Advent is often called a 'Little Lent'.  In the days leading up to Christmas it is important that our children think of doing things that help us to be better people or help the world to be a better place.  Advent is always a special time of year in school with Prayer Stations and fund raising.  Year 6 remind us about the meaning of Advent and the role of the Prophets in predicting the bith of Christ,  in their beautiful assembly on Advent Day. Due to Covid, Year 6 recorded a relection on the real meaning of Advent. PLease see videos below. 

Advent day is a day off timetable so that the children can think carefully about their Advent promises.  This year they made Angels to decorate our huge tree in the hall - each one carrying a personal promise that they make between themselves and God The children also enjoyed decorating their classrooms and making cards and Christmas crafts.

Unfortunately, EYFS and KS1 are unable to perform a Nativity this year. However, each class are busy making 2D or 3D pieces of art work that describe a scene in the Nativity Story. These will then be pulled together to make a short video which depicts the Nativity.  We will distribute this with our families and friends when the final product is complete. 

Please take some time alone or with your child, read the following reflections and think about the real meaning of Advent during these troublesome times.
