Christmas at The Vine
The festivities began with a film and craft evening for the pupils, enjoyed by everyone.
On Thursday 7th the pupils took part in a ‘Rudolph Run’ to raise funds for the Arthur Rank Hospice. All the pupils were invited to run 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 laps of the playground sporting Rudolph antlers to get them in the festive spirit.
We were joined by Arthur Bear who created great excitement when he arrived to the special worship that day. The school raised an amazing £913 for this worthy cause.
Year 2 performed their Nativity on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th December – ‘The Inn-Spectors’. Six inspectors visit Bethlehem to check that all the inns are up to scratch. They are horrified to find that a baby has been born in one of them. However, as the story is told to them by Mary, Joseph and the Donkey, they realise that this is a very special baby and that the stable is fit for a king.
With soldiers, baaing sheep, talking donkeys and stern inspectors, the play was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The children sang their hearts out and worked so hard to learn their lines. All the adults in Year 2 were extremely proud of them.
There were many more festivities enjoyed including the Early Years Choral Nativity, Year 1 Festive Singing, Carol Singing around the Christmas Tree for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. It’s been truly wonderful to hear the practising around school and to invite the parents to enjoy this too. The pupils concluded their activities with creating their own Christingle, the annual visit and service at Cambourne Church and of course Christmas Dinner.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break and best wishes for the New Year.
