YOUNGSTERS from schools and nurseries across Bromsgrove, Rubery and South West Birmingham have been putting on their annual Christmas nativities.

► LITTLE stars from Marlbrook Pre-School put on a special Christmas show for around 50 parents and grandparents on Monday (December 16).

Youngsters from years two, three and four awed the audience with their acting skills when they performed the traditional nativity they had spent months rehearsing for.

The talented youngsters also performed a special seasonal dance to the song Warm This Winter by Gabriella Cilmi.

Teachers, pupils and audience members then gathered to enjoy a cup of tea, a mince pie and a chat.

Deputy manager Sharon Price said: "It went really well - parents and grandparents were so impressed and they all really enjoyed it."

► THERE was a twist on the traditional nativity at Alphabets at Hollymoor in Northfield put on Tuesday (December 17).

The special performance included Bob the Builder and Wendy who made an appearance to help Mary and Joseph out by fixing their broken stable and crib.

Families packed out the building to see their children, between the ages of one and four, have their turn in the spotlight.

After the show, parents and grandparents gathered to enjoy a drink and a mince pie as well as give praise Alphabets staff for their work with the children.

Tracy Nicholls, deputy manager, said: “The children had a really good time and did really well.”

►YEAR one and two children at St Andrew's First School in Barnt Green staged an alternative version of the nativity.

Born in a Barn was told from the animals' point of view.

Parents were praised for their support of the production by creating some fantastic costumes for the show.

Mrs Geddes, one of the school's year two teachers, said the show was well-supported by parents who helped with the creation of some wonderful animal costumes

"The children performed beautifully with clear voices and spectacular singing," she added.

► A CROWD of more than 50 people watched the traditional nativity performed by youngsters from Pippins Day Nursery at their base in Hanbury Village Hall.

The three- and four-year-olds were confident as they sang loudly, filling the room with new and old Christmas songs.

The nursery’s Joanne Beecham said: “The children were cheered on to sing songs from the play again as they posed and smiled for photos.

“The play was performed to a standard you would expect from much older children and the audience were thrilled at the children’s behaviour and professionalism.”

The festive fun continued last Friday (December 13) when a Christmas Fayre was held to boost nursery funds.

Youngsters got to see Santa at the event.

► YOUNGSTERS from Fairfield First School delighted their audience when they took to the stage with their Christmas production.

The whole school was involved in the Children of the World show and the roles ranged from acting to singing and performing music.

Headteacher Scott Smith said it was a fantastic way to begin the school’s Christmas festivities.

“The children and staff all worked extremely hard to produce a wonderful, high quality production.

“They have made us all very proud.”
