The upcoming dates for this term have been set for several months now, so I am sure that you are well aware of these, but please cast your eye over the end of term arrangements and the remaining Christmas events.
Key Stage 1 have their Nativity performance as usual. Key Stage 2 are not performing a separate Carol Concert this year; instead, it will be merged with the Church Service on the last day of term, creating a ‘Carol Church Service’ (because everyone loves singing Christmas Carols with children).
I hope that you understand that this is due to the many hours loss of learning to rehearse songs over and over and the logistics / many hours of additional teacher workload to put on each event.
Upon discussions with staff, this was deemed too much learning loss/workload on top of the KS2 Summer performance – so, I’m sure you’ll appreciate that we had to choose just one.
This is a trial for this year and can be changed for next year, but we very much hope that you enjoy the ‘Carol Church Service’ combined, instead of the two separate events.
