Magna Carta Primary Academy reception children perform virtual Nativity for parents
The families of reception-age children will be the first to experience a virtual Nativity performed by their little ones.
Pupils at Stansted's Magna Carta Primary Academy, along with other schools in the area, have embraced modern technology to recount the story of the birth of Jesus.
Watching your child's first Nativity is a special moment, and while parents cannot see it first hand this year because of Covid-19, they are being sent a specially recorded performance instead.
"Restrictions mean schools cannot welcome parents into school to watch children sing in the annual performance this festive season," said a spokesperson for the St John's Road school.
"Instead, pupils in reception are recording their stage debut to send home to their families safely. They will dress in their costumes and film their performance outside, where singing is allowed."
Melissa Roberts, reception teacher, added: “We're so pleased to have come up with an alternative solution so the children and families don't miss out on their very first school Nativity."
