Young pupils at a Woodford Green school told parents and classmates the story of Christmas through song yesterday.

Children had been practising since November 8 for their production of Shine Star Shine before putting on two performances at Avon House Preparatory School in High Road.

They dressed as a variety of characters including innkeepers, sheep, camels, angels, the

wise men and of course Mary and Joseph.

And the cast from two foundation classes got a run through in front of their classmates at a dress rehearsal on Thursday.

May Abery, the school’s head of early years, said: “It’s a very engaging play because there are lots of actions and all the children were involved.”
