Year 4 have had a busy few weeks. As part of our focus on Christianity this half term, we have been diving deeper into the meaning of Christmas and thinking about the most significant parts of the Nativity for Christians.
We looked at the Christmas symbols in the Nativity such as the star, the gifts from the Three Wise Men and Jesus being born in a stable and laid in a manger. We discussed how these represented Jesus being humble and a extraordinarily special gift from God, who came for everyone. We enjoyed making our own Christmas symbols using clay.
Christingles are a sign of Christian faith. They symbolise Christ’s light as we are guided to God. We learnt about the significance of each part of the Christingle and enjoyed making our own.
In our final week we loved making Christmas cards for our family. We used collage materials to create a snowman. I wonder if there will be a white Christmas this year?
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
