Stansted school hosts virtual nativity play
Coronavirus restrictions mean schools cannot invite parents to watch children perform in traditional nativity plays this festive season.
However, Magna Carta Primary Academy in Stansted will record reception year pupils making their stage debuts and send the video to family members.
Reception teacher Melissa Roberts said children will wear their costumes and they will film the performance outside, where singing is allowed.
“This year, the reception children at Magna Carta will be involved in a virtual nativity play.

“We did not want the children and families to miss out. It is also a good way to teach the children the story of Jesus.
“We are so pleased to have come up with an alternative solution, so the children and families do not miss out on their very first school nativity.
