Christmas Performances 2021

 

Nursery 

December 15th is the Nursery Christmas concert for parents to be held at 3pm. Booking details/links will be sent out in early December. For those children who only attend mornings, parents are welcome to bring children in with them at 3pm to be part of the Nursery performance. The children will be performing several festive songs and showing you some of the things they have been doing/ learning in the Nursery this term. A costume for Nursery is not necessary as they will be wearing Christmas jumpers on this day. 

 

Reception to Year 3

We will be holding two Christmas Nativity plays in school.

Reception/ Y1 will be leading one Nativity play and Y2 / Y3 will be leading the other. It was such a shame last year that we were unable to invite parents so this year we are going to go all guns blazing! We will be practising in assembly time and in small groups throughout November and will send invites to parents at the end of this month so that you can book a show and come along (see dates, times and details below). School plays are incredibly valuable for all sorts of reasons. Here are just a few of the things that performances achieve: 

 

  • Improve vocabulary, reading skills, and reading comprehension 
  • Improve speaking and presentation skills 
  • Include EVERY student, regardless of academic ability or language skills 
  • Build confidence and social skills 
  • Incorporate drama, music, art, and movement 
  • And…Are incredibly fun!

 

Every child will have the opportunity to have a part. Some parts are larger than others but everyone will join in. Please do not worry about the role your child gets as everyone will have the chance to shine!

Your child has now been assigned a role and this has/ will be sent home their portion of the script (if applicable – mainly Year 1, 2 and 3) and the songs to practise - we've included  links to the songs and a PDF song sheet at the bottom of this page so please do get practicing at home!

 

Please help them to learn their lines and feel as confident as possible. We will not send you the whole script home as we want it to be a surprise for you and your family! We also ask that parents assist with costumes. Please do not spend lots of money – a plain T-shirt and tea towel is often the best! Items such as wings, halos, sheep masks etc will be provided by school. We will ask that you send named costumes in in a named carrier bag by November 26th so we can ensure everyone has something to wear.  

 

Mrs Gladwin, Miss Peck, Mrs Couling and myself are so excited to be working on our show, and I think your children will truly love and grow from the process. We cannot wait to share the performances with you.
