Year 1- Nativity Songs!

In Year 1, the children will be performing their version of the Nativity before the Christmas break. We have begun to look at the songs and have been learning ‘Little Donkey’.

Here are the words if you would like to practice at home.

Little Donkey
Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.

Been a long time, little donkey 

Through the winter’s night  

Don’t give up now, little donkey  

Bethlehem’s in sight. 

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem 


Little donkey, little donkey 

Had a heavy day 

Little donkey 

Carry Mary, safely on her way.  


Miss Leatherland and Mrs Chamberlain
