Christmas jumpers were donned and carols sung as teachers got into the festive spirit.
Pupils and parents were welcomed to Dryclough Infants School by a choir of teachers in brightly coloured woolly jumpers and hats.
Staff sang a selection of traditional carols as well as old favourites such as Jingle Bells and Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer.
A trio of musicians added to the occasion; Rachel Haley on the piano, Gemma Nichol played the oboe and Helen Pickersgill played the flute.
Children and parents joined in with the festivities and hot chocolate and biscuits were shared with all who came to hear the singing.
Delighted parents said it was lovely to see the school go to the extra effort.
Comments included: “Lovely to see all the staff so welcoming and enjoying themselves,” and, “It was brilliant, I feel really Christmassy now.”
Acting head teachers Monica Best and Julie Dickinson, said: “Our staff are very keen to warmly welcome the children and parents into school at this very special time of year, and would like to say Happy Christmas and a big thank you to all our parents and families for their help and support over the past year.”
The school is looking for parents, friends and family members to create a new community choir with the staff.
If you enjoy singing and would like to join in the fun, please contact Rachel Haley at the school or speak to any member of staff.
Staff will be performing again on Thursday, December 18 December from 8.30am-9.00am.
