The children and teachers at Dunmow St Mary’s have tackled the challenge of producing a Christmas show for their families with enthusiasm and determination. The children in reception have filmed a singing and dancing celebration of everything Christmas whilst the classes in Key Stage 1 have had a wonderful time putting on their Christmas play ‘A Bundle of Joy’. It tells the story of the nativity from the perspective of a very grumpy donkey called Grumble. They filmed their scenes separately in their bubbles before putting it all together in a video which will be shared with the school community.
The older children too didn’t want to miss out on the Christmas spirit and all classes filmed their own Christmas extravaganza to be watched virtually. Scenes included Christmas dances, comedy skits and jokes including ‘how to have a Covid safe Christmas and with no singing allowed signing along to ‘Last Christmas’. Throw in a snow machine and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Dunmow St Mary’s.
