The Season of Advent

Now, that we are in the month of December, our Christmas preparations are in full swing! 

We launched the start of our festivities with our EYFS Advent Day on Wednesday 1st December. We learnt about how Christians prepare for one of their biggest festivals by making advent wreaths and calendars. In our class Reflection Area, we have set out our purple prayer cloth which is the clergy colour for preparation. We are preparing to celebrate Jesus' birth on 25th December.

As well as this, we have begun rehearsing our Christmas worship, telling the story of Jesus' birth. The children have been fantastic at learning the words to all the songs and we cannot wait to share this with you next Thursday (9th) December! We have been thinking about how the festival is celebrated around the world and what traditions different countries have at Christmas time.

The postbox is now up in the school office so do remember to post your Christmas cards to your friends and staff in school.
