The stage is ready for the performances, the decorations are up and the Children are learning about how Christians celebrate Christmas. On Monday, the children learnt that advent is a season of preparation leading up to the nativity. They also learnt about some of the Christian practices associated with Advent, which can include daily prayer, keeping an Advent Calendar, lighting an Advent wreath, putting up a Christmas tree and decorations. The next two weeks are a busy time in school and there are many activities taking place, including the seasonal performances, choir performances, a visit to St Paul’s church and the pantomime. Please check the website or refer to last week’s newsletter for dates and times.
