Our lovely Reception classes have created their own Nativities and produced some lovely artwork too. The children have also recorded Christmas songs and added them to the videos using voice over technology. Well done Reception, these wonderful videos help us to remember the true meaning of Christmas and bring us all some very special Christmas magic.
'Twas the Night Before Christmas by Reception
A Lamb's Tale is an original Christmas story written by Mrs Powell. It is the story of the Nativity but not as you know it! Our tale has some added extras and is inspired by some of Julia Donaldson's books - can you spot them all? The children have also learnt Makaton to sign the carol, Silent Night. Thank you Mrs Powell for writing this lovely story and for teaching the children to sign Makaton and a big well done to Year 3.
