I think some of the Chalet Christmas plays would be thought a little slow by
most of our kids - plus we are lacking a few golden-voiced soloists.  Plus
(gasp!) we do let our audiences applaud!  In a church too!  Lucky EBD can't
see it.

Having said that I am running out of ways to ring the changes on the
Christmas play.  We've done Christmas round the world, Christmas in history,
Christmas carols, Christmas customs, and last year we did a version of "A
Christmas Carol", with quite a lot of licence taken with the plot (e.g. five
spirits instead of three!)  I am thinking of having a TV-documentary theme
this year with a Year 6 film crew reporting on events from Bethlehem and
interviewing the protagonists.

Actually I have pinched stuff from GO lit before now.  Once I did a Year 4
pantomime of Cinderella, in which I "borrowed" quite a few rhyming couplets
from the version in Pamela Brown's "Swish of the Curtain".  Don't tell the
copyright lawyers.  :-)

eating like a pig.
