A pair of magical nativity plays helped our Junior School children and their families celebrate Christmas during a fortnight of festive fun.
Every child in the infants – from the nursery through to year two – played a part in the plays, which were both performed to halls full of families, friends, staff and governors, as well as mayor of Stockport councillor Chris Murphy.
In Whoops-a-Daisy Angel, the boys and girls from our nursery and reception classes told the story of a disorganised but lovable angel who is chosen to show the way to Bethlehem.
A traditional nativity story, the play featured angels, snowflakes, shepherds, three wise men and Mary and Joseph in their colourful costumes, backed by catchy songs and even some of our mini musicians on percussion!
The Stars Come Out for Christmas
The year one and two nativity – The Stars Come Out for Christmas – was set in “Holly-wood” in “Tinsel-town” and was a musical reminder of everybody’s favourite parts of the holidays.
In the play, the children ran through the nominees for the prestigious outstanding contribution to Christmas award – Santa, cards, trees, dinner and snow – before a late entry telling the wondrous story of a baby being born in a stable scooped the prize!
There have been lots of other opportunities for our Junior School pupils to celebrate Christmas during the last two weeks of term too, with pantomimes, parties, and, in the nursery, a day of decoration making with parents helping to bring 2013 to a close.
Wednesday evening’s Junior School carol service at St George’s church will round off the calendar year ahead of the last day of term on Thursday and a well-deserved break.
