Dear Parents, Carers and Governors,

What a busy two terms we have had. The children have worked incredibly hard and are ready for a well-deserved rest (as I guess are you!) We have seen beautiful Nativity performances from FSU and KS1 and I am always absolutely amazed at the wealth of talent at the younger end of school. I am sure you enjoyed the performances as much as I did.

Thankfully we only had to take one snow day last week and we were very grateful for your patience and co-operation when entering and leaving the school site during a whole week of restricted access.

On behalf of the whole staff, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing the children ready for school on the morning of Thursday 4th January 2018.

Best wishes,

Caroline Witton

Swimming Gala.

The day had come for the North Oxfordshire swimming gala finals, and the brilliant Year 5/6 girls team entered the pool side full of determination and confidence. Sadly, due to an injury, the team of six girls was reduced to five, with Pippa Cain-James on the poolside to cheer her team mates. However, Cara Roe, Katie Groves, Ana Green, Anoushka Tatineni and Isla Dunn were ready and raring to go.

Each of Langford's brilliant swimmers competed extremely well, giving everything they could in order to achieve their very best. With Mr North's team-talk ringing in their ears, they set off to repeat their success from the Bicester finals.

The afternoon went extremely well with a 2nd place finish in the freestyle relay, kicking off the preceedings. This was soon joined by an emphatic victory in the freestyle individual race from the talented Cara Roe. Not only did she set the fastest time in the Bicester finals last month, she can now also claim to be the fastest girl in North Oxfordshire. Well done!

Other strong results followed soon after, with Ana Green finishing 3rd in her butterfly race, plus Anoushka and Isla bringing home a solid 4th placed finish in their two individual races. The girls rounded off a strong performance with a fantastic 3rd place finish in the medley relay.

However, with many other talented swimmers representing their own schools, the girls finished in an extremely impressive 3rd place overall, missing out on 2nd place by 1 point! Nonetheless, we will wear the bronze medal with pride.

This marks only the second time that Langford Village has got to the latter stage of this swimming competition. Making it this far, let alone finishing in 3rd place, is a huge achievement for the girls.

Well done to each pupil who represented the school, everyone who came to support is very proud. Thank you to Mrs Tatineni who came to help on both days, and to any parents who made the trip to Banbury to cheer on the girls.

Children in Need

WOW! Langford Village School raised over £332 for Children in Need!

A big thank you to all the children who took part, also to the parents for all the cake donations that were received.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, School Council
