Christmas Dinner

Wow! Our kitchen staff really outdid themselves today. 🙂

We had a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings followed by Chocolate log and ice cream stars.

The children all wore their own Christmas hats that they had designed earlier this morning, but many still managed to squeeze their cracker hats onto their heads as well.

Dinner took a little longer than usual today as when the children’s favourite Christmas songs came on, many of them sang along. The beautifully decorated tables added to the festive feel.

After chocolate mints and lemonade to wash down the feast, the children headed outside to play.

All the children wanted to say a big thank you to all our kitchen staff who work so hard to feed us, not just today but every day, with such delicious food.


Christmas Tree Competition

As you are probably aware, Battle Abbey Prep School is entering a Christmas tree into the Christmas tree competition at St Mary’s Church in Battle. Our tree will be on display tomorrow (Saturday 24th November between 10.30am-5pm) and Sunday 2nd December (between noon and 5pm) in the church. Please feel free to pop along and take a look! All the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have worked hard during art lessons to create the decorations for our tree.

Below is the information that Miss Blau has written to accompany our tree:

Our tree has been decorated by the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

We have been learning about how Christmas is celebrated all over the World and so our decorations reflect the different customs and traditions in different countries.

  • Poland – stars;
  • Australia – painted shells;
  • USA – popcorn and cranberries;
  • China – paper flowers and lanterns;
  • UK – the fairy on the top;
  • Russia – Baboushka.

Times Tables Success

Year 2 have been working hard on their 10 Times table this term and I am pleased to announce that EVERYONE in the class has succeeded in passing their 10 times table test. A special mention seems appropriate for the following children, who are now officially “masters” of the ten times table due to their super speed during their computerised test. The children below answered 20 questions correctly in under a minute. 🙂

This week saw a shift in our focus to the 2 times table, as you will see from this week’s homework. Practise makes perfect! We have been practising counting pairs of shoes and pairs of Wellington boots as you can see from our display. 🙂
