Merry Christmas From Cavendish Primary School

December 16, 2011

For the past eighteen years, the last day of term before Christmas has usually involved chasing coursework, setting holiday homework, refusing repeated requests to play dodgy downloaded DVDs – “Oh go on, Miss, such & such a teacher has let us watch the start of it…” and sitting through end of term assemblies and “talent” shows. So, this being my first year not having to do anything school related, I should have have said a big fat “No” when asked if I wanted to attend an end of term concert. However, this message came from Cavendish –

If you are at a loose end tomorrow 9.30am for 30 mins, come to see our Y5/6 show. It’s amazing, very very different…

From the school that put on CavFest, this was a bit tempting. So, with seasonal snow falling, I once again found myself in a school hall, watching an end of term concert. Years 5 & 6 were buzzing with that kind of excitement that can only eminate from primary school kids – even the cutest of cute Year 7 pupil has usually started, out of necessity, to become a bit “cool” by the time Xmas rolls round.

This concert focused on the WW1 Christmas Day ceasefire, with the children singing carols in English, French & German, to a backdrop of very poignant images, and pop up narrators telling the story. The final song – “All Together Now” – said it all really…
