YOUNGSTERS at a Worcester primary school brought the Christmas story to life by performing their nativity play.

Packed audiences watched on at Red Hill CE Primary School as nursery, reception and Year 1 pupils showed off their acting, narrating and singing talents during three entertaining performances this month.

This year’s nativity, called Away in a Manger, was based on a mule, called Maurice, who stopped a number of different animals from moving into his manger until baby Jesus came along. The mule’s stable was then visited by angels, shepherds and wise men.
