The sprout won!
While the children wore their Christmas jumpers, Mrs Vincent wore her sprout costume with pride.
These efforts raised over £380 for Save the Children.
The school had three different festive productions on the last day of term as part of their actions as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, taking practical steps to support global goals.
Year 1’s production was of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and was their first live performance at RAB.
Lights...Camel...Action by Year 2 was fully of catchy tunes and some great dance moves.
And the children in Reception’s first nativity play was A Miracle in Town.

Some Year 6 children delivered Thank You hampers to Highfields Nursing Home and Stanley Wilson Lodge.
Headteacher Mrs Vincent said: “We’ve had a lot of fun with our Christmas celebrations but we also wanted to think of others.
"This was a way for our children to show their gratitude and appreciated for the carers in our community and all the hard work they do for the most vulnerable in our community."
