Village Voice for Christmas – by Rosie Warrillow

Here we are at this wonderful time of year again and may I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!. During the last week our school has been very busy rehearsing their Nativity plays, and all their hard work paid dividends when they performed in St Andrew’s. The play opened with some rather lost alien beings arriving in A.G due to a broken down space ship. They quickly found some children who were rehearsing for their Christmas plays, and of course the poor things didn’t know what was going on. They quickly got the gist of the proceedings as the children instructed them about the life and birth of Jesus. The Three Kings sang a very upbeat number which proved very popular to the audience of proud mums, dads , grandma etc and had everyone on their feet. The narrators spoke very clearly, there were some very beautiful angels, some wonderful ‘animals’, and of course the shepherds were there too.!  The Alien space ship was repaired and the Aliens went home full of wonder at the story of Jesus.The children performed wonderfully well and the unusual twist really did make this a Nativity to remember. Well done to all the children and the hard working teachers, helpers and carers who made it all possible.
