The annual Deanery Schools’ Celebration took place last week at Gedney Victory Hall and was a huge success.
Some 15 primary schools in the Elloe East Deanery were involved in the celebrations, which were organised by a small comittee funded by Mary Bass Charity and the churches in the Deanery.
Year 4 pupils explored the story of Daniel in the lion’s den through drama, music, dance and craft.
The chilren made a storybook of Daniel, danced through the movements of the lions and Daniel in the den, learnt how to create the story through song and samba intruments and re-enacted the story in a drama.
The activities were delivered by Spalding theatrical group, ACT II and dance instructor and choreographer Katrina Brackenbury.
Visitors to the half day celebrations included Archdeacon Justine and the rural Dean, Reverend Rosamund Seal, as well as a number of clergy and church members from the Deanery.
Kristina Reitan said: “Everyone agreed that the final presentations from the pupils were very impressive.
“The children had learnt the importance of trusting in God, through Daniel’s story.
“Every child was given a bright orange T-shirt, decorated with a picture of Daniel, as a memento of the day.”
