The children from EYFS and KS1 have had an extremely busy week of Nativity performances. The children from Broadclyst and Westclyst have had a brilliant time performing their Nativity, ‘Stable by Starlight’ with seven shows in total between them.
After lots of hard work learning lines, dances and singing songs the children have put on some excellent performances. The Narrators and leading Stars eloquently took their audiences on a journey from the hustle and bustle of Bethlehem to the quite humble stable. Alongside this the numerous speaking roles, heart-warming solos and festive choreographies showcased the children’s many talents all the way through from Nursery to Year 2. It was clear how much time and effort they had put in to learning an impressive number of lines and lyrics. The songs were a mix of old and new, each finished off with an enthusiastic performance of ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’, from both children and audience alike.
Oliver summed up the performance, “'It was my favourite thing to do and I liked the costumes a lot!”. Mason liked our modern addition to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree “I really loved the rack band!” and Archie said he “really liked it because my Mummy was so proud of me”. Tommy added “I really liked the Nativity. Learning some of the lines was tricky but it was so fun when we got to do the show. My favourite part was when the shepherds were counting their sheep, it was so funny”. Erin said “The angel and star dances were so Christmassy and magical” and hopefully all our audiences left feeling in the Christmas Spirit!
