Students from Theddlethorpe Academy have been getting into the Christmas spirit after they recently performed two festive shows for a packed room of families and friends.

Pupils from Years 1 and 2 performed their interpretation of the traditional nativity, entitled ‘Christmas Surprise,’ which was narrated by a donkey using rhyme throughout.

This was followed by Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 who all worked together to produce a humorous look at Christmas festivities, entitled ‘Nativity Nightmares.’

The play was a representation of what the planning of a Christmas Nativity is really like at school, where tired and harassed teachers are trying to pull together the end of term nativity.

It involved children taking on the roles of teachers, as well as traditional nativity characters.

A few disasters strike, but in the tradition of show-business, everything is ‘alright on the night’.
