Pupils at an east Suffolk primary school have wowed audiences for another year with their annual nativity performances.

Benhall St Mary Primary School took its nativity play to the Riverside Community Centre in Stratford St Andrew, singing at the village church, as well as performing in house.

Headteacher Chris Gallagher said: “It was very good and possibly our biggest and most successful year.

“The music came without a script so we had our youngest children write the script, which added a bit of humour to it.”

About 60 children took part in the play.

Mr Gallagher added: “Every year we get more and more children taking part.

“It’s nice because the whole community comes together.

“It’s a real special thing, with five-year-olds singing solos, they’re really good and it’s great for their self esteem.

“There’s a lot of talk about pressures on the curriculum but it’s crucial we do things like this.

“All of the performances were in front of rows and rows of people. I’m very proud.”
