Experience Christmas

The Year Two to Year Six children have taken part in a number of hands-on and reflective activities, in order to learn all about Christmas. They have learnt about why Jesus was a gift and also how they can prepare their hearts for Christmas, during Advent, by forgiving others and saying sorry for any wrongdoings. They also learnt how to overcome their fears and have confidence, when they face any challenges, understanding that God would be with them, just like he was with Mary when she received the announcement from an angel. The children were left with the question, after listening to the words of the poet Christina Rossetti, how could they give their heart to others and carry on Jesus’ work through their actions’.
