Christmas has arrived at HBJS!


Christmas has arrived at HBJS!


The final week of term has transformed HBJS into a magical environment of festive fun around the school and beyond.

We started off last week with our School Christmas Jumper & Dinner day, it was so lovely to see the hall filled with smiling faces and plenty of festive cheer. The children enjoyed eating Christmas dinner with their teachers, pulling crackers and listening to some Christmas hits!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Kitchen Staff for putting on such a delicious spread for all to enjoy. 


Christmas cards are being posted by children and delivered by our Y6 helpers daily.


The children are also enjoying a number of Christmas themed activities in class. 


This week has seen each year group’s Christmas party take place where children have enjoyed music, games and quizzes with their friends.


Our amazing PTA gifted every child in school a chocolate lolly to enjoy during the party.

These were festively delivered by our 2 naughty office elves in full regalia! 


There have been a bumper number of entries for the Christmas colouring Competition this year.

Winners will be announced in celebration assembly this morning.

The PTA have also awarded prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each year group.


As a school community we have all thoroughly enjoyed our two Christmas services held at Christ Church.

Reverend Anthony and Reverend Simon welcomed us all and our Y3 pupils performed the Nativity spectacularly for each of the services.

The combination of confidence, joy and hard work from the narrators, actors and singers created a wonderful retelling of the birth of Jesus.

It was lovely to see so many parents, carers, family and friends attend at the church also. 


The PTA Christmas disco took place last night, the children enjoyed some Christmas classics as well as some more modern ‘tunes’ to show off our disco moves. 


HBJS would also like to thank all of you who contributed to our Gifting Tree. As always it has been incredibly well supported and we wanted to pass on our thanks to you for helping to make Christmas a special time for those who need a little help at this time of year.


We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
