On the Sixteenth Day.....

It was her nativity this afternoon, so I got to the church early to get a good seat seeing as she was Mary. I was in the second pew, as the front was reserved for the kids. I had the perfect view. Year 5 wrote the play themselves, it was brilliant. Throughout the nativity they sing carols and recite poems.

First song was Celebration and she's putting all her effort into it, this is one of their favourites.

Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem. The poem these four told was The First Christmas by Elizabeth Fleming:

A star was His night-light
His quilt was the sky,
And soft sang His mother
In case he should cry;
And all the brown cattle
Came close to His bed
To see the small Baby
Asleep in their shed.

His carols were praises
Of love and goodwill,
That rose in the midnight
So clear and so still,
To herald the earliest
Christmas we know,
When Jesus was little,
A long time ago.

She's putting all her effort into the last song of the nativity. It was a lovely play, they all did really well and they should be very proud of themselves.
