PARENTS of nursery children were invited into class to take part in a meet and play session.

Children and parents enjoyed the Come and celebrate Christmas event at Ysgol Llywelyn, Rhyl. Pupils sang Christmas songs before helping to tell the nativity story and took part in craft and activities.

At Ysgol y Foryd, in Kinmel Bay, each year group performed a show and took part in a festive funday.

Nursery children performed Our first nativity while reception class enjoyed a day at St Mary's Church in Towyn.

Nicola Rowlands, acting headteacher at Ysgol Y Foryd, said: "The nursery children performed beautifully and made their teachers and parents very proud.

"Reception class, at St Mary's church, took part in various Christmas themed activities and performed A 'wriggly' nativity for parents and grandparents.

"We would like to express thanks to Reverend Chris Feak for welcoming us to church for the event."

Nursery at Ysgol y Foryd performed Our first nativity

Year one performed two performances of Sugar Plum, a play about a sugar plum fairy who liked to fix everything with her Christmas magic. The fairy was played by Emmie Bodell, age five.

Year two visited Kinmel Bay church and completed Christmas activities and performed A miracle in town to parents and grandparents

Mrs Rowlands added: "Unfortunately, in the Sugar Plum, a cheeky elf called Elvyn accidentally broke Emmie's wand. The part was played by Mason Mills, aged five. It was all wonderful at the end when Santa fixed Sugar Plum's wand and all was ok.

"Santa was played by Jack Morris, aged five. I have seen many Christmas shows but this was definitely one of the best.

"In terms of year two, we would like to say thank you to Pastor Ben for welcoming us to the church.

"All shows were superb with some great young actors. Each year group has a different Christmas experience so throughout their time at Y Foryd they get to enjoy all of them."
