Forty Hill C.E. School

Christmas 2020

This year, we want to make Christmas as special as we can for the children, parents and staff at Forty Hill. We know it has been a really tough year in so many ways, so let’s end it with a magical celebration of Christmas! See the letter below for all the exciting things taking place this year! A huge thank you to the APF for organising a wonderful Christmas for our children! 
 

Our Spectacular Advent Calendar 

As the children will not have the opportunity to enjoy all the games and fun activities at the Christmas Bazaar this year, the APF have created a Virtual Christmas Advent Calendar for the children to enjoy every school day during December. Each class will access the Advent Calendar daily, via their interactive whiteboards in class. They will see an extract of the Christmas Story, a Christmas Cracker joke, and each class will receive an exciting message or activity clip from someone or something! Plus… they will receive class and individual gifts and a fun activity along the way too! We really hope that this will be exciting and lots of fun for the children during December and we look forward to sharing with you what the daily doors reveal.

The Twelve Days of Christmas Carols (well 14 actually!)

Although we would like to all join together to sing carols at the end of the day in the last week, we do not feel we can do this, this year. Instead, we will be recording children singing carols and uploading them to our website each school day during Advent for you to watch at your leisure. Look out for the daily additions here:
