Celebrating Diwali

Today we celebrated another important festival, Diwali. We enjoyed a special lunch and the atmosphere of celebration in the hall. 

Making snowmen

Using their entrepreneurial skills every child made a snowman to sell at this year's Christmas Fayre to help raise money for the school. 


The children all enjoyed this year's pantomime, Puss in Boots.

Oh no they didn't!

Oh, yes they did!

School choir at Sycamore Nursing Home

The Rucstall Choir enjoyed the opportunity to bring some Christmas cheer to the residents of Sycamore Nursing Home. We may not have been able to go inside this year, but we were able to sing as they listened through the windows!
