Slideshow: Little angels shine at their nativity plays

All the excitement of the festive season was clear at Morley schools last week as children took part in their nativity performances.

From Mary and Joseph, pretty angels and kings to donkeys shepherds and wise men, children took to the stage to tell the story of Jesus’ birth in front of their proud parents and families.

Key Stage One children at Seven Hills Primary School put on a nativity called Born in a Barn, which was a fun-filled production jam-packed with lots of catchy songs.

The story told how cows, sheep, pigs, a cat and a cockerel all learn about their special guest from the donkey who brought him and everyone else who followed. As more and more visitors arrived to greet the new King, the animals slowly realised what a privilege it was to share their home with such an important baby.

The Foundation Stage children at Seven Hills performed their Noisy Nativity for family and friends with reception children dressing up, accompanied by percussion instruments, while nursery children shared their angelic voices in the choir.

Asquith Primary School’s Key Stage One pupils welcomed Mary, Joseph, shepherds and wise men to the stage to perform their nativity while Thorpe Primary School wowed their audience with a star-studded performance and St Francis Primary School’s years one and two told their story, dressed in impressive costumes.
