Advent

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.

Advent day is a day off timetable so that the children can think carefully about their Advent promises.  This year they made Peace doves to decorate our huge tree in the hall - each one carrying a personal message or wish for Peace. The children also enjoyed decorating their classrooms and making cards and Christmas crafts.

In school we learn all about our Christmas Story as the children in Reception and KS1 perform the Nativity.  

Fund Raising this year included a Rhudolph run which raised over £2,000 for St Luke's Hospice - Thank you everyone for being so generous.  You can also send in tins and packets of food for our Reverse Advent Calendar - which will help our local families through supporting the Natwich Foodbank. You can also send in new toys which Eloise will take to the Salvation Army for their Toy Appeal.

Deacon Peter has provided us with a link to the Justice and Peace website. Their weekly Advent Reflections provide prayers and practical ways to make a difference.
