News from Amberley School

End of term at Amberley Primary School was celebrated with the much anticipated school Christmas production. The school hall was packed with parents, relatives, friends and villagers who had heard rumours of Morris Dancing sheep being introduced this year. There was standing room only in the hall and the audience were not disappointed as the pupils danced, sang and acted their hearts out.

Another innovation was a “Strictly” Jury which marked all of the acts and included Caesar (boo!) who brilliantly acted the baddy giving low scores to all and the Donkey who was much more appreciative. There were a number of 10s awarded by the sensible jurors and even a couple of Len Goodman like 7s!

Mary and Joseph, Angels, Shepherds, Inn keepers and Wise men all danced and sang whilst two of the older pupils acted the parts of Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman. Clearly a tremendous amount of work had been invested in preparation for the production from dedicated staff, loving parents and of course the children

Everyone clearly thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the children were brilliant. A great example of how a small rural school is so important to the local community.
