Our nursery Nativity plays were a huge success again this year.
We were very excited to return to The Postmill Centre to give our nativity that professional touch again this year. This also allowed us to invite even more visitors to experience our wonderful performances.
We welcomed a record number of parents, carers, grandparents, governors and friends of the nursery who all enjoyed a musical and acting extravaganza!
The children had been practicing their storytelling and learning the songs, signs and movements as part of our Expressive Arts 'Music' curriculum through which children learn about singing and music as well as rhythm, steady beat and pitch.
Our nursery children all had their own part and their own special costume and they really enjoyed performing a range of traditional and modern songs to tell the story of Jesus’s birth. Songs included old favourites like 'Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star' and 'Away in a Manger’ as well as new songs such as 'Have You Any Room.’ This year we even had some brilliant solo performances...wow!
The children told the story brilliantly…we were extremely proud of them and at the end of our performance we celebrated by dancing all the way around the audience, to our new favourite song! To end we sang together with the all the grown ups 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' to wish all our families a very Merry Christmas.
At the end of the performance Stephanie and Moira drew the raffle which this year has made a staggering £245. We thank you for all the generous contributions of prizes from parents, staff and local companies.
Very well done to all our nursery children and many thanks to all our families, friends and governors who supported this event.
We hope you enjoy looking at a small selection of our photos…look out in the new year for the rest of the photos and also some audio snippets of the performance.
Merry Christmas everyone...we hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
