Marist Christmas Nativities

Marist Christmas Nativities

A particular highlight of the Advent season, our Early Years and KS1 Nativities were a heart-warming joy to behold. 

On Thursday 6 December, Key Stage 1 pupils performed their nativity ‘The Inn Crowd’ to their families. Whilst the animals in the stable were grumpy, the crowd in the inn were very merry. The angels shone brightly, dazzling the hardworking shepherds. Meanwhile, the bleating sheep got rather hot sitting by the campfire. Mary and Joseph settled comfortably in the stable welcoming their Holy baby into the world. The three Kings sang beautifully to baby Jesus, having given him wondrous gifts. Well done girls for a wonderful performance. Your acting and singing were fantastic!

 

 

 

 

 

The following week, on Tuesday 11 December, it was the turn of our youngest pupils to perform their nativity ‘The Bossy King’. The Bossy King was not happy that there was a King greater than him and he set out to find this King. When he was led to a poor stable and found a baby lying in a manger, he quickly realised how special this baby was and gave his crown as a gift. At that moment, he decided never to be bossy again. 

All of the girls in Early Years had a part to play and they all did exceptionally well learning their lines and songs and then performing in front of the Ascot Day Centre, Prep pupils and finally their parents and other family members. For some children, this was their first experience of being on a stage and performing to an audience. Yet again, they surpassed all our expectations and we are very proud of them all.
