work and would like to wish them all a very happy christmas. They have been particularly successful this term and always work hard to raise funds to help improve the school and provide for the children.

Thank you to all who attended our concert last night and from all the staff at Bishops Nympton we would like to wish you a very merry christmas and a prosperous new year.

Also, a huge well done to our term achievers. Keep up the good work.


Zoning out!

Our grounds project took another step forward this half term with continued development of our woodland zone.  Another 130 tree and hedgerow saplings have been planted by the class 3 children during their outdoor learning sessions.

The saplings, donated by the Woodland Trust have helped to form a clear boundary line to separate the woodland zone from the main field.  Entrance to the woodland zone will be through a willow tunnel, due to be created in February / March.

As we look forward into next year, our imminent plan is to create raised vegetable beds, a plastic bottle greenhouse and composting facilities in preparation to start growing in the spring.

Thanks for everyone’s help, support  and donations of materials to the grounds project.

Look out for our new fund raising venture in the new year involving a GB Paralympic athlete!

Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year.
