Covid Christmas (Eve Eve) 2020
This year will see a very different Xmas in every school in the country. Here at Parklands, it breaks our heart that we can’t do our traditional Xmas Eve Eve extravaganza, not being able to provide 800 meals for the community, not having Santa giving 800 presents out, not seeing the real-life reindeers on the school car park and not seeing the real unicorns walking around the hall will be heart-breaking… but we have a plan, we have a Parklands Plan! Christmas and December are the most beautiful and best time of the year and this year will be no different for our wonderful children and families. This thread of events will showcase what we did to make Christmas different but just as spectacular. All social distancing will be followed and keeping bubbles together will be followed to ensure when we close, we are as safe as possible during the holiday. This is what you will find …..
- Decorating the Xmas Tree – can we sing to create Christmas spirit and to light up the tree? All the 3 bubbles will sing separately at different times.
- A Traditional Carol Concert – again in bubbles Both will be made into a short video to share with parents.
- Every day in December is Christmas jumper day – meaning value for money for the expensive jumpers.
- Every child has been donated a Santa hat so if you have not got a jumper, you are still dressed for Christmas.
- Rock Kidz will be rocking the house down with live Bubble assesblies
- Now Press Play will be taking our children on some wonderful Christmas journeys.
- #AimHigh20 Festival will see a live steam event with @STE3AMco where we celebrate art and creativity for a full weekend. I was lucky enough to get to perform with Boff Whalley from Chumbawumba.
“”HE GOT KNOCKED DOWN… But he got up again” Delighted to announce that the legendary @BoffWhalley of #Chumbawumba and @CommonersChoir is going to be part of: #AIMHIGH20 UK Tour and Festival #LoveStreaming from Leeds with @ChrisDysonHT singing cos he’s winning Info below https://t.co/5JJI2Hrggw”
- Christmas is not Christmas without the traditional Pantomime, M&M Productions are presenting a Covid safe Panto to all the 3 bubbles. “Oh yes they are.”
- Christmas Parties will be in the hall again in Bubbles … and I am proud to say that we have secured Santa for 4 full days to give out 380 presents from Lapland. Thanks to Give a Gift for the donations.
- Having food is essential over the holiday time, thus we are sending EVERY family home with a Winter Hamper, kindly donated and funded from Give a Gift. 251 hampers will zoom home on the last week of term.
- A very generous person who wishes to stay anonymous gave the school £11400 meaning that every child in school will receive a voucher for £25 for to be spent at Aldi. These brilliant vouchers can only be spent on food as well.
