I love Christmas.

The tree, the lights,

even the shopping.

And this Christmas

was all about new beginnings.

I was starting a new job

at a new school

and having my very first baby.

Well, that's what

Christmas is all about.


The only problem was,

I didn't get on with my family.

Especially my twin brother Roderick.

But I wasn't going to

let that spoil things.



No, I just had a feeling...

- Want to put this on the tree?

- ...this was going to be

the best Christmas ever.

Higher. And back. No...

Ooh! Ohh!

- Donald, are you all right?

- Yeah. I'm just a bit stuck.

- I love Christmas.

- Yeah.

I'm glad that we're here

and I'm glad that we've moved away.


What was the Headmistress like?

She seemed good. Seemed like

she really knew what she was doing.

- Did you meet anybody else there?

- No, she didn't want me to.

No, from what she said,

the staff are fantastic.

Sounds like the perfect school.

Argh! Argh!


Mrs Bevan?

Mr Lambert. Supply teacher.

- Mr Lambert.

- Lambert.

Oh, I'm so pleased to see you

and so grateful.

This is what it's like

when you have a baby.


And our last teacher, Mr Maddens,

he had to go to America,

so we lost him unfortunately,

but you're going to love Mr Poppy.

Mr Whippy Poo!

Enthusiastic, energetic.

- Ready?

- Yes.



Don't throw the eggs.

Everybody, give your eggs to me.


So your class is just down here.

They're great kids.

They're lively, feisty.

What do you think? Yes!

Who put you up to this?

Mr Poppy.

- Mr Poppy!

Good morning, boys and girls.

Good morning, Mr Shakespeare.

Who will win a Song for Christmas?

This Christmas, Coventry's own Oakmoor

School will be shining a light on our city

at the prestigious

A Song for Christmas Contest.

A Song for Christmas is open

to any school soloist or Glee Club

up to the age of 18.

I'm only six.

We tick the box.

Now, it's taking place

at Llawen Castle in Wales.

The competition will be hosted

by singing sensation... Angel Matthews.

I love Angel Matthews.

She's the one that sung...

And competing alongside Oakmoor School

will be St Cuthbert's Choir

and they're from London

and they're led by

a renowned conductor, Roderick Peterson.

- Never heard of him.

- He's a sensational young talent

and, um,

he's going to have a top-notch choir,

so we've really got to come up with it,


The winning song will win...

- 10,000!

- WOW!

And could even become a Christmas No. 1.

Final closing date for entries...

is tomorrow.

Right, OK, my little mystic monkeys,

I want you to go through the school,

tell everyone we are holding

secret Song for Christmas auditions.

And if anybody comes up to you

and asks you,

you need to say...

"What Song for Christmas?"

What Song for Christmas?


Jingle Bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open


Sleigh, hey!

We're going to win

A Song for Christmas

Because it's Christmas

and it's snowing outside

It is cold

But I don't care

Because we're wrapped up,

even warmer inside

- You're going to go through to boot camp!

- Yay!

Christmas is here

- Yeah!

Christmas is here

- A-ha.

Christmas is the time to cheer

- What is it?

Christmas is here

- It's here?

Yeah, Christmas is here

- Really?

Christmas is a time to cheer

Anything else?

Is that it? Are you all out?

Are you spent?



I had a little turtle

His name was Tiny Tim

I put him in the bathtub

to see if he could swim

We love Christmas

We love C-C-C-Christmas.

P-P-Presents, p-p-pudding
