Ho ho ho! Santa’s beard is getting shorter day by day……
Team Hope came back to school yesterday in a double-decker bus to collect the Christmas shoeboxes which Taney children kindly filled over the last few weeks. Sixth Class pupils helped carry out and load the boxes into the Team Hope bus. This year 364 colourful shoeboxes were sent off by Taney children – imagine how much joy these gifts will bring to lucky girls and boys who receive them – well done to all the children who took part!!
The children all enjoyed a dress up day on Friday 25 October when they came in dressed in their finest seasonal gear!
On Thursday 17th October ten pupils and two teachers represented our school at this year’s Diocesan Service, after which we went to visit the crypt. The crypt is located in the basement of the Cathedral. One child in particular was delighted to see Strongbow’s tomb as they are studying the Normans in class at the moment.
The Taney Fair was great fun for everyone last Saturday!
Sixth Class worked very hard all week preparing and setting up their stalls. There were many Sixth Class Stalls to visit with lots to see and do including: Soccer Shots, Super Soaker Challenge, Bottle Flipping, Mini Games, Hit the Can, Beauty Stall, Card Making Tech Stall and many more! Thank you to everyone who helped out with the organising and running of this fun-filled event!

There was huge excitement at school this week when 5 chicks hatched in both 6th clases! These 10 feathery and chirpy little birds were taken around the school to visit all the classrooms. Everyone fell in love with them!!
