This Saturday’s cross country meet at Charlecote Park has been cancelled, due to the strong winds.

Santa’s Surprise

When our youngest performers, Little Crofters Pre-school, take to the stage for their Christmas play, it is always a real treat.  The theatre must look enormous to the three and four year olds and yet, they always manage to perform a heart-warming Christmas tale. 

The children told the story of ‘Santa’s Surprise’, how the elves, fairies, snowflakes, stars and chefs wanted to show Santa how much they really appreciated all of his hard work.  Santa’s helpers decided to bake Santa a surprise, so that he would have a special gift at Christmas time as well.  Each group added a special ingredient, to make a perfect plum pudding for Santa to enjoy.

Little Crofters Pre-school worked very hard remembering their lines, where and when they had to move to on the stage and the words to all the songs which they so beautifully sang, including a rendition of ‘Twinkle, twinkle, little star’ in French!

Brille, brille, petite étoile !
Dis-moi, dis-moi, qui tu es.
Tout là-haut au firmament
Tel un diamant dans le ciel.
Brille, brille, petite étoile !
Dis-moi, dis-moi, qui tu es.

Merry Christmas from Little Crofters Pre-school!
