Bradley Primary School’s Eva Clayton, Phoebe Albone, Bethany Hunt, Freddie Harrison, Lynden Hargreaves and Ben O’Keefe huddle around baby Jesus
Youngsters across Craven have been dressing up as shepherds, kings, angels and animals to tell the original story of Christmas.
Most opted for a traditional nativity, but others have chosen a more contemporary approach.
For instance, pupils at Cracoe and Rylstone Primary School expanded on their current Second World War topic and wrote their own play about a group of London evacuees staying in Cracoe in 1942.
It included jive dancing and a community sing-song of wartime songs.
