We Three Kings of Orient Are

We three kings of Orient are

We three kings of Orient are;
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain,
following yonder star.

Chorus

O star of wonder, star of light,
star of royal beauty bright,
westward leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,
gold I bring to crown him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
over us all to reign.

Chorus

Frankincense to offer have I;
incense owns a Deity nigh;
prayer and praising, voices raising,
worshiping God on high.

Chorus

Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume
breathes a life of gathering gloom;
sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

Chorus

Glorious now behold him arise;
King and God and sacrifice:

Alleluia Alleluia

The earth replies

Chorus

Winter Wonderland

Over the ground lies a mantle of white
A heaven of diamonds shine down through the night
Two hearts are thrillin’ in spite of the chill in
the weather

Love knows no seasons, love knows no climb
Romance can blossom, any old time
Here in the open we’re walkin’ and hopin’
Together

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
To sing a love song
As we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman
We’ll pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, are you married?
We’ll say, no man
But you can do the job when you’re in town

Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, The plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
To sing a love song
As we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman
We’ll pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, are you ready?
We’ll say, no man
But you can do the job when you’re in town

Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, The plans that we’ve made Walking in a winter wonderland

What Christmas Means to Me

Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah

Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah

Oh yeah!
Candles burnin’ low, Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice, Everywhere we go
Choirs singin’ carols, Right outside my door

All these things and more (all these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love
(That’s what Christmas means to me, my love)

Oh yeah

I see your smilin’ face, Like I never seen before
Even though I love ya madly, It seems I love you more
That little card you give me, Will touch my heart for sure

All these things and more (all these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love
(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)

I feel like runnin’ wild, As anxious as a little child
Greet you ‘neath the mistletoe, Kiss you once and then some more
I wish you a Merry Christmas baby

(I wish you a Merry Christmas baby)
And such happiness in the comin’ year
(And such happiness in the comin’ year)

Let’s deck the halls with holly
Sing sweet silent night
Fill the tree with angel hair
And pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight

All these things and more, (All these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love

(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)


All these things and more, (All these things and more)
That’s what Christmas means to me my love

(That’s what Christmas means to me my love)

Means to me

(Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah)

Means to me

(Bah Bah Bah Bah Bah)

That’s what Christmas means

Christmas means to me!

Peace Child

6L – ‘Egypt’s Dispersed Heritage’ project launch at the Horniman Museum

This term, we will be working with staff from the Horniman Museum to explore and discuss our thoughts on whether or not artefacts from ancient cultures should be retained by British museums. During our visit, we had the opportunity handle objects from Ancient Egypt that were over 3,000 years old. Most of the objects had been removed from tombs. We considered their historical value and discussed the fact the deceased person(s) had not given consent for the objects to be removed from the tombs. Our discussion gave us plenty of issues and perspectives to consider. We plan to continue our conversation next month when staff from the Horniman will visit us at school.

Historians assemble…

6L 📚World Book Day📚

As you can see, we have had a fantastic day celebrating books & reading. Illustrator, Joelle Avelino, visited our school today to share her work and tell us about her job as an illustrator. Joelle then spent some time in each Year 6 class, answering our questions and talking about her approach to illustrating before we had a go at producing book cover design for the book we are using in English – ‘Coming to England’. Joelle also set a completion to illustrate a page from the book ‘Hey You’.
Many thanks to parents and carers who helped their children get costumes ready for today – they all looked fantastic! 🤩

Can you guess the book characters we have come as?
