Christmas Surprise


Christmas Surprise
Dear friends,

I īve asked you some time ago the same question but maybe it was still too early for the topic.
I need your help and ideas.

This year we īre starting a new event at our school: Christmas Surprise,
it īs done by the English teachers for the whole school.
My friend is preparing a play for ypunger students (7-9), and I īm going to prepare something for kids aged 10-13. I was thinking about some play - then I īd prepare it with a group of students to stage for the rest of school kids. But maybe you have got some idea of other nice things that are related with Christmas but would not be as obvious as a play.
It can take from 1 hour to even more if we get something lasting so long prepared.
I īd like it to be fun, and not religious.

counting on you as always

How about dramatizing a song? While a group of students, who have got great vocals, are singing at the side of the stage, the other group is dressing up and showing what they are singing (BTW they could also pull out mini-posters cut-out in the form of speech bubbles with exclamations/interjections like "Wow!", "Oops!", etc. to make the performance more fun:)

Sounds good Sophia,
but what kind of song have you got in mind? Any song/carrol that would work?
BTW I found on this site some short funny Xmas scripts that could be implemented and I feel like doing a little fun theatre out there:)
I like Xmas so much and can īt wait to have my mind clear about the show and get on working.

hugs friend,
