Pre-Prep Nativity wows the audience

Pre-Prep nativity cast

Christmas isn't Christmas without the wonderful performance of the Nativity by our pre-prep children. And this year was no exception with our incredible children delivering two fantastic performances on 5th and 6th December to delight parents, grandparents, staff and pupils from across St Lawrence College. There was laughter, tears, a few droopy halos and lost tails and a lot of special memories as the children told the story of the birth of Jesus through some of their favourite Christmas songs and carols.

The key roles in our Nativity were acted by our talented Year 2 class who also shared with Head Mrs Rowe what taking part in the Nativity means to them. Here's what some of them said:

Bea – I like it because my mum and dad are coming

Pippa – The Donkey Café is a very funny idea

Ava – I like speaking on the stage

Jacob – I like the Little Donkey Song.

Niamh – Saying EEE ORR is funny

Valentina – I really like the Little Donkey song and my costume keeps me warm and I really like it that Auntie Kirsty and Grandma can come and watch.

Atski – I like the rhythm in calypso carol

Brodie – I love singing 'Kings go marching from the East'

Stanley – I like singing 'Go tell it on the Mountain' because I am a sheep and sheep like mountains

Bailey – I like being one of the sheep and I really like the Shepherd Niamh as she protects us from wolves and from King Herod

Junior and Elijah both said – My favourite is 'Go tell in on the mountain'

Sonny – I like my costume and I like Elijah's too

Elliot – I love everything, singing, dancing, the lovely voices and everyone for coming – thank you.

Back in March, before the school went into lockdown, SLC pupils participated in an exciting week of Science and Technology. From an inspiring talk led by BBC TV/Radio Presenter and science journalist, Greg Foot, to homemade hover crafts and discussions about diversity, pupils had to work collaboratively to design detailed research projects to showcase at the fair. Meanwhile, the Junior School pupils got to work creating their very own futuristic designs to showcase in assembly.
