Nativity - Reception

The Reception children told their story of Busy, Busy, Bethlehem in their Nativity play this week that 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?
The performances were amazing and we know there were many proud parents and grandparents in the audience - well done to all the children and the staff who worked so hard to deliver this magical Christmas story.
