St Nicholas’ Day 2016
Have you ever seen mysterious characters walking the streets of Czech, Slovak and other European cities on December 6th?
It most likely was St. Nicholas (Mikulas), the devil (cert), and the angel (andel).
St. Nicholas looks a bit like Santa Claus and children who have been good throughout the year sing songs or recite poems to him and his friends. St Nicholas then gives the children sweets, chocolate and other goodies. Children who are naughty get a bag of black coals or raw potatoes in their shoes.
The staff and children at St Ann’s celebrated St Nicholas’ Day on Tuesday December the 6th. St Nicholas and his angel were special guests in school and they went to each class in turn. The children sang songs and they all received a sweet in return. Most of the staff (who had been good all year) had a sweet too!
Each year we hold a cake sale to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year with thanks to everyone who parted with their pennys.
We celebrated Roald Dahl Day, celebrating 100 years since Roald Dahl’s birth. Children and staff were invited to come to school dressed as character’s from their favourite story’s.
Areas of school were also decorated with a Roald Dahl theme
Children's responses to the Pantomime.
"I really enjoyed the Pantomime because we got to see funny things and we did not have to stay quiet - we could shout out."
"I enjoyed the comedy, singing and dancing - it made me laugh."
" I really enjoyed the sing-a-longs."
St Ann's came second in the Rotherham 7 a-side football tournament on Saturday the 27th of September.
Well done boys!
They played fantastic and are a credit to St Ann's School.
