The Christmas Star

This half-term Reception’s topic has been ‘Up Above and Down Below’.  We have read lots of stories on this theme, and our learning inspired us to create a show that included some of the characters we have encountered, such as teddies and aliens. We spent a lot of time practising our singing and acting, and talking about how we could make our performance special for the audience.  On Wednesday 7th December, we performed our Nativity production “The Christmas Star”.

Some children were decorating the tree for Christmas, but where is the star for the top of the tree?

They asked some fireworks if they had seen the Christmas Star, but the fireworks hadn’t.

The aliens had not seen the Christmas Star either.

Finally, they asked some teddy bears who were having a picnic on the moon if they had seen the Christmas Star. The teddy bears had not seen the Christmas Star.

The children returned to their decorations box and inside they found a Nativity scene. A star led the way to the newborn baby Jesus.

Finally the children had found the star for the top of the Christmas tree!

We are so proud of the final performance. Thank you to everyone who came along to support us.
