Breakfast Club
Breakfast Club started this week from 8am to 8.30am each morning. 
This is proving to be a huge success with positive feedback from the children - if you are still interested and haven't signed your child up please do on ParentMail by midday Friday each week for the following school week and refer to the letter sent round for full details or contact the school office
Hedgehogs School Trip to Sevington
Miss Marks organised an amazing trip to Sevington Victorian School, the staff and children all embraced the theme dressing up in Victorian clothes and eating a Victorian lunch.
There has been some great feedback from children who enjoyed the day and there were lots of really positive comments regarding the children's behaviour, inquisitiveness, handwriting, maths knowledge and manners which I'm sure you will all be very pleased to hear.
Kylie Forrester has shared personally with us how much her son Jasper enjoyed it and the conversations it has sparked in their house since and has thanked us for aspiring his interest in history.
Also a massive thank you to those that helped in the cake sale to go towards funding this trip.

St Thomas's Church Christmas Tree

Great Wishford Primary School has a special helper at the Salisbury St Thomas’s Church Christmas Tree Festival.

 The 2023 Christmas Tree Festival is under way (4th – 9th December) ~ always a delight to the eyes as 100 trees decorate the church and thousands will come to visit over this week ~ a fixture of Salisbury for over 15 years.

 Yet again our Primary School has an entry – with each and every pupil decorating a bauble based on the values of the school. A huge thanks to the staff for supporting this initiative and to Manor Farm in South Newton for donating the lovely tree.  At the end of the Festival the tree will be moved to St Giles’ Church for the School Carol Service.
