Candlemas, halfway between the Winter Solstice in December and the Spring Equinox in March, is the time when we celebrate the lengthening days and the beginning of Spring’s new growth by taking the light back outside, having carefully guarded it within through the darkest days of winter.

At our school we have celebrated this most cheering of festivals for many years by meeting in the early morning, as the sky begins to brighten, to sing and then to make candles in the earth, followed by a communal breakfast.

Parent and Toddler groups cater for children up to 3½ years and their parents, and often grandparents or other carers too.
We come together for a peaceful, relaxing time in a friendly and supportive environment, where our imaginations can be free and where we enjoy each others company.
We provide simple, unformed, natural play materials that nurture the child’s senses and stimulate creativity. The first hour or so is dedicated to free play and a craft activity for parents. Later, we have ring time and we sit down together for a simple meal.

All groups are run by highly experienced members of our Early Years staff.
To arrange a booking for a free taster session please contact the school office on 01904 654983

A Play in a Week!

Class 7 – who like a challenge – are endeavouring to put on a play in a week:
A Christmas Carol

Well, strictly speaking, two weeks – since they will be spending one week WRITING THE SCRIPT before they spend the second week PRODUCING THE PLAY.

The script will be written (with a little help from Mr. Charles Dickens!) and lines will be learnt by the end of the first week. The following week will be spent rehearsing and staging. The children will be responsible for finding costumes and props and stage managing the performances.
It will, undoubtedly, be a little raw around the edges but will have energy, creativity and enthusiasm and will be a night of drama, song and dance to remember!

Friday 8th & Saturday 9th December 2017 7.00pm At York Steiner School
