An Alternative Christmas

As part of the Christmas Carol Concert, year 5 took a very different look at the Christmas story and the harsh reality facing a family in Tanzania expecting a baby. The events that unfolded in the script illustrated a very different story and told of the struggles to get clean water to bathe the newborn baby. The script can be downloaded here:  A Baby Is Born Script and the supporting PowerPoint presentation here:  A Baby is Born PowerPoint.

The Christmas gift for class 5DH was a Water Aid pump for a community in Africa, which was made all the more meaningful having told the story of hardship of Fatouma and her family.

The Christmas festivities also saw Year 5 making a Skype call to their German global partner school to talk about Christmas in the UK and Germany. They also enjoyed making German style Gingerbread as part of their science materials topic.
