Christmas Performances – Born In A Barn & The Mouse in Santa’s House

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Our festive musical drama performances have taken place in the school hall; we were treated to the ‘Mouse In Santa’s House’ by Year 1 and Year 2, and the ‘Born In A Barn’ performance by Pre Reception and Reception. For those of you that were lucky enough to join us, you will know that the Lower School girls did brilliantly! Having the bravery and perseverance to stand in front of a large crowd is very impressive, and even more so when the oldest child is in Year 2! They made us burst with pride as they performed every moment of the shows with talent, confidence, commitment and passion. But such success would not be possible without the help of others in the Lyonsdown community; pupils, parents and teachers (and all that they do behind the scenes). We want to extend our special thanks to all of our parents for supplying such fantastic costumes.

But the nativity is not the only example of such collaboration in evidence this week: thank you to the FLS team for all of their hard work with Santas Grotto, the raffle and the personalised Christmas items, and to all of you who have contributed to a variety of events. These are all examples of the fantastic atmosphere and team spirit that is created when the Lyonsdown community works together.

It is hard work and collaboration that sees a school through the final week of the Autumn Term. Our teachers here at Lyonsdown enjoy the responsibility of creating memorable moments and memories for our pupils. However, we could not create these memories without the children’s cooperation. We hope that your children are all enjoying the happy Christmas spirit that pervades our school at the moment and that it fills them with memories that will last a lifetime!

So with that in mind, it’s full steam ahead for the final week of term.
