HELLO everyone and welcome to the Journal Gang page. I know that lots of you are performing your Nativity plays this week and are getting ready to appear on stage dressed as a shepherd, angel, king or maybe even Mary or Joseph. It is always lovely to be in a Nativity play or to watch one, as it reminds us of the Christmas story, which is important at this time of year. If you are in a nativity play I hope that you have a lovely time and I’m sure that your families are really excited about seeing you on stage.
