This latest nativity musical from Sheila Wilson (Hosanna Rock!, Rock around the Flock!) is another gem, guaranteed to entertain your children and audience!
Its six songs are catchy but create an impressive performance, with a three-part round (which could be sung in unison if preferred), a gospel-style 'swung' song (Bethlehem Baby), optional two-part singing, and a jubilant hand-jiving finale.
The musical can be presented simply for KS1, but there's plenty in it for KS2 and it is 'cool' enough to keep Y6's happy! Plenty of narration, rhyme, and short speaking-parts mean that there's a role for everyone, and with laughter and maybe a tear in the eye, this nativity show is a certain success!
For Key Stages 1 & 2 Duration is approx 30 minutes
This is Sheila Wilson's latest Musical Nativity for 2010 so we haven't performed it yet! But, the music looks like it is going to be fun to work on. There are some lively, catchy songs, as well as a lovely gospel-style lullaby. Last year we did 'Christmas Stars' which was really enjoyable to work on, and I think this will be just as good, or if not better! The skill level of the music I would say is easy - there are just a couple of places where I am going to have to practise before I play it to the children, but on the whole, it's easy and also impressive!
