Children at the festively-named St Nicholas School in Stevenage celebrated Christmas with 'superb performances' in their nativity plays.

Nursery, reception and Years 1 and 2 each put on their own nativity plays at the school, and pupils in Years 3 and 4 performed at St Andrew and St George's Church in front of their parents.
