Nativity Scenes

This year S1's have been creating Nativity Scenes in RMPS which are on display in the Library.

The Nativity's have been created by both individuals and groups to show. The Nativitys have been made from a mixture of different materials. Some are made from fruit and veg (a baby Brussels sprout Jesus!!), clay, play dough and one out of boiled eggs. All the Nativity scenes look absolutely amazing and we are all amazed by the work the S1's have created.
