Foundation stage pupils at Herons’ Moor Academy in Weston-super-Mare have celebrated the festive season in traditional fashion by performing a nativity.

All of the 112 children in the foundation year group, which is for four to five-year-olds, had a role in the play, which was called The Christmas Star.

Head teacher Julie Fox said: “The children had a great time in rehearsals and have put together a wonderful show.

“All of the pupils in the Foundation Stage had a role and worked really hard to learn their parts.

“The children never cease to amaze us with how they learn all of the songs and lines and how well they perform.”

Herons’ Moor Academy is the first primary academy to join the Inspirational Futures Trust, which is an expanding sponsor of academies that was established in 2014 to enable children and young people to realise and exceed their potential in their education and careers.

The Trust provides bespoke support at every level of education, with specialisms in primary, secondary, special and alternative education sectors, and has a board with representatives from business, industry and higher education.
