Carols Around the Tree and The Christmas Fayre
This year ‘Carols around the Christmas Tree’ opened with a whole school, hearty rendition of ‘Oh Holy Night’, setting the festive atmosphere for all the pupils and their families. All classes performed their own special song, which they had been busy rehearsing throughout Advent. Years 1 and Reception gave a moving performance of ‘We want to tell you a story’, whilst Year 2 provided a Christmas tableau of the Nativity, with readings from the Christmas Story. The children had worked so hard to learn all of their lines, and delivered them to perfection, reading clearly and fluently, whilst also managing a touching rendition of Little Donkey.
The upper school sang beautifully, delivering traditional carols ‘Away in a Manger’ (Canadian Bears) and ‘Whilst Shepherds Watched their Flocks’ (American Eagles). Year 4&5 provided a poignant version of ‘Do You Hear What I Hear?’ before a rousing chorus of ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ invited all pupils, staff and parents to close the performance. Thank you to everyone involved, and we hoped you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
A fantastic festive Fayre was held after the ‘Carols Around the Tree’ on the final Friday afternoon. The Fundraising Team served up tasty treats, warming drinks and novelty items for all of the family, whilst also organising the Christmas raffle with plenty of presents for everybody. It was very well attended by pupils, staff and family, and raised a very successful £710.58. A huge thank you to is offered up to everyone in the Fundraising Team, for their efforts at the Fayre and across the whole school year.
