Behind the manger: spotlight on school nativity

It is that time of year when thousands of primary school children dress up in all sorts of outfits to take part in their nativity plays. An exciting time for all those involved, including teachers, parents and of the little stars themselves.

We wanted to experience one school's play, to capture all the tension and drama of a production that always lives long in the memory. We sent Claire Manning to Chaddlewood Primary School near Plymouth. If you're still not in the festive mood yet, then this will definitely put a smile on your face.
