16th December 2021 — Pupils at King’s House School in Richmond, Surrey, have been enjoying many Christmas festivities this year, after many were held virtually in 2020 due to Covid-19.

In the Nursery, families were able to enjoy a wonderful Nativity performance by the Butterfly Class! The children have worked very hard this half term learning the songs and everyone was very impressed with them. There was also a very special visit in the Nursery from Father Christmas, which the children were enthralled by. They were able to tell Father Christmas what they would like for Christmas, and what they will be leaving him and his reindeer on Christmas Eve. 'Singing Hands' also came to the Nursery, where they taught the children Makaton to some Christmas songs. Makaton is a language programme that uses signs together with speech and symbols, to enable people to communicate.

The Reception and Year 1 Nativities were a highlight in the Junior Department (Reception to Year 3), and it was wonderful to be able to welcome parents to watch these once again. Year 2 and 3 put on a fabulous Christmas Concert, with a debut performance from the Junior Ensemble. Both the Junior and Senior Departments (Year 4 to 8) enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch during the last week of term.

King’s House was delighted to be able to perform the Senior Department Carol Service in St Mary Magdalene Church in Richmond on Wednesday 15 December. There were wonderful performances by the Adult Choir, King’s House Singers, Chamber Choir and Year 4 Choir that put everyone in the festive spirit.

Pupils and staff also loved wearing their Christmas jumpers on the last day of term in aid of the charity Skylarks, who support children with disabilities and additional needs.
