Welcome to

Exton & Greetham CE Primary School

Christmas in a Day

'Christmas in a Day' is always my favourite day of the year - and this year did not disappoint!


We started the day with a walk up to Exton church. It was lovely to walk and chat with the children. Thank you to all the extra adults who joined us for the walk. 


Our church service was led by Teal Class this year for the first time. Not only did the guide us through the story of Christmas with beautiful clear readings, but they also provided a beautiful tableau of the nativity. This was interspersed with the normal collection of favourite carols, including the now traditional 'Sheep, Sheep, Sheep', 'The Holly and the Ivy' in three parts, and 'Hark the Herald' with the descant sung by the headteacher!


After a slightly damp walk back to school, there was just time to create some Christmas hats in time for our Christmas dinner, beautifully cooked by Lizzy and her team. There were crackers and hats for everyone too!


After lunch we had our Christmas party, where the teachers led us in some party games. Just after 2pm we had a special visit from Father Christmas, who found time to pop in on his way to the North Pole. More games ensued, before it was finally hometime.


What a great day!
