Christmas at Woodside
The Christmas season started at Woodside with the Friend's Christmas Bazaar followed by our infant choir singing at St Mary's Christmas Tree Festival and local sheltered accommodation. Year one made stained glass windows and enjoyed other Christmas activities at Barleylands and infants and juniors enjoyed their Christmas Disco before each Junior year group in turn led us in a traditional Christmas Carol Service at St Mary's. Following this, each year from nursery to year 2 entertained their parents with Christmas concerts; including The Fairy Tale Land Nativity Show, Stable Boy, and Rock Around the Flock. We finished the term with Christmas Jumper Day, Christmas parties, and Christmas Lunch served by staff; with crackers from the Friends, who also provided a professional but audience participation pantomime - Puss in Boots. Christmas is a time for charity and with staff donations our concert and carol service collections raised £971 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
