Don't say the C word, you can sing it.
As you are aware the children get more and more excited over Christmas. With all the stuff hitting the shops so much earlier now I decided to ban the C word, and indeed the S word until December. We are practising for a school Christmas concert at the moment. Most days we spend some time in the assembly hall as a school singing. One of the songs includes the words.
" Thank you for watching our Christmas
Thank you for watching our Christmas
Thank you for watching our Christmas show"
Well thats what we were supposed to sing but as I had banned the C word mine were singing
'Thank you for watching our hmmm show'
So today at practice I interjected about being allowed to sing the words Christmas. At this point there was a great kaffuffle among the P2s, they wanted to be able to sing it too! They also had been banned from saying the C word.
Neither myself, P3, nor the P2 teacher had thought for one minute it would be taken that seriously.
