The Christmas season creates special memories for parents, carers and families to cherish and this year has been no exception. In school the children have taken part in a host of seasonal activities with the Christmas performances the highlight of the festive celebrations.
Central to all the year group shows was the traditional nativity story but told from a different perspective in productions suitable for the age of the children involved.
Reception pupils delighted audiences with their performance of Whoops-a-Daisy Angel, the story of a disorganised but loveable angel chosen to show the way to Bethlehem.
A flock of curious sheep were the focal point of Year One’s show Hey Ewe, which captured the wonder and excitement of the Christmas story.
Hosanna Rock performed by Year Two was a lively and enjoyable performance that conveyed the true meaning of Christmas with lots of enthusiastic singing and dancing.
“Staff and children have worked incredibly hard on these performances since returning from half term and it really showed. I am very proud of what they have achieved. The standard of singing, dancing and acting was very high and proves that children can achieve great things when they feel confident and supported,” says Head teacher Andrew Moorcroft.
During the last weeks of term the whole school attended a Christmas service at the local church, pupils enjoyed a party day with visit from Santa, the school catering team served up a delicious Christmas dinner and there was a lot of Christmas creativity in the classrooms.
