Dear Parents and Carers,
We would love to have invited you into school this year to see our Christmas Nativity. Sadly, that was not to be. We have decided to send you some Christmas cheer from all the boys and girls in Year 1 and Year 2. They have been singing some Christmas songs and we have recorded them so we can share them with you.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Mrs Sanderson, Mrs Silvanus and Miss Donaldson.

Merry Christmas from Hedworth Lane Choir!
The choir has enjoyed getting together to sing their favourite Christmas songs, despite the lack of performance opportunities this year – they really are true professionals! The children chose two of their favourite songs to record for you to enjoy at home – ‘Rockin Around the Christmas Tree’ and ‘Midnight’, featuring our resident soloist, Matthew.
We know that Christmas will look very different for many of us this year but we hope these little videos will bring you some Christmas cheer! I’d like to send special thanks to our fabulous pianist, Andrew Richardson, who has provided much needed support during staff shortages and kept the choir singing every week.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful festive season and a less eventful 2021!

Rainbows Welcome back the Children and families of Hedworth Lane School.
Most of us are able to return to school today and we all can’t wait. All the rest of us will return on Tuesday or in the next few days. This beautiful rainbow appears over our school welcoming everyone back.
Beautiful photos sent in by Lily and her mam.
Maths Week England
Class 1 have worked so hard this week on their Times Tables and have managed to scrape themselves right up to the top of the MWE Rock Out 2020 league table from all the way down in second last place!
Furious last minute games have been going on all day in Years 5 and 6 to try and beat one another, but at the close of the school day… Class 1 has pipped the others to the post!
Will there be any last minute weekend warriors that can change the stats before the battle closes Saturday at 7.30pm? Or can another class come storming back through the charts…? Only times tables will tell

Parliament themed activities took place across school during Parliament Week. It was a fantastic introduction to UK Parliament and democracy. We built on our prior learning and previous engagement in Parliament Weeks.
Keeping Your Child Safe on Bonfire Night
As children get older they naturally gain more freedoms like going out with their friends after school. Keeping them safe is every parent’s priority. This is not easy when Bonfire Night approaches. Fireworks in particular are on sale throughout October, November and December. Please see the link below for information to help you keep your child safe this November and beyond.
Hedworth Lane Children are ‘First Class!’
Our new starter Reception age children have made huge strides in the last few weeks and have stepped up into ‘big school.’ They are all impressing us by how well they have settled into school life. we have sent their photograph to the Gazette so they can feature in their ‘First Class’ spread in the newspaper and online. Please look out for it as they are indeed a ‘First Class’ Reception. Well done children! (and parents too!)
