Dear Parents and Carers,


Christmas Events!


Here at Stoke, we continue to work extremely hard in the lead up to Christmas whilst also embracing the festive feel. The tree continues to be a talking point as do the decorations and anticipation for future events. Please see the website for all that is happening in the run up to Christmas. I told the children about our Winter Wonderland experience today and they are hoping you will enjoy this with them! On 21st December at 1.30-4pm, we would like you to collect your children and enter our magical Christmas experience. A big part of this is the fact we have a real-life Nativity scene coming to our playground. Children will be able to talk to Mary, Joseph and the shepherds and say hello to the real life donkey, sheep, and goat. You will be able to purchase hot food, hot chocolate and come and buy the very unique keep sakes your children have made today using natural or recyclable materials during our House Entrepreneur’s Day. There will be a tombola, bric a brac, fun games, live music and so much more! We cannot wait to share this experience with all of you.


We also have our Santa’s grotto from next Friday. Please ensure you have purchased your tickets and bring your children to the correct House day for this!


Thank you
