Nativity play, South Shields

Nativity Play

I was really pleased to sit and watch the Year 2 (aged 7) pupils at my local school in South Shields as they performed a very traditional Nativity play, without any concessions to the modern PC concepts surrounding religious beliefs.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable half an hour and they tried really hard to make sure that all of the parents at the back could hear. The school hall was packed (and we just the parents of the girls, the boys’ parents would see the play the next day), and the singing and music were exceptional, if not quite X Factor!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 55mm lens, 1/60 second, f4.5, iso 200, flash fired.

  1. Adorable! You can see some children on stage look frightened, either their part calls for them to act afraid, in which case they should be nominated for Oscars, or it’s a classic case of stagefright! I can remember some of my classmates being paralyzed on stage during school productions, including one where the main character went mute on the day of our performance and our teacher had to speak all of his lines for him. Thanks for bringing back those memories. 🙂
