Mark First School Nativity
Mark First School put on a nativity called ‘A Midwife Crisis’ on the 11th December 2019 in Mark Church.
It all started when the Midwife and Steve the donkey were at home relaxing, suddenly the Midwife had a text message, she read it and at that moment she realised that a baby needed her.
Molly told us about the beginning of the play, "Once there was a very busy very important midwife, she was the best midwife from Nazareth to Bethlehem. She had delivered all sorts of important babies and some who were not so important, but they had one thing in common they all needed her.”
As quick as a flash, they hurried to a town called Nazareth. Caesar had ordered a census to happen, the villagers were squeezed and squashed until they found census takers. The census takers were no help. The Midwife was worried about the birth. Soon she decided to knock on a door. The Inn was called The Welcome Inn, but there was no room.
In the end the midwife found the baby king had been born in a stable, his name was Jesus. All along she thought he needed her, but it turned out that she needed him.

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. The spellings are based on the work we are doing in class in Letters and Sounds and on Year 3 and 4 Common Exception words. We will be doing activities every morning to help you practice your spellings, so please bring your spelling books in every day.
Please bring in your reading book and reading diary into school every day. Try and read to an adult every day at home for 10 to 15 minutes, those children who read four or more times each week will be awarded with a certificate.
Homework is given out on a termly basis. Homework tasks will be varied and fun! You can choose which tasks you would like to complete and bring them in to share with the rest of the class. Spare copies will also be available in the classroom. Parents - if you're able to spend some time helping the children on their homework, that would be fantastic.
Our PE lessons this year will take place on Wednesday afternoons every week. For our Year 4 Woodpeckers, Swimming lessons will occur every Thursday afternoon. Our outdoor classroom slot will alternate every other Friday morning. Please ensure your child has their labelled PE, Outdoor Classroom and Swimming kits in school on these days.
I would be very grateful to any helpers who would like to come in on a regular basis to hear readers as this has a huge impact on our young readers. The children will also be busy practising their times tables with our ’77 Club’ so if anyone is free for period of time it would be amazing. If you would like to volunteer to help us, please pop in and speak to me or a member of the office team.
