Christmas is coming...
Today, Year 4 were very kindly invited to St James’ Church, to take part in some festive celebrations.
After walking down to the Church, we thought about different ways that messages are sent today and compared this to how Mary and Joseph found out about their special news.
We watched an interesting video clip about the chords/cords of Christmas and then split off in to different groups. Each group spent time doing a range of activities, organised by the lovely volunteers at the Church.
One group made some beautiful Angels and Manger scenes which will look beautiful hung on your Christmas trees at home.
Meanwhile, another group sang some fun songs sat in the choir.
Next, the children discovered how the bells worked in the belfry and wrote their own messages to be rung out through the town.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the children were incredibly well behaved. We were very proud of them and they were a real credit to the school.
