Q. I am a primary teacher and was wondering if Scoilnet has a section on Christmas or nativity plays?
A. There is no specific section as such covering this genre. However, the Primary Teachers Resource Finder does contain curriculum focused resources for many aspects of Drama - classified under the topics of Reflecting; Exploring & Making; and Communicating.
The following specific links on Scoilnet might be of some help:
The Littlest Christmas Tree, a short simple play ideal for junior and senior infants.
Dramatix.org, a collection of free plays on various themes including Christmas.
'Nativity Play' From the Catholic Ireland website it contains a script for an actual play including suggested hymns.
The Story of Baby Jesus Complete script and acting instructions for primary children.
Open House Nativity Play Script aimed at 15-18-year-olds. Could be adapted for younger students.
The Music Room Christian songs based on the Christmas story and other Bible stories. Suitable for use in conjunction with children's nativity plays
Costumes for Christmas Plays Contains a practical guide. Also, the My Christmas Pagent site has some suggestions. New
The 'Christmas Theme Page' is also a one-stop location for many links on readings and activities.
The Digital Story of the Nativity (Christmas 2.0) is a modern take on the story featuring Facebook, Twitter and social media in general. Could inspire a class project. (YouTube video so may not be accessible in class.) New
