With Christmas almost here, we asked reception students at one school what they thought would be different if Jesus was born today.

The four and five year olds, from Broadford Primary School in Faringdon Avenue, Havering gave their unique insight into how the nativity story would be different in the modern era.

Grace Leadbitter, four, came up with the suggestion of Jesus being born in Tesco while Paige McGeoghan, five, thought a telescope would guide the wise men.

Presents for baby Jesus included an X Box, suggested by Connor Holloway, five, and Harry Hann, also five, said Mary and Joseph would use a bike instead of a donkey. Kaitline Smethurst, four, thought that Minnie Mouse would be a good Mary while Ben 10 could be Joseph and they would use a nice pink car instead of a donkey.

Other suggestions for who could be Mary and Joseph were Smurfs, courtesy of Charlie Ilott, four, and Princess Layer and Luke Skywalker form Tyler Wager, four.

We would love to hear if your children have some more unusual ideas about Christmas and the nativity. Let us know in the comments section below, visit our Facebook page or tweet us @romfordrecorder.
