Christmas Concert

 

Please find the words to the songs at the bottom of this page.

 

Games and PE

Games, outdoor kit will be required on a Wednesday. This should be a change of clothes with trainers or daps for outside, as the weather gets colder a hoodie or sweatshirt will be required.

PE for 3N will be on a Thursday morning, and for 3B on a Monday morning this will be in the hall and the children will be barefoot so need no footwear, just an indoor kit. 

 

Water Bottles

It would be really useful for children to have re-usable water bottles in class that they can refill each day.   We have water fountains with fresh water and want to promote drinking plenty of water to remain hydrated and also to promote less plastic waste.   We will ensure the children bring them home regularly to enable a good wash to take place!

 

Reading

We have given the children reading books and diaries and would ask that you spend at least 10 minutes reading with your child every day.   Children will be told next week which day they will need to bring their books in to read with their teacher, we are still getting round to grouping children as you can imagine.

 

Spelling

Children will be given spellings to learn for each Friday.  We support learning of spelling in school but the children do need to learn these at home as it is a homework task.   It is better to spend some time each day learning them rather than just the night before the test.   Thank you for your help with this.

Please find this week's spellings below.

 

RM Easimaths - online maths practice

Children will be given reminders of their log ins for this next week.   We will show the children what levels they are on and will remind them of how to log on.   This is then something they can do independently at home.   We really feel this benefits the children and have seen excellent results when used regularly.

 

GIGLETS - online reading and comprehension practice

Children will be reminded of their log ons for this next week, though some may be able to remember them.   We will be reminding the children of how to use this valuable resource to assist them with reading and to simply develop a love of reading.   This will not replace books but will work alongside to give a greater choice.

 

Topic

Our topic and science work will be based on the human body.   It's title is Blood, Bones and Gory Bits.

Christmas Song Words Year 3 and 4 concert 2018

 

The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas

 

Verse 1 The stars are coming out for Christmas,

Shining brightly like they do each year.

But the stars that are shining brightest

Are the ones that you see standing here.

And oh what joy we’ll bring you,

With the Christmas songs we’ll sing you,

There won’t be a dry eye in the place.

And if you’ve had a bad day,

And things have not gone your way,

We’ll put a Christmas smile upon your face.

 

Verse 2 The stars are coming out for Christmas,

There’s so much razzle-dazzle on the way!

With sparkle and with glitter,

We are here to brighten up your day.

So get those hands a-clapping

Let’s see those toes a-tapping,

As we fill the air with oom-pa-pa!

The Christmas bells are ringing,

This place is really swinging,

Because tonight everyone’s a star!

Because tonight everyone’s a star!

 

 

 

 

 

Send Me On My Way

 

Verse 1 Festive greetings sent by internet

Are ones to disregard.

Have some Yuletide etiquette,

And send a Christmas card.

 

Chorus Write a message of love and hope,

Pop me in an envelope,

Take me to a red post box

And send me on my way.

And send me on my way.

 

Verse 2 We can brighten the dullest space,

Relieve that winter chill,

When we stand above your fireplace

Or on your window sill.

 

Chorus Write a message of love and hope…..

 

Verse 3 You can buy us in a high street store

For just a pound or two,

But a Christmas card means more

When it’s made by you.

 

Chorus Write a message of love and hope…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boogie-Woogie Santa

 

Verse 1 Well he’s a boogie-woogie Santa,

He’s a cool dude dressed in red,

Who dances down your chimney

When you’re tucked up in bed.

He leaves you Christmas presents,

Then zooms off on his sled!

 

Chorus Hey there, Santa! (Boogie-Woogie Santa)

Hey there, Santa! (Boogie-Woogie Santa)

Hey Santa Claus won’t ya come and boogie-woogie with me!

 

Verse 2 Well he’s a boogie-woogie Santa

With his reindeer and his elves,

Who help him to deliver

All the toys stacked on his shelves,

But only to boys and girls

Who behave themselves!

 

Chorus Hey there, Santa…..

 

(Instrumental, during which Santa and helpers give out presents – perhaps to lucky members of the audience!)

 

Verse 3 Well he’s a boogie-woogie Santa,

And he likes the odd mince pie,

And a glass of sherry

Whenever he drops by.

So leave a winter warmer

For winter’s warmest guy!

 

Chorus Hey there, Santa…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Won’t It Snow?

 

Chorus Why won’t it snow? We’d like to know.

It never seems to snow at Christmas.

Not a single flake! Oh, for pity’s sake,

Why won’t it snow on Christmas day.

 

Verse 1 Our umpteen layers of woollies

Keep us toasty and warm.

We feel so insulated

We’d get through an Arctic storm, so…..

 

Chorus Why won’t it snow…..

 

Verse 2 How cool to build a snowman

Outside in the yard,

But we find building snowmen

Without snow is really hard! Oh…..

 

Chorus Why won’t it snow…..

 

Verse 3 We’d love to fight with snowballs

Once washing up’s been done,

But throwing balls of fresh air

At each other isn’t fun! Oh…..

 

Chorus Why won’t it snow…..

 

(As the opening bars of the final verse are heard, the children kneel in prayer, with hands clasped together.)

 

Verse 4 We’d sacrifice our presents

Without shedding a tear,

If only you would make it snow

On Christmas day this year!

 

Chorus Please make it snow, lots and lots of snow,

We really need some snow this Christmas.

Loads of lovely flakes! For all the children’s sakes

Please make it snow this Christmas day.

 

 

 

The Christmas Tree Song

 

Verse 1 Christmas trees, we’re Christmas trees,

Spiky and prickly and green.

But dress us up and we become

The grooviest trees on the scene.

Hang from us some tinsel and baubles,

Golds and silvers and reds,

And don’t forget to stick a star

Or angel on our heads.

 

Verse 2 Christmas trees, we’re Christmas trees,

Covered in diamond lights,

We bring a sparkle to the room,

A beautiful, glamorous sight.

Songs of joy are sung around us,

Presents piled up below.

Christmas trees give every home

A warm and happy glow.

 

Verse 3 Christmas trees, we’re Christmas trees,

So many varieties around.

We come as plastic fold-aways,

Or freshly-cut straight from the ground.

Whether artificial or real,

Whatever your choice may be,

Just make sure, in pride of place,

You have a Christmas tree.

 

 

Christmas Dinner Is A Winner

 

Verse 1 Christmas dinner is a winner,

The turkey is a whopper!

There’s enough to fill us up,

To feed us good and proper!

 

Chorus And…..so…..it’s……

Munch! Munch!

Crunch! Crunch!

Chew! Chew!

Phew! Phew!

We’ve eaten so much food

We cannot move!

 

Verse 2 Christmas dinner is a winner,

How we love the pud!

And, of course, with brandy sauce,

Boy! It tastes so good!

 

Chorus And…..so…..it’s……

 

(Instrumental, during which everyone pulls crackers and tucks in.)

 

Verse 3 Christmas dinner is a winner,

Helps to build our muscles

That’s just what mums tell us lot

To make us eat our Brussels!

 

Chorus And…..so…..it’s……

 

Silent Night

 

Verse 1 Silent night, holy night.
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

 

Verse 2 Silent night, holy night.
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar.
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

 

Verse 3 Silent night, holy night.
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace.
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth.
