The nativity play with REAL animals!

Christmas time means many of you will be starring in nativity plays at school, but here's one with a difference...

It was performed on a farm and featured real animals such as sheep and horses!

Children of mixed abilities from two schools took part in the special nativity at Longlands Care Farm in Worcester, West Midlands.

Leah went along to see how it went - and find out what it was like working with the animals!

We asked you about what you're up to for festive plays - what part are you playing? How are you preparing for the big performance?

Or if you've already had your show - we wanted to know how it went!
