The end of the winter term at schools saw the return of the Christmas concert as boys and girls took to the stage.

School halls across North Somerset were packed with proud parents, grandparents and friends watching on as youthful enthusiasm and star quality was clearly on show.

Many of the district’s primary schools focussed on the nativity story, with children dressing up to play roles including Mary, Joseph, angels, wise men and shepherds in entertaining productions full of music and panache.

While some schools chose to hold their end-of-term shows in their own halls, others attended nearby churches to perform their plays and sing Christmas songs.

Not every school though chose to run a traditional nativity.

Some schools added a modern twist to their productions, including Nailsea’s Kingshill Church School with their performance of Hosanna Rock, which took place on December 13.
