Little angels are not Scrooges!
Cherubic angels and a favourite classic Dickens tale feature in our final collection of pictures showing how the Christmas spirit was brought to life in schools this year.
Krishna Avanti Primary School, in Spencefield Lane, Evington, Leicester, was established a year ago, and its early years pupils melted parents' hearts with its inaugural carol service, at St Denys' Church, and traditional nativity at St Joseph's Catholic academy.
Head Christopher Spall said: "In the church, two of our 'angels', Kalindi and Meera, who are five and six, sang two verses of Away in a Manger, which just melted everyone."
Pupils from years five and six at Stokes Wood Primary School, in Blackett Avenue, New Parks, Leicester, put on a performance of Scrooge, the well-loved adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Head Jane Gadsby said the show was "just fantastic".
"It was a full house with standing room only," she said.
"It was put together as a team and the parents worked wonderfully. We had three different Scrooges because there were too many lines for one to cope with."
In all, 76 children aged from nine to 11 took part.
Tyler Marlow, 10, who played the Scrooge of Christmas Past, said: "I was nervous but when I got going I really enjoyed it."
Wiktoria Sizalewska, nine, said: "It was really hard but with lots of practice, it ended up really good."
