BRIDPORT: Burton Bradstock children bring Christmas alive

CHILDREN at Burton Bradstock Primary School brought true Christmas spirit to the village with a number of events last month.

Pupils began the seasonal celebrations by taking part in the school’s annual Christingle service at St Mary’s Church.

Young people, parents and carers, as well as a number of villagers, were treated to a service of readings and hymns.

The evening was rounded off with the lighting of the special Christingle candles just as the sun was setting. 

The pupils had made their candles beforehand with members of the church, who hosted a party for them afterwards, complete with party food and traditional games.

The following week the school put on three performances of The Magical Chirstmas Jigsaw, a play which switches from modern times back 2,000 years to the Nativity scene.

The story revolves around the building of the magical jigsaw, and with each piece placed another part of the Christmas story unfold.

 All the children at the school were involved in the play in some way.

Sue Dampney, vice chairman of Burton Bradstock School governors, said: “From market place traders, Roman guards, shepherds, hens and mice everyone acted and sung their hearts out. 

“Three rounds of applause followed the performance.

“Well done to the children and staff at school for putting on such a wonderful show.”

The Christmas festivities were rounded off with a Christmas party before a special trip to Freshwater Beach Holiday Park to see this year’s pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk.
