Children from schools and nurseries across Banburyshire have been getting ready for Christmas by retelling the story of the birth of Jesus.
Nativity plays have been performed in front of teachers and parents all this week, with many children enjoying the chance to dress up and sing popular carols. Key Stage One pupils at Queensway Primary School held two performances of their play It’s a Baby on Tuesday.
Head teacher Sarah Jakeman said: “It’s gone really well and the children have shown great enthusiasm with their songs and lines.
“We have some budding actors and actresses!”
St Joseph’s RC School in Fiennes Road put on two nativity performances, one on Tuesday and one yesterday (Wednesday). Mary-Claire Hardie, deputy head teacher, said: “The children have really enjoyed the singing and were all really looking forward to showing their family and friends the true meaning of Christmas.”
Middleton Cheney Primary School held its nativity play for parents yesterday (Wednesday).
Windmill Nurseries also held a nativity production, set in a barn with hay and bales of straw.
