Schoolchildren took their nativity play on the road to entertain an older audience.

Pupils of Benhall St Mary Primary School performed for members of the Alde Valley Luncheon Club at the Riverside Centre, in Stratford St Andrew.

Deputy head, Katie Jenkins said: “We have a long tradition of taking the nativity on tour as part of our links to the community.

“It builds confidence to perform not only for parents, but on different stages. The children sometimes have to think on their feet but are always unfazed.

“Drama is important to us. As well as confidence, it helps teamwork, speaking and listening skills.”
