Child being dressed up as a shepherd

It's that time of year when many of you are not just getting ready for Santa's arrival, you're also very busy preparing for the Christmas play!

Many schools and groups put on a special performance, often about the nativity story, during December.

We asked you whether you're taking part in one and what you have to do for it. Or, if it's happened already, how did it go?

I am in a Christmas play which is called: "Ralph the Reindeer" and I am Ralph. Its about Ralph who has to step in for Rudolph when Rudolph has a cold and Ralph is too nervous to do it! Time is running out so Santa and the elves have to help Ralph AND Rudolph!

This year I'm playing Mary Poppins and I have so many solos. I'm in year 6 now and I'm always a narrator so this makes me feel good for my last Christmas play.

We are a different school because we don't do nativities, like last year we did the musical "Rockerfella" and recently we did "Snow White And The 8 Dwarves". I had a few minor parts like a soloist singer and the voice of the mirror.

I'm doing a carol concert. We are all singing and I am also a narrator in a funny part of the nativity.

In our school we did a play called Rock the Baby, and the children in Year 1/2 were shepherds and angels. The best bit was the singing. My favourite songs were Carrying the Gifts and Look in the Mirror because they were fun.
