This week we have 8 Christmas performances! The school has been alive with the sound of Christmas carols and songs, and children wearing traditional and sparkly costumes. We expect you may have seen and heard children practising their lines, songs and dances.
There was much excitement when the children went into the hall and saw that the stage was up and the lights were set. Year 1 and 2 children from both Broadclyst and Westclyst Primary Schools will be kicking us off on Tuesday morning, followed by the Reception classes on Wednesday.
On Tuesday lunchtime a group of children will be walking over to Clyst Caring to sing carols. They have previously been very well received and the children have enjoyed talking to the people who have just enjoyed their Christmas lunch.
On Friday will be holding the Nativity performed by the children in the nursery. Many of the children will be coming in for an extra session to take part. They have been working very hard learning all of the songs. We are sure that it will be an enjoyable show, the first for many of the children and parents.
On Thursday the chamber choir will be singing at a concert organised by Poltimore House and performed in the chapel. They have been practising hard over the past half term and are looking forward to sharing their hard work. Following the concert, there will be mulled wine and mince pies, and a raffle, with all of the proceeds going to the renovations of the building.
The week will be ending on a high with Christmas Jumper Day and a delicious Christmas dinner where the children will be served by their teacher.
We hope to see many of you in the audience and enjoying a cup of tea and mince pie in the café!
