"The best thing I can say of the school was that it worked. It embedded in me habits of reading and thinking as well as an enduring curiosity about just about everything."

Infants Do the CBeebies Bauble Bop

Saturday, 20 December 2014

In a fun-packed day of filming, children from Bolton School’s Nursery, Nursery Class for 3 and 4 Year Olds and Infant School have been helping CBeebies prepare their Bauble Bops for Christmas! 

Filming in small groups, children aged 3 to 5 years, danced, clapped and cheered in a variety of school locations including in the outdoor play area, a special Santa’s grotto and besides the Christmas tree.  They even got the dinner ladies at the Infant School to join in with the bopping! 

Head of the Infant School, Mrs Debbie Northin, said: “The children had a wonderful time and showed no nerves whatsoever in front of the camera.  I am sure we have discovered some future stars of stage and screen today!  They – and their parents – will be very excited to see themselves on television over Christmas.”

The short recordings of children wearing Christmas hats, outfits and decorations will be used as “links” between programmes during the week running up to Christmas and the week afterwards.

They will run at 7.45am on Saturday 20 December, at 1.00pm on Sunday 21 December, at 1.20pm on Monday 22 December and at 6.20pm each day from Saturday 20 December to Wednesday 24 December, except Tuesday 23 November when it will be at 5.15pm.
