Following hot on the heels of Presentation Night came our 'Christmas Countdown' assembly, with an Advent Calendar theme.
6/7T presented the calendar, with Santa arriving in his sleigh pulled by reindeer and pushed by elves (tricky wheels on those sleighs!). R/1/2AE presented two songs: 'Let's Go Carolling' (with some Year 7 helpers) and 'Christmas Day In the Morning' setting out the Christmas Story.
3/4MN sang a rock version of 'We're the Three Kings' and the kings - all ten of them - sang with gusto and conviction.
5M performed 'Jingle Bells' on lots of different instruments including trombones, boom-whackers and glockenspiels. 6/7S were dressed as elves in the Christmas Cracker joke factory and told some awfully bad jokes.
Lots of thanks to all the parents and grandparents who supported us, to the teachers and SSOs who helped with props and costumes and of course to Mr Tuck and Miss Secomb for all their time writing the songs, rehearsing the classes and running the assembly.
