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.
