WALP0LE Highway Primary School took a different tact with its Christmas production this year to fully include one of its pupils.

The play – titled ‘The Shining Signing Star’ – featured sign language throughout as Year 6 pupil Hattie Greenwood is deaf.

Hattie took the sparkling role of the star, remaining on stage through most of the production.

The role of Mary was played by Year 5 pupil Alys Cooper and Joseph was played by Year 6 pupil Bradley Littlewood.

The whole school took part and everyone joined in wholeheartedly with singing, dancing and signing.

A spokesperson from the school said: “It worked really well and the parents seemed to really enjoy it.”
