Twist in tale at school na­tiv­ity

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

TAL­ENTED young pupils from Beech Hall School put on a stel­lar per­for­mance in the school’s pro­duc­tion of ‘Whoops-a-Daisy An­gel’, a na­tiv­ity play with a twist.

More than 20 in­fant and pre-school pupils at the school put on a spe­cial Christ­mas show for their proud fam­i­lies.

The event show­cased months of hard work and prepa­ra­tion by pupils and staff in re­hears­ing for the ea­gerly awaited an­nual play.

‘Whoops-a-Daisy An­gel’ is a story by Niki Davies cen­tring on a dis­or­gan­ised but ex­tremely lov­able an­gel who is very dif­fer­ent from the rest.

Reg­u­larly making mis­takes, be­ing for­get­ful and of­ten clumsy, the an­gel is only ever usu­ally trusted to do the very sim­plest of jobs.

Then one day she is asked to carry out the most im­por­tant task of them all – to show Mary and Joseph the way to Beth­le­hem.

Amaan Mo­hammed, seven, Austin O’Con­nor, five, and Sub­haan Mo­hammed, seven, en­joyed don­ning colour­ful cloaks and shiny crowns for their key roles as the three kings.

Lily Heath, six, who took on the star­ring role as the an­gel, wore a white satin dress and a fluffy white an­gel’s halo.

She said: “I loved play­ing Whoops-a-Daisy.

“It was so much fun and dif­fer­ent to the nor­mal na­tiv­ity.”

Head­teacher James Allen said: “We are all very proud of our in­fant and pre-school pupils.

“They have all put so much time and ef­fort into re­hears­ing for this year’s na­tiv­ity play.

“The story is pop­u­lar with par­ents and rel­a­tives and they all really en­joyed watch­ing their lit­tle ones per­form­ing this fun and highly cre­ative al­ter­na­tive Christ­mas tale.”
