Child led nativity

This year we are writing the annual St Nicolas Earley nativity play with the youngest kids (aged 4 to 10); letting them make decisions about how the play should be presented and what should be said. 

I've been the Christmas story into five sections:
1. Angels
2. Jesus is both in Bethlehem
3. Shepherds visit
4. A star leads way
5. wise men come from afar

Over the next five weeks we'll explore the nativity story together, getting into what happened and why and thinking a bit about how we could explain that to people.

I am super excited about the whole experience and if it goes half as well as our first season today then it will be something not to miss on Christmas Eve.
