Children from St Michael’s primary school, part of Salisbury Plain Academies, have been working hard preparing for their Christmas nativity.
The pupils from classes 1 and 2 are putting on their production of Born in a Barn and have been busy learning songs, complete with actions, and with the support of their parents have been learning their lines.
This year is extra special as the children will be performing in the village church.
“All the teachers and teaching assistants are very proud of the children’s efforts, especially as for many of them it is the first time they have been on the stage,” said class 2 teacher, Lucy Lafferty. “The children are at the heart of this production and have done a fantastic job learning their lines and the songs for the play.”
‘As always this was a whole team effort from our school, and our thanks go out to the children, the parents, our support staff and the Church for working together to ensure that Born in a Barn is going to be a huge success,” said class 1 teacher, Cheryl Palmer.
The children taking part all agree the play is amazing.
Year 2 pupil Francesca said: “It is so much fun and my costume is my favourite thing.”
Her fellow pupil, George who is in year 1 said: “I really like the songs, my favourite is Born in a barn.”
