Proud parents packed into a village church to watch their children take part in a traditional Christmas service.
Youngsters from Hempnall Primary School, near Long Stratton, took part in a procession from the school to the church which was led by two miniature donkeys and the year six year group in nativity costume.
Around 100 parents saw their children sing festive carols with solo performances by year six pupil Isla, who sang O Little Town of Bethlehem, and year four pupil Elizabeth who sang and played guitar to Silent Night.
Headteacher Laura Jestico said: 'The procession behind the donkeys was absolutely delightful.
'So many parents turned up and it was the most full our carol service has been in years. I have had such positive feedback from people.'
She added: 'I was very proud of the children and I think they have done an amazing job. If children are given the opportunity, they can shine very brightly.'
