Taking the theme of ‘No room at the inn’, the Year 5 and Year 6 children’s musical contrasts the bustling commercialism of a modern Christmas with the plight of the homeless at this special time of the year.
It’s a manic pre-Christmas shopping day and the streets are packed with bargain hunters. No-one notices homeless Kate falling on the pavement, apart from Nicky and Paul, who help her up. When they offer to help Kate to get home, Nicky and Paul find out that she has no home – except for a cardboard box.
Shocked, the children want to help Kate. They go and tell their mother about her, but Mum is just angry to hear that they have been talking to a homeless stranger. As Christmas draws nearer, the children can’t get Kate out of their minds. Will they be able to persuade Mum to help?
‘I think it is very apt at this time of the year to think of those who won’t be enjoying a warm and happy Christmas. The children have learnt a great deal in performing this play, as well as having lots of fun on the way.’ Miss Cameron, Y6 Class Teacher.
‘The children were magnificent, the performance was a showcase of talent from start to finish.’ Mrs Thomson, Y5 Class Teacher.
