This unique app is based on one of the UK’s favourite nativity shows, ‘A Wriggly Nativity’, by Peter Fardell. The Christmas story is told by children, with lots of songs to sing along to, cute illustrations by Matilda Tristram, games to play and much more.
Touch the play buttons to listen to the story and songs.
Each line of text/lyrics expands when spoken/sung making it easy to follow.
Touch the microphone/playback buttons to record and listen to your own story and singing.
There are three sets of activities.
1 - Infinite Pairs Games with 3 different levels (Easy, Medium & Hard).
2 - A Quiz to help remember the nativity story with multiple choice answers
3 - Musical Stars – teaches you to play 3 tunes by tapping stars in the correct order – or make up your own!
You can also make a certificate when you complete an activity or finish the story and email it to a friend. (iPad users can even add their own photo and print the certificate!)
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
Updated for iOS 11
Ratings and Reviews
This App is superb. It takes you on an interactive journey through the nativity story with catchy songs to learn along the way. It is easy to navigate (as my five-year-old has discovered!) and there are plenty of surprises to keep a small one's attention. On the surface, it is a colourfully illustrated, fun story to enjoy, but as you peel away the layers, you discover there's a lot more to it. My daughter particularly enjoys composing songs using the stars and recording herself singing the songs. As a primary school teacher, I would also highly recommend this for any Early Years and Foundation Stage classroom, especially if a Christmas production of the 'Wriggly Nativity' is planned - it would be an excellent way for the children to learn the story and songs!
A really sweet app, your children will absorb the nativity story while having fun!
This is a beautifully produced app that will teach your children about the nativity without them knowing they are being taught! Lots of fun things to find on each page, stars that make a different note, angels that fly animals that jump up and down. My four year old will love this and what is nice my seven year old will really enjoy recording his version of the account and doing the harder level games. A great app, worth every penny. More please!
Brilliant interactive app
Having done "A Little Nativity" today in our toddler group, our 2 and 3 year old we're kept occupied for over half an hour with just reading the story and playing with the moving characters. 2 year old son laughed his head off at the chicken and cow noises and I laughed out loud at the skipping and hopping sheep!
The quiz was perfect for my daughter who is 3, she could answer almost all the questions correctly so she must have been really listening. What a fantastic app! Definitely recommended!
