This week, year 5 were fortunate enough to be invited to St George's Church, Gravesend to attend an event led by 'Churches Together'.
We were told the story of Christmas through chocolate bars, made mince pies and did a quiz to test our knowledge.
'At 'Why Christmas?’ we were told that the reason Mary and Joseph left Nazareth was because the Romans wanted more money for taxes - so they went to Bethlehem.
The Bible doesn't even know how many Wise Men there were! They predicted that there were three as there were three gifts.

Firstly, Tayyibah and Margaret had a competition on who could put the most baubles on a small Christmas tree, Tayyibah won! Then we decorated our mince pies in a festive style. Afterwards, we had a test to see who knew more about Christmas and Jesus` birth. Finally we heard a story about the birth of Jesus’ birth with chocolate.
