Nursery and Reception Christmas Sing-a-long
In previous years, we would usually invite parents into school for our Early Years Christmas Craft session and sing-along. Currently we are not allowed to have non-essential visitors in the school building. This means that we cannot invite parents/carers into school to take part in the workshop or watch the watch children’s sing-along live.
However, we do not want you to miss out on your child’s celebrations. This year we will be holding a Christmas workshop with your child in Nursery (morning) and Reception (afternoon) of Thursday 10th December 2020.
Children should come dressed as a Christmas character e.g. Joseph, Mary, shepherd, angel, snowman, Santa, reindeer, donkey etc.
The sessions would entail the following:
- Working time together, teachers to support Christmas activities.
- Children to sing-along to parents – Christmas medley
The teachers will be recording the short sing-a-long, which will then be uploaded to ‘YouTube’ for you to enjoy. We know that YouTube is a public site – we intend to name it Nursery Sing-along or Reception singalong without mentioning the school name. We will then send you a link to access this video, once the recording has been completed before the Christmas break. The video cannot be accessed by searching on ‘You Tube’, it will only be shared with parents who consent for their child to take part. Please do not share this link with others.
In order for your child to take part in the video recording, we need your consent. To access the form to do this, could you log onto the school website, click on the dark grey pencil ‘Forms’- Reception Sing-a-long consent or Nursery Sing-a-long consent. Type in your child’s name and say yes or no to your child taking part by Friday 4th December 2020. If there are insufficient numbers of parental consents received then the recording will not go ahead.
We appreciate that these arrangements will be very different from usual; we are trying to keep school routines and traditions with parents as close to normal as possible, within the current Government guidance and restrictions.
Thank you for your continued support.
