Holy Trinity Church www.burrington-pc.org.uk/holytrinity-church/ JohnDixon,ChurchwardenWe have had a lovely Christmas season at Burrington. The church was beautifully decorated by the altar guild and the season started with the Christingle service on 4th December. The school had a Christmas service on 15th December and there was the Carols by Candlelight service with the Trinity singers on Sunday 11th.The church was crowded out for this memorable service with all the candles lit and such a fine choir. We had the midnight mass and then a lovely Christmas morning service that finished off with the congregation singing “Happy Birthday” to a certain churchwarden. The last service of the year was a funeral for Jean Lewis, and she was interred in the churchyard itself to be with her husband who was buried many years ago.John Dixon
We are looking forward to a great term with many exciting things planned. Year 5 and 6 returned to school as aliens or astronauts for their first day as they started to learn about space as their topic. They had to investigate a reported alien landing and interviewed eye witnesses. The children enjoyed a great day and the writing that they created from the experience was outstanding.Year 3 and 4 are starting to practice for the Dance Your Socks Off show at the Playhouse in Weston. This is always a wonderful experience for the children and something they will remember for a long time.They are also learning about the Stone Age, this term and visits to Cheddar Gorge are planned. Our Year 1 and 2children are learning about famous people and places and they have a trip planned to the SS Great Britain and theSuspension Bridge.We were very excited to welcome 4 new children to school in January. They are the very first children in ournursery year. They are enjoying sharing the classroom with our small reception class of 8 children and have their own Nursery Leader, Mrs Abbie Riley.All of the children will enjoy Forest Skills together on Tuesdays and the nursery children also have their own quiet space in the school where they can go to enjoy games and books at times.
