Christmas around the World. KS1 performance.

Sunday 14th December | 17 comments

We are printing a programme for our performance of ‘Christmas around the World.’ This is an e -version of the program so you can share it with your friends and family.
Christmas around the World.

A magical box of crackers is delivered and together we join the child as they discover how Christmas is celebrated around the world.

We hope that you all enjoy our show. Together we have learned a lot about different countries around the world. We can locate them on the globe and in an atlas. We know how they celebrate Christmas and that in many countries there are people of different religions. Learning about the weather in other countries has taught us that not everyone thinks of snow at Christmas.

This year the children are sitting on benches along the both sides of the hall. We hope that this means that you have a better opportunity to see your child singing and that the singing sounds even more impressive, as it will be a little like ‘surround sound!’ This seating plan is designed to help you select a good seat so that you can sit near your child’s class. Everyone should have a good view of the stage, so you will see each class as they get up to perform their dances and tell you about their countries.



We have even challenged ourselves to learn how to say ‘Merry Christmas’ in some of the languages!  Can you post a comment wishing everyone a ‘Merry Christmas’ in a different language?

Hi i’m Sophie from Middleham School as its nearly Christmas we have been very busy making and decorating Christmas crafts ready to sell on the market in the next village. I have seen the photos of you acting out Christmas around the world so I would like you to guess the language that is at the start of my comment.

    Froche weihnachten und ein gutes neues jahr. That message says merry Christmas and a happy new year in German. Hi it’s Eleanor from Middle ham school one of the things we do every year in school is we go and sing to elders at the key center after they have had their Christmas dinner, we do this to brighten their mood and to give them a little bit of Christmas spirit.
    Happy Christmas!

    Happy Christmas to you all in Class 2 . This evening we are having a thing called Christingle. This is a church tradition that we do every year , we sing carols and say a reading then we get a candle to put money in and give it to a charity called The Children’s society. Then we trade it for an orange with a candle and sweets on a cocktail stick, then we eat them after. Joyeux Noël that is happy Christmas!

    Happy Christmas all of you in class 2. In our classroom we have a unusual tradition which comes from Catalunya in Spain. We have a Caga Tio, which is a log which has a face on it and we feed it anything. It eats the food, and then gets fatter… and by Friday it will be ready for our party. We sing a special song in Catalan, and it poos out sweets for us all! All Catalan children have one of these and they feed it from the 8th December to Christmas Eve. About 4 years ago, we found out about this Christmas tradition from Mr Bosch, a Catalan friend of Mrs Monaghan’s, and we have been doing it ever since!
    Feliç nadal!
