KS2 Nativity Plays (Ages 5-9)

There’s no better way to celebrate the festive season and the end of term than with a KS2 nativity. A nativity production provides a wonderful opportunity to bring together the whole school community during a special time of year.

Our extensive collection of KS2 nativities has been written especially for ages 7-11. You’ll also find that many of our scripts cater to a broader age range to allow for a whole primary school nativity performance!

In what is always a busy time of year, our fun-filled KS2 nativity scripts and music will help you to teach the children the nativity story, build on their confidence and team-building skills, and provide you with all the tools to put on a school musical production that’s exciting, energetic and memorable for all.

Choosing Your KS2 Nativity

There's plenty of choice when it comes to our collection of KS2 nativity plays, so you can find the best production for your students. Each of our KS2 nativity scripts tells the classic festive story in a different way, each bringing a fun and up-beat twist to the tale.

Our KS2 nativities are also varied in run time, the number of speaking roles, and ideal cast size. There is scope for flexibility with all of our nativities, however, you may want to pick up an editable version of the script for extra customisation.

Some of our favourite KS2 nativities include:

- ‘Bethlehem Ballroom’, with seven head-bopping, toe-tapping songs to delight both the cast and the audience.

- ‘Twinkle Town', which is a super short and funny nativity play with four brilliant songs.

- 'An Angel, A Star and a Stable', is another shorter, adaptable nativity play that tells the story in a classic way with engaging songs.

- 'The Inn Crowd', is a fresh take on the nativity story with a focus on the animals of Bethlehem, making for fun characters and catchy songs that the children will love.

- 'Hooray in a Manger', is an uplifting nativity tale based on the journey to Bethlehem, featuring seven, easy-to-learn songs and a wide range of speaking roles.

- 'Hay Presto', is a heart-warming, funny KS2 nativity with a large cast size, toe-tapping songs and centred around the residents of Bethlehem.
