School Nativities Dazzle Proud Parents
Now that the final weeks of term have come to a close, we can finally look back on them with appreciation – mainly because it will be at least another year until we have to go through it all again! Yet despite its busyness, there is no denying that the Michaelmas Term is a magical one.
This year, pupils in Year 3 kicked off the celebrations with their informative Nativity Assembly, which told the story of how Silent Night came into existence. It was a lively and sweet performance from the children, which resonated with staff and pupils alike.
It was then time to present our Nursery and Pre-Prep nativities. We often hear that wonderful things come in small packages and this was definitely the case for this year’s productions.
Our Pre-prep pupils worked extremely hard in the weeks leading up to the nativity, which was evident in their fantastic performance. Every child was given a moment to shine on stage and rose to the occasion with true Christmas spirit! There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Mary and Joseph tenderly sang a beautiful duet, and the energy of the final number really did raise the roof!
In amongst the nativities and assemblies, the pupils enjoyed some much-deserved down time. In the final week of term, they sat down to enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner (trimmings and all!). Everyone had a blast pulling crackers, telling jokes and singing songs with their friends.
It was then time to party! Year 3 had a fabulous time playing balloon relay games, stick the nose on Rudolph and musical hedgehogs. There was also time for the more traditional party games of pop the balloon and pass the parcel. A fun and festive afternoon for all!
As a final treat, Pre-prep pupils received not one, but two special visitors! This year, helping Santa to distribute his presents was Louie the Falabella! The look on the children’s faces upon seeing this new miniature furry friend was one of both excitement and disbelief. Santa certainly had a run for his money that day …
And with that, with now wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
