Nativity Songs

Here are the Nativity songs that we have learnt this week. It would be great if you could practise at home! Maybe you could teach your family the signs too?

Silent Night (First Verse only)

Silent night, Holy night

All is calm, all is bright

Round young virgin mother and child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

On the road to Bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its Christmas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Lying in the straw

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its christnas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Knock upon his door

Knock Knock Knock!

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

Come and join us there, good to see you. Hope to see you there…!

Little Donkey (to 1.26 only)

Little donkey, little donkey

On the dusty road

Got to keep on plodding onwards

With your precious load.

Been a long time, little donkey

Through the winter’s night

Don’t give up now, little donkey

Bethlehem’s in sight.

  Chorus Ring out those bells tonight Bethlehem, Bethlehem Follow that star tonight Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey

 Had a heavy day

 Little donkey

 Carry Mary, safely on her way.

Mary had a baby

Mary had a baby, oh lord

Mary had a baby oh my lord

Mary had a baby oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

Laid him in a manger, oh lord.

Laid him in a manger oh my lord,

Laid him in a manger oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

Shepherds came to see him, oh lord

Shepherds came to see him oh my lord,

Shepherds came to see him oh lord,

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

Named him baby Jesus, oh lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh my lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train done gone.

Shepherds Dance

Shepherds, tell me

Did you see what I saw?

I saw angels

I can’t be so sure!

Shepherds, tell me

Did you hear what I heard?

I heard good news,

News for all the world!

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

Shepherds, tell me

Why are you in a trance?

Come on! Wake up!

On your feet and dance.

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

INSTRUMENTAL DANCE

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

Glad tidings we bring,

To you and your kin,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

(Repeat)

We are so excited to perform our Nativity, even more so now we have learnt nearly all the songs!

Please continue to practise your words at home. Narrators need to be able to learn their words off by heart!

A reminder that black top and trousers/leggings for candles and narrators and pyjamas for children need to be in school by Friday 1st December in a named bag. All other costumes are provided by school.

Many thanks for your support, please let us know if you need anything.
