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!
