Over the final two weeks of the Autumn term, the Christmas festivities well and truly began in Kingfishers and Lower School with the performances of our Christmas Plays. Over the last few weeks, all the children have been rehearsing very hard, learning lines, putting costumes together and practising songs until they were singing them all day long! Year 1 and Year 2 began the proceedings, performing Christmas with the Aliens on Tuesday. Taking quite a novel approach to the Christmas story, six stranded aliens were taught the true meaning of Christmas and found themselves being part of the stable scene in Bethlehem! All the children, from the villagers to the angels, and the Kings to the camels, worked tremendously hard and their efforts made the production a resounding success.
Reception and Cottage children presented a more traditional Nativity on Wednesday afternoon, impressing everyone with their confidence and certainly sharing the Christmas message in a special way. All Kingfishers staff are immensely proud of the children. They deserve to feel very proud of their superb achievements.
Lower School's performances of the The Little Nutcracker were simply wonderful to watch! The teamwork between Lower School staff and pupils was so evident and everyone worked exceptionally hard to ensure it was a success. It is quite an achievement to think 88 children were involved and all had a role to play, whether it was dancing, speaking or back stage.
We are constantly reminded that if you aim high, the children never let you down. Congratulations to everyone!
