The real meaning of Christmas.

Meh:  On Friday we went to visit one of our local churches, Christchurch, to learn all about the true meaning of Christmas.

Rhea:  We learnt about the whole story of Jesus’ birth.

Rohan and Rhea:  People that were not seen as important, like the shepherds, were made to feel special because the angel told them where to find Jesus and they did!

Morgan:  Sitting by the fire we learnt that the shepherds were at first frightened by the angel messengers.  But they did not want to miss their big chance to see the baby Jesus and this helped them to feel brave enough to go.

Amrit:  We took the long journey to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph.

Peter and Alex:  It was a seventy mile journey and took two days.

Paige:  We wrote down ideas for gifts that we would have liked to have given the baby Jesus.  I gave him love and courage.

Daniel:  At one of the nativity stations we learnt that ‘Advent’ means coming, the coming of Jesus.

Mrs Crow:  We sat by a giant advent wreath and each took a pine cone and wrapped it in tinsel.  As we did this we thought about someone who might need help with something.  I thought of someone who might need strength to help them face obstacles and barriers in their life.

Puffins class would like to say a big thank you to the Rev Seggy and to the members of the congregation of Christchurch, for all the effort and preparation that must have gone into putting on such a fabulous morning of Nativity learning for us.
