Carol Service 2015




From John Rigarlsford (School Governor):


Tansley School’s Carol Service, held last week in Holy Trinity Church, had a wonderful atmosphere, with every seat taken and people standing at the back.


The evening started with everyone singing O Come All Ye Faithful. This was followed by Oaks Class performing a play about the Little Tree. The very young children were dressed as trees, families coming to choose and chop down their Christmas Trees, robins, furry animals and stars. Despite some of these children only being at school for less than a term, they all played their parts very well. Six-year old Rowan Neville was the narrator and she spoke very clearly and could be heard throughout the church.


The school choir followed and delighted the audience by singing several Christmas songs. Elm Class then played several songs on ocarinas and recorders under the leadership of Mrs Baker. Considering that many of the children had been learning these instruments for only a few weeks they were very accomplished and harmonised well with each other.The oldest children (Sycamore Class) then took it in turns to read the Christmas Story. They all read very well and were clearly heard.At various points traditional Christmas carols were sung by everyone. Richard spoke about God’s love, involving the children holding up letters.


Our thanks go to the Head, Tracey Holmes, the staff and the children for making it a very memorable evening and a wonderful start to the festive season.

Harvest Festival 2015

This year, for our Harvest Festival at Holy Trinity Church, collected donations for Unicef for the Syrian refugee appeal and raised £127.13. 


The world has been shocked by the heart-breaking images of children’s bodies washing up on the shores of Europe and we have been discussing the problems in school and how Unicef is working around the clock to make sure that Syrian children and refugees are provided with life-saving supplies such as clean water, medicine and psychosocial support. 


Well done to all the children. Oak class sang their Harvest songs beautifully and Elm and Sycamore classes shared their play and songs of 'Harvest Hope' with confidence. 



175 years Tansley Holy Trinity Church

175 years Tansley Holy Trinity Church 1

Thursday 24th September 2015

Last night we went to the church. We sang some songs there to celebrate 175 years of Holy Trinity Church. The songs were called 'I'm OK', 'Together' and 'Only One World'. All the parents of Tansley Primary School were there. At the end there was a big feast on a table and we all enjoyed it.
