Bourne Abbey CE Primary Academy's ethos
As a Church School we not only encourage our pupils to strive for excellence in the core subjects, but to broaden their education, to embrace and develop the concepts of faith and spirituality, of hope and charity and to enable them to make more informed decisions later in life as broad-minded and knowledgeable British and world citizens.
A Miracle in town - Reception pupils' performance
The Reception children performed the enchanting Nativity titled ‘A Miracle in Town.’
Every child took to the stage to retell the story of when baby Jesus was born under a sparkling star in a peaceful stable.
The children lit the stage with their amazing acting, super singing and dazzling dancing.
The finale was the children beautifully singing ‘Away in a Manger,’ which brought a tear to many of the adults’ eyes.
A spectacular show enjoyed by everyone and reminded us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

Key Stage 2's Magical Christmas Jigsaw
Stars, angels, shepherds and a little Christmas magic all joined together at Bourne Abbey C of E Primary Academy’s Key Stage 2 Christmas nativity at Bourne Abbey Church on Monday 12th December.
With a cast and choir from Year 3 to Year 6 the Christmas service was a little different this year as it was a play title ‘The Magical Christmas Jigsaw’ and it took our congregation on a journey of discovery about the Nativity through a Christmas jigsaw delivered by an angel in disguise and filled with traditional Christmas carols.
The children all did exceptionally well learning their lines and rehearsing in church just once before the real service.
All the children blossomed as their confidence grew, producing a wonderful service for all of our school family and friends.
There were several exceptional moments which ensured some traditional Christmas ‘tissue’ moments for us all…the readings, the acting, the choir and our fabulous trio who sang the first verse of Once in Royal David’s City - it was simply beautiful.
We would like to thank all parents, carers and friends who attended the service to celebrate Christmas with us and who helped the children to rehearse and prepare for the occasion. We are sure that you all feel just as proud as us.
