The Grinch came to our school
One cold wet day
He said no-one should have any fun
He stole our Christmas away!
Every single one
They've come to school to learn to write
And not to have much fun.
And inspected every book
He tutted to himself
And gave a dirty look.
The children felt very sad
But did as they were told
They carried on regardless
Their PE was full of dancing
They even learnt to sing
The joy was there for all to see
You couldn’t fault a thing.
To see what they had done
He took one look and said
"You must invite everyone."
So, Christmas came regardless
Not with ribbons, bells or bows
It came from children’s hearts
As every parent knows.
Who remembers the joy of the Christmas Play?
Oh No! said Jacquie, "Think of me rehearsing 2 nativities! Joseph is ill so Mary is a single parent!"
Oh No! the teacher is away, who knows what to do?
I've certainly seen a few different productions under way on my supply teaching journey. I never quite see the end production but giggle as I remember the minor disasters in our play. At least I am no longer in charge.
Most of all, difficult though it can be, it is always fantastic seeing a school prepared to put on a production for the parents. It is indeed one of those, "Lovely", moments.
Don't let them take it away!
Indeed the advisors did try to take ours away BUT it came just the same!
