Wonky crowns, out-of-tune singing and PLENTY of cute-factor, the nativity is such a fun part of school life. All of our nativities come with everything you need to put on an amazing show, giving you the time to focus on what really matters: bringing your school community together to have some fun!
The Big Little Nativity is a wonderfully easy and enjoyable telling of the traditional nativity. It’s BIG because it’s a huge story, with show-stopping songs; it’s LITTLE because it’s super-simple for younger voices and easily taught with limited time.
DON’T BE AFRAID!
Don’t Be Afraid! is a lively and positively uplifting retelling of the nativity. All the familiar characters – Mary and Joseph, shepherds, wise men, innkeepers, and even the donkey – have to overcome their fears, for the story to unfold as we all know it.
At Out of the Ark, we love nativities (we’ve published over 50 of them)! We feel really privileged to help schools reap the amazing benefits of this festive tradition. Ever since our first nativity, written in 1989, our team have been writing, publishing and producing showstopping nativities for children and schools around the world, and we are so proud that so many thousands of primary schools use our nativities every year.
The Highs And Lows Of Putting On A Nativity
Working with children is never dull. My approach is to make the children’s experience of the nativity fun, above all else. Polished performances would be lovely, in reality, there’s always at least one kid that is completely tone deaf and sure as eggnog is eggnog, that kid will have the loudest voice and want to stand right at the front!
Top Tips For Filming Your Nativity
We spoke to Emma Cornet, Kodály Musicianship Teacher at Gallions Primary School in London, and Ashley Roye, former Music Manager at Gallions (now Schools Manager at London Music Masters), about their experiences of filming children’s performances.
