FAMILIES and teachers watched with pride as young children acted out the Nativity story.
These are the latest youngsters to appear in our annual Little Angels coverage as school pupils start to perform in their nativity shows.
Weeks of hard work and rehearsals paid off as these shows went down a treat with mums, dads, grandparents and carers.
Here we have youngsters from Barnard Grove, Clavering and Throston primary schools.
The Mail’s photographers will be capturing the magic at performances across the Hartlepool area over the next couple of weeks so look out for lots more pictures.
We will also be producing a special pull-out which will feature in the Mail later this month.
