Twist in tale at school nativity
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.”
