Autumn Term 2

Harvest praise!

Well done to everyone who took part in our lovely harvest service on Monday and a big thank you to all parents for sending in food items for Enfield Food Bank. They were all very much appreciated. The children entertained us with their knowledge of Stone Age, Roman and USA food and we discovered what happens when you go "Down to the Allotment" as Reception, Year 1 and 2  sang to us. Year 6 added some descriptive harvest poetry  whilst our Singers took us through a medley of food-related songs. Thank you to Father Taemin for officiating and supporting us. 

Christmas Jumper Day

I think the principle of Christmas jumper day was fantastic! The children and staff looked 
super and I have rarely seen such an array of sweaters and tops adorned with Christmas
logos, messages and pictures! Everyone looked great! But the mild weather did cause more 
than just a few adults to break out in a sweat! Particularly whilst laying the tables for 
Christmas lunch!

The cooks, under the direction of Florence, prepared a delicious dinner with all the trimmings
and the children were genuine in their cheers for them. Thank you to everyone who entered
into the true Christmas spirit of the day and gave a contribution to our school charity. So far 
we have raised an amazing total of £400 for CLIC Sargent from our various charity days, 
performances and nativities! Thanks also to all staff who served the food for the children.

Santa's Grotto

We had a very special visitor in school this Tuesday as Santa Claus came to Freezywater St
George's! Every child in the school took a magical visit to Santa's Grotto and received a 
present. A big thank you goes to Katie and the FRIENDS' Team who helped Santa set up his 
workshop.

Christingle Rock and Roll

Thursday afternoon saw the second of our Christingle services in St George's church. We
began this service only last year - replacing our previous carol concerts - and I think this is
becoming another highlight of our church school year and definitely one worth attending.

Year 6 were given the responsibility of organising the carols, readings and songs ably
supported this week by Mrs Asghar. The children excelled with beautifully read Bible verses, 
their own Christingle poetry, prayers and lively songs. Their explanation of the meaning of 
Christingles was clear to all.  They executed the peal of bells professionally and showed their 
pride in the actual Christingles they made.

The additional songs by Reception/Key Stage One and by our Freezywater Singers (and Miss 
Clark!)  added to the wonderful occasion. Well done to everyone who helped and to all of year 6.
