Christmas in a Day
'Christmas in a Day' has become somewhat of a tradition at Exton & Greetham CE Primary School!
This year we began with our carol service in Greetham Church, where we told the story of the nativity and sang carols. The singing was fantastic, and class 3 all helped contribute to telling the story. Cathy then shared the message of the greatest Christmas present of all - the baby Jesus - and what his birth means to Christians everywhere. A huge thank you to Mr Davis for coming to play the organ and for entertaining us with 'Sleighride' at the end of the service.
It was then back to school to make Christmas hats in time for our Christmas dinner. Lizzie did a fantastic job in the kitchen cooking for 80, as the nursery came across to join us for lunch. The dinner was delicious - turkey with all the trimmings, followed by a chocolate log dessert. Crackers were pulled, jokes were shared, and it was lovely to have the whole school community together sharing a meal.
After a run around outside to work off some of our Christmas dinner, it was back into the hall for our party and disco. Disco Steve did a great job and FOEGS provided refreshments to keep our energy levels up. At 3pm we heard the sound of a bell and Father Christmas arrived to share some gifts. It was a fantastic end to a marvellous day!
