why do a christmas show?
Our Christmas Show is a big event in Stepping Stones. Children and teachers spend a lot of time in December preparing for this show which culminates in a thirty minute performance for parents.
Sometimes parents wonder are three and four year old children capable of performing for a large group of adults, is it stressful for them and is it in any way beneficial to children’s development to engage in such a labour intensive activity? With these questions in mind why do put such effort into this activity?
There are many reasons for conducting such a show. As with everything we do, the best interests of the child is at the heart of this decision. Our curriculum is underpinned by Aistear: The Curriculum Framework and at the heart of this is developing a confident and competent child.
