Are your young learners performing a Nativity this year?

This resource pack can help pupils to retell the story of the Nativity using the puppet templates provided. There is also an opportunity for them to draw or add a photograph of themselves dressed in their costume for the Nativity (or in the role play area if available), with an opportunity to add words and captions to encourage emergent writing.

The resources could also be used to retell the events of the first Christmas after reading a suitable version of the Nativity to the pupils.

Included in the EYFS resource pack

Nativity puppet templates
Nativity drawing and writing worksheet
Teacher notes with guidance on how the resources could be used in the classroom
