Christingle (17.12.13)Posted: 18th December 2013
It is always wonderful to see St Andrew’s Church decorated so beautifully for our Christingle Service. We enjoyed lovely solos from Isabelle Mckinlay in ‘How far is it to Bethlehem’ and Georgina Hunt who sang the first verse of ‘Away in a Manger’. The singing of Junior Song, Years 3 -5, Staff and Parents filled the church creating a wonderful Christmas feeling. We enjoyed numerous readings from Year 5 pupils who all spoke clearly explaining the meaning of the Christingle. The Christingle Service is a lovely way to put everybody in the Christmas spirit.
Home Clothes Day for Rainbows (16.12.13)Posted: 16th December 2013

Year 2 Christmas Play (11.12.13)Posted: 13th December 2013
Ofsted inspectors arrived at Spratton Hall to witness the chaotic rehearsals of the Nativity play! This witty performance was a very different take on the Christmas Play. However, the standard of acting was, as expected, outstanding with all of the children contributing in their own unique ways. The singing in particular, deserves a special mention. We would like to thank Mrs Hanford and Mrs Fountain for their time and expertise, as well as our assistants invaluable help.
Reception & Year 1 Christmas Play (11.12.13)Posted: 13th December 2013
This year’s Reception and Year 1 Christmas “Not Now” Nativity told the touching tale of Sarah, the innkeeper's daughter, who had a wonderful song that she wanted to sing - but no-one had time to listen!
“Mop the floors,” and “bake the bread,” shouted the innkeepers as they busily prepared for hundreds of visitors. “Not now, we’re too busy,” grumbled the shepherds as they tried to keep track of their lively flock of sheep. Surrounded by sparkling, twirling, beautiful angels, and glistening stars who just loved to twinkle, Sarah persists in her quest to sing her song. “Not now, we’re following a star,” protest the three Kings, accompanied by their Page’s and plodding camels.
Finally, Sarah realised why everyone had been so busy when she comes across Mary and Joseph, and a very special baby, resting warm and cosy in her parent’s stable – and also discovers that they make the perfect audience for her cheery little song that she has been so desperate to sing!
