Special Event - KS1 Nativity 'Busy, Busy Bethlehem'

13 December 2018

The whole school, parents and Governors were given a special treat to see KS1 Perform their Nativity Play - Busy, Busy Bethlehem. It tells the Christmas story from a new perspective – that of a busy Bethlehem soldier.

Bethlehem is busy, busy, busy with preparations for the day of the approaching census. Watching the excitement and directing the crowds is a little soldier sent to Bethlehem by Caesar Augustus. He loves to organise everybody and thinks that nothing could be more important than being in charge.

So when Mary and Joseph arrive late, the little soldier is initially very cross, but something changes and he can't understand why. He forgets all about organising - could it be because a very special baby is about to be born?

We could really tell that the children were keen to organise the crowds with their powerful singing and stage presence. The children spoke so clearly and confidently. Being so animated, you could tell that the children enjoyed performing as much as the audience did watching.

Thank you KS1 and staff for such a wonderful production.
