It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, in school. Our week began with the first candle lit on our Advent Wreath and, in assembly, we talked about ‘getting ready’. We know that the lights and decorations are all just reminders that WE must be ready. We talked about being kind in school and at home.
By the time we ended our week together, on Friday afternoon, the lights were up in the hall, the nativity scene set in the corridor and our tree shone brightly through the hall window. But the brightest lights, as always, were the children. One shining moment, was the little ones heading off (in Christmas hats and hi-vis vests) to deliver their letter to Santa. Other bright lights were the classmates who helped our newest children, who have joined our school from Pakistan with little or no English, to settle into school life.
Throughout Advent, we will continue to use the lights, carols and decorations to remind us all to be ready for the gift of Jesus this Christmas.
