Christmas tree festival and animal themed nativity at Bury St Edmunds school
Crowds descended on a Bury St Edmunds school to see Christmas trees decorated in the theme of carols at a festive festival.
Scores flocked to Guildhall Feoffment Primary, in Bridewell Lane, for their Christmas Tree Festival, which featured 12 trees decorated by pupils.
The school’s Owl Class (Year 1) gained the most votes for the best tree and visitors won a prize if they were able to guess the carol for each tree.
There was also a raffle, tombola, lucky dip, craft stalls, festive themed games and Father Christmas who gave out presents. An art competition had winners and runners up from each year.
It was organised by the parent teacher association ‘Friends of Feoffment’ and funds raised will benefit the school. The school thanked local businesses who donated raffle prizes.
Meanwhile, about 120 children in Years 1 and 2 have been performing ‘Born in a Barn’, which tells the nativity story from the perspective of the animals. It was organised by joint Key Stage 1 leaders Helen Coleman and Rebecca Cosgrove.
A spokesman said: “Thank you to all the parents who have provided their children with such great costumes and helped them learn their lines and lyrics.”
