Things have been feeling very festive at Tannery Drift First School in Royston.

The Christmas season kicked off in spectacular fashion with performances from the reception classes with their play ‘A Miracle in Town’ and the nursery class with their Christmas songs performance.

Dressed as snowmen, the nursery children wowed an audience of parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters and friends with their lovely singing – Jingle Bells was said to be a particular highlight.

Meanwhile the reception children took on their first on-stage acting parts, having spent several weeks preparing for speaking in front of a large audience.

The festivities continued with a Key Stage 1 performance of ‘Christmas with the Aliens’.

Children have been photographed in their performance costumes by school governor Andrew Ford, of Perrrymanford Photography, with photos being sold as part of the school’s fundraising.

The school rounded off the term off with a visit from Imajica Theatre Company performing a pantomime for the whole school – funded for the children by the Friends of Tannery Drift – Christmas dinner day and class Christmas parties.
