Children Rehearse for this year’s Nativity

Children from Holy Trinity International School’s Reception class to Year 2, are busy practising for this year’s nativity entitled ‘Shepherd Little’. The nativity is about Bethlehem's smallest resident, Shepherd Little, who has a little trouble with telling the truth. So, when she makes a claim that she's seen a person with wings who has an amazing story to tell, who on earth's going to believe her? Year 2 teacher Mrs Michelle Shaw said: “The production is a modern take on the traditional Christmas Nativity and will involve over thirty children singing, acting and reading aloud. “For the last few weeks we’ve been practising the songs and dances in our usual PE lessons, and utilising their creative skills to help make stage props, as well as practising their lines which has helped with their reading in general as they’ve had to learn their parts and words to the songs.” The nativity will be performed to parents, family and the rest of prep school on Thursday 13th December at 9:15am. <Ends> Image details L to R: Back Row – Little Shepherd’s Mum, Katherine Farnsworth (7yrs), Angel Gabriel, Matilda Duerdan (7yrs) and Shiny Star, Carly Britten (6yrs).
