This year some special chefs helped the Smith family find the essential ingredients that are necessary for a perfect Christmas! We discovered that these ingredients included decorations, with Nursery as fairy lights, and 1MC as shimmering tinsel. It also included wonderful dancing and singing robins (Reception), a whole cast of Father and Mrs Christmases (Year 1LS) Christmas trees, and the real Father Christmas – of course – bringing lots of presents with his elves, played by Year Two pupils.

The chefs helped us remember that there were more important ingredients that came from the very first Christmas long ago – Mary and Joseph, stars, shepherds, sheep and angels (Kindergarten with some help from Year Two angels and shepherds!), wise men in shades bearing gifts and explained that the most important ingredient of all was the baby Jesus.

The play was much enjoyed by everyone taking part and more importantly by all our parents, guests and friends who came to watch. Well done on such a vibrant and wonderful performance by all the pupils, and especially the Year Two pupils who learnt their words and solos so well.
