Christmas activities fuel the festive spirit of Juniors
Junior School pupils fully embraced the festive season as they took part in a wide range of activities and events in the run up to Christmas.
Children from Years Three to Six treated the audience at St George’s Church to a seamless performance of readings, singing and orchestral music at the 2022 Carol Service.
A review of the service will appear on the website later today.
Nursery and Reception pupils enjoyed performing their nativity ‘Whoops A Daisy, Angel’ to their family and friends.
The nativity, which is written by Nikki Davies, is the story of a disorganised but lovable angel who is chosen to show the way to Bethlehem. All of the children worked hard to learn their lines, sing the songs and remember dance routines.
Another Nikki Davies nativity, ‘The Inn-spectors’ was wonderfully performed by Year One and Two pupils in the Main Hall.
The fun story sees ‘inn-spectors’ visit Bethlehem to check the quality of accommodation and their amazement of finding some visitors staying in a stable. But these are special visitors and this is no ordinary baby!
The boys and girl delivered sterling performances that had the audience enthralled from the very beginning.
Classrooms were buzzing with excitement as pupils worked with their teachers and family members to create Christmas wishes that where then hung on trees in rooms and the reception.
Wishes this year included good health for everyone, an end to homelessness, a comforting family and teddy bears.
Donning Santa hats and reindeer antlers, Nursery girls and boys had lots of fun taking part in creative crafts.
They created Santa’s face – complete with beard – on a paper plate, made scrumptious looking reindeer cakes and took part in a festive obstacle course where they tiptoed on ‘rooftops’, made their way through ‘chimneys’ and left presents under the tree.
Reception enjoyed a very festive ‘Elf Day’ as they completed a number of Christmas crafts whilst listening to Christmas music.
Activities included designing and decorating stockings and making a paper bag elf. They also enjoyed a Christmas film in the afternoon with hot chocolate and biscuits.
Visit from Santa
Boys and girls from Nursery to Year Two had a big surprise when Father Christmas visited their classrooms to hand out presents.
Even though he is very busy ahead of Christmas Day, Santa took time to answer some amazing questions, such as “how do reindeer fly” and “why does Rudolph have a red nose”.
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed Altru Drama’s fabulous fun-filled performance of ‘Charlotte’s Web’.
Kicking off E.B White’s tale of an unlikely friendship between a pig and a spider with a song, the performers jumped straight into the action, with a little help from the audience!
Pupils put their creative skills to excellent use during a Christmas Crafts Afternoon.
Cards, wreaths, fridge magnets and elves made from cups all made an appearance and the children are excited to take their creations home.
Taz Entertainments delivered a fun magic show which the pupils could not get enough of! The girls and boys gasped in amazement at the tricks on show and it was a great way to end the Autumn term!
