Christmas Goes Virtual

16 December 2020

During a time where it is not possible for parents and families to enter the school site, BCS Prep spread festive cheer a little differently this year with virtual Christmas performances.

On Wednesday 2nd December Kindergarten and Reception put on their costumes, practiced their lines, and performed their ‘Virtual Wriggly Nativity’ under the bright stage lights; this time however, their live audience were watching from home.

We loved watching Early Years recite their songs and actions, dancing along to the beat of the music. For some pupils it was their first ever school performance, and what an event to start off with!

Friday 4th December saw Year 1 and 2 perform their ‘Virtual Winter Wonder Performance’. Usually this time of year sees Pre-Prep perform their annual Christmas show for families, pupils and local care homes Glenhurst Manor and Edward May Court. This year we did things a little differently.

It was amazing to see how hard Year 1 and 2 had worked on their performance, with lots of singing, dancing and lines to remember. The show spread lots of Christmas cheer to celebrate the beginning of the festive period!

BCS Prep’s infamous festive cheer returned for one last time, with our most popular Christmas event ‘Carols Around the Tree’ livestreamed on the last day of term.

This event normally takes place on our quad on site, with families, pupils and staff gathering around our magnificent Christmas tree to sing carols together. We maintained this community spirit this year through a ‘Virtual Carols Around the Tree’, with all year groups participating in a carol singing spectacular.

More than 300 families tuned into the livestreams from home, singing along to the carols indoors, with pupils watching from their classrooms. It was a fantastic way to end the term, leaving children excited for the holiday break ahead.
