"Pupils are encouraged to volunteer, to lead, to perform, to try new things, to move outside their comfort zone and they emerge as fine, rounded, honourable young adults equipped to thrive and succeed wherever life takes them."

Pupils in Years 1 and 2 at Beech House, Bolton School’s Infant School, told the Christmas story through traditional carols, focusing on the true meaning of Christmas.

The children acted out the Nativity as the carols unfolded, beginning with ‘Starry Night’ to set the scene and continuing with well-known carols such as ‘Little Donkey’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks’, ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ and ‘We Three Kings’.

There were also some special treats as part of the programme. A group of six pupils gave a delightful and sweet rendition of ‘Away in a Manger’ as a series of solos. The children also sang the French carol ‘Viens Regarde’ with actions to help explain the foreign language lyrics.

Parents, grandparents and siblings were encouraged to join in and sing along with some of the carols, which made the event all the more enjoyable.

The performance ended with a rousing chorus of ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’ which really got everyone into the Christmas spirit.
