A magical Christmas 2016!

We held so many Christmas themed events at the end of the term- and every one of them was inclusive, and heavily community and arts based. Our Christmas Show this year was a ‘Greengate’ version of Roald Dahl’s BFG-the GFG (Greengate Friendly Giant) and included a cast of 120 children-it’s anti-bully message was clear!

Mrs Sadler used our donated Technics electric piano to accompany all our seasonal events…….

Then there was our annual Christmas ‘Music Challenge’ where each class presented a multicultural Christmas song….

…….accompanied by our choir and ‘uke’ group of course!

Our choir also went out to sing some festive songs and carols for our local community…..

We also had a Christmas tree in the Dalton St Mary’s festival this year…with ‘Tudor Roses’ by class 6H and class 4G!

Finally, there was our Nativity and Christingle service to finish the term. Class 3SM told us the story of The Christmas Mouse, and year six made the Christingles. Children, staff and parents joined together for singing and the service was a lovely end to a terrific but busy term!
