An exciting wait for Year 2

We have told the children this morning that we may find ourselves over the next week in a real 'Nativity the film' type scenario....


It all started when Mrs Wales entered our Year 2 Nutcracker Performance in to a national Virgin Media competition...and we have received an email to say that we have made it to the short lists being finalists in the competition guaranteeing us a prize of £100....


Below is further information from the press release that went out today sharing what the winning school will receive as a prize and I am sure you will know that all of Year 2 are keeping their fingers crossed to see if their play has been selected to be the winner!


We are VERY excited and will share the news when we know!


The winning play will be professionally filmed and made available to four million Virgin TV customers in the days leading up to Christmas.


As part of the prize, the winners will work with TV entertainer, Stephen Mulhern, who play the role of narrator for a one-off performance.


The winning school will also receive £5,000, a runner up gets £1,000 and 22 schools will be awarded £100 for reaching the final stage of the competition.


David Bouchier of Virgin Media, said: “A huge congratulations to RAF Benson Community Primary School for reaching the final stage of our magical Christmas Stars competition. Their production has the perfect ingredients for a feel-good festive play which could be enjoyed by millions of Virgin TV customers this Christmas. We’ve now got the tough task of choosing a winner from our fantastic finalists – good luck to RAF Benson Community Primary School.
