We were delighted to host Whizz Kids which is organised by Welland Valley Cycling Club. The afternoon involved twenty seven children joining in riding around the field and playground and playing various games. Thank you to the organisers and to Friends of Church Langton for their assistance in organising the day.
On a wonderfully sunny afternoon the new four plus pupils welcomed their parents to school. It was a chance to see how well the children have settled, meet with staff team and for the year six buddies to introduce themselves. A big thank you to FOCLs for organising this lovely event.
A large crowd of parents had the pleasure of watching the athletics squad, comprised of pupils from years three, four and five, who competed in the completion held at Corby Athletics Track this week. There were some fantastic achievements, both from individuals and relay teams. Thank you to Miss Parker, Mrs King and Mr Knowles for coaching the team.
We were delighted to have pupils from years three and five take part in the worship led by Bishop Martyn Snow this week at Launde Abbey. The service was to mark the creation of the new Launde Deanery and the children were part of a choir alongside pupils from other local primary and secondary schools. Thank you to Rev Alison, Rev Jonathan and Rev Rosie for all their support with this and with worship in our school.
The year three class had a very enjoyable trip to Flag Fen as part of their learning about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children uncovered artefacts in a dig, learning about the role of archaeologists and then discussed what they had found.
Members of the school council were given the opportunity to take part in the Diocese of Leicester Advent service held at Leicester Cathedral this week. It was lovely to worship with staff and pupils from schools right across the Diocese. Thank you to Mrs Manley, Mrs Byrne and Mr Knowles for accompanying the pupils.
It was a great pleasure to see the pupils in four plus, year one and year two perform It’s a Baby.

Thank you to all the staff who were involved in this excellent opportunity for the pupils.
The pupils in year four, five and six were treated to a performance by from Leicester Grammar School’s Symphonic Wind Band. The children enjoyed hearing many Christmas tunes and were inspired to see the older pupils playing a wide range of instruments.
Thank you to the pupils and staff from Leicester High who visited to perform a Christmas themed anti-bullying play to our pupils this week, the children loved the experience.
