It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!  Our Advent preparations are coming along very well and we will be having our Advent Service at St Joseph's next Wednesday night.  We have been learning some new festive songs for our concert and our brass playing skills are coming along nicely.  Also, some of our class have been learning new skills in bell ringing.

This week we had two visitors to school. We had Captain David Wilson who came in and spoke about the Police Air Support Unit.  We thought the work he does is very impressive and we even got to try on his helmet.  Our other visitor was Katy's new puppy Willow.  Willow was adorable and we hope she comes back to year 4 again soon!

Congratulations to the children who swam their first 25 metres this week and those who got medals in their swimming competion out of school.  We are very proud of you!
