Once again it is the time of year where young children don tea towels and tinsel to make their stage debuts.

And West Leigh Infant School, in Westfield Drive, Backwell, was no exception when it came to putting on a nativity show this year.

Pupils spent weeks perfecting their roles and learning the songs, and it all came together last week.

Performances took place in the school hall, where parents were able to watch the key stage one pupils tell the biblical story of Jesus’ birth.

Children dressed up as the obligatory angels, kings and shepherds, while a number of them also dressed up as sheep and a donkey.

The parent and teacher association arranged for the shows to be filmed so families can buy a DVD to keep as a memento.

Schoolchildren from West Leigh will have another chance to perform, when they sing in a carol service for parents on Friday.
