Crayke Chronicle Friday 11th December Riding Lights - Nearly the Goat Christmas with the Aliens I am very proud of all the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. As a result of CHASA’s generous support, the whole school will be treated to a performance of Nearly the Goat on Tuesday 15th December. Despite illness and end of term tiredness they managed to perform “Christmas with the Aliens” three times this week. Our wonderful staff team worked exceptionally hard to make the nativity a great success. Nearly the Goat has been hugely popular in schools throughout the region, and I am sure all the children will really enjoy the performance. For those of you who didn’t see it; the traditional Christmas story is retold to some alien visitors who become stranded on earth and meet a group of school children rehearsing their Christmas play. Please can I remind everyone that any photos/video taken should not appear on social media. Thank you for your cooperation. Next Week… Tuesday, 15th December - Riding Lights Production of “Nearly the Goat” at the Sports Hall at 10.00 a.m. Christmas Lunch Wednesday, 16th December - Christmas party in Where's Church this week? Sunday December 13th 10.30am Holy Communion at Brandsby. All welcome. We are looking forward to seeing lots of parents, carers and friends at the school Carol Service, which will be at St Cuthbert, Crayke at 2pm on Thursday 17th December. If you are given the posada (travelling Mary and Joseph) belonging to the church and you aren't sure who to pass it on to, please give me a call on 822809 as I have a couple of non-school households in the village who would love to host them for a night.
