Pupils at Axminster Community Primary Academy entertained parents and friends to a feast of seasonal entertainment at the end of the school term.

Their traditional Nativity play was given a new twist – taking on the form of a Christmas Café, with the audience informally seated at tables while the pupils sang songs and performed sketches.

Youngsters from Year one upwards took par in the two performances, which attracted around 100 parents on each occasion.

Members of the Parents, Teachers and Friends’ Association provided the guests with refreshments including teas, coffees and mince pies.

Lin Coley, chair of governors at the school said: “The children performed a lovely production to parents and friends to give an entertaining end to the autumn term.

“They had obviously worked very hard on their different songs and sketches.

“There were many smiles and we can look forward to Christmas and the challenges ahead in 2018.”
