Kate is mad about Christmas! She loves the whole festive season; lights, decorations, cold weather, the smell of greenery, candles, but mainly carols! She has been carol singing, without fail every Christmas Eve since the age of 5.
One of Kate’s favourite things about Christmas is being in school. Every year, she writes a new nativity for the schools in which she works, and they obligingly perform it as her adorable little guinea pigs!
The nativities on this website include the vocal tracks, backing tracks and different versions of the script. These are written for small schools, medium sized schools and big schools, allowing everyone to have a coveted solo line! See below for more information about Kate’s nativities.
PAPA DUVAL’S SPECIAL CHRISTMAS
It is Christmas Eve and Papa Duval, an old shoemaker is thinking about the Christmas Story. That night, he dreams an angel tells him that he will see Jesus, if only he looks hard enough. All the next day, Papa Duval looks out of his window and he seems many people passing, in need of a hot drink, a warm fire or a kind word. As he goes to bed that night, Papa Duval is disappointed that he does not see the special visitor. When the angel appears to him again, Papa Duval realises what being a good samaritan is all about. This musical nativity is for key stage one and two.
LITTLE AMAL AND THE LONG WALK
Little Amal lives with her mother in a beautiful city, but one day war comes to her country and they have to leave quickly. They arrive in an unfamiliar place on Christmas Eve where some kind strangers offer to share their meal and tell them the story of Christmas. They realise that Jesus, too, was a refugee and the final moving song, ‘Open your heart’ asks what we can do to help refugees in our own communities.
