The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

An original re-telling of the Nativity Story giving the children the opportunity to play classroom percussion instruments as well. In the story the 'teachers' ask the children which instruments would best paint a musical picture of the characters in the story. As the instruments are selected and played the characters take centre stage and the story unfolds. The children, teachers and parents from Sacred Heart School in Ware and St Joseph's in Hertford really loved the performances.

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

A delightful Nativity Play with a modern day twist. An enlightened Parish Priest determined to make parishioners focus on the real meaning of Christmas hands each family a box of Christmas Crackers as they leave Midnight Mass. These are the 'Nativity Crackers' and each riddle and gift reveals something about the Christmas Story. As the crackers are pulled and the message dawns on the family, they freeze frame and we are transported back in time to the events of the first Christmas Story. The children, staff and parents of two Hertfordshire schools loved this play. The songs in a variety of styles offer much scope for actions, dance and solos and the script can be adapted to suit your needs.

The Magic Nativitree

The Magic Nativitree

This is a Magical Christmas Nativity play in more ways than one. The story starts when the teacher announces that the local priest has asked Years 1&2 to provide a tree for the Christmas Tree Festival in his church but the tree has to tell the story of the nativity. As the children are dispatched to the hall to create their decorations magical things happen when the children put their decoration on the tree. The decorations come alive, sprinkle magic glitter on the children and the song and dance begins. Cohesion is added to the play in the form of the 'Cutting and Sticking Song' which the children loved and the songs are cheerful and varied ranging from the 'Country and Western' style of the 'Animals Song and Dance' to the 'Rock and Roll' genre of the 'Shepherd's Song and Dance.' As the final song says......'The Magic Nativitree.........helps us see.........what Christmas means for you and me.'
