Entitled Nativity for Little Ones, the show included a 34-strong cast of two, three and four-year olds and featured songs ranging from Giddy Up Little Donkey and Jumping for Joy, to Three Wise Men and Away in a Manger.

The main parts of Mary, Joseph, the inn keeper and the wise men were played by older pupils, with younger tots taking on the roles of donkeys, camels, sheep, pigs and cows.

Ladybird manager Vanessa Harris, who will be retiring in a few months' time, said the production gave youngsters an understanding of the meaning of Christmas.

She added: 'The children and parents absolutely love it and, as this year was my last nativity at Ladybird, it is particularly special for me.'
