The Sprites Lane School, Ipswich nativity play of December 1965.


THE school Nativity is a right of passage, each year adorable youngsters take on the roles of Mary, her loyal husband Joseph, the mystical angels and the lowly shepherds and take to the stage.

Do you remember your first Nativity play? What role did you play? Were you photographed by the Ipswich Star team? View our gallery, above right, and see if you can spot yourself or your children.

We will be publishing more Nativity photos from this year with Monday’s Ipswich Star, and again on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
