Pre-Prep dazzles audience with poignant Nativity play
Every year our nativity play setting is discussed and chosen by our Year 2 pupils. This year they have requested that the play centres around the poem of the owl and the pussy cat, friendship and saving our planet. The nativity play is called Hand in Hand and refers both to the Owl and Pussy Cat dancing hand in hand and to us all being hand in hand as we try to solve the problems facing the world.
The owl and pussy cat continue their adventures in the pea green boat and are shocked to see what is happening in the world. They ask the angels to help them sort it out. Angry shepherds represent the unrest between nations and the kings represent our greedy throwaway society. The angels retell the nativity story and persuade the shepherds and kings to visit the stable in Bethlehem in the hope that love and peace will unite the world.
This simplistic view of the world's problems is what our Year 2 girls want to present to their parents to make sure they realise that we need to do all we can to preserve the world for the next generation. Hand in hand at Christmas we should all be thinking about friendship, saving our world and of course having a very happy Christmas.
