New realm of experience

Year 1 have stepped into a new realm of experience this half term.

We had a virtual visitor from the church to enrich our topic on Christianity and the symbols of Christmas for Christians. Tom visited us from his church in Cockfosters, to talk us through why gifts, trees, advent calendars, special stars and many more things, are important symbols for Christians at this time of year. The children were able to ‘unmute’ themselves to ask really interesting questions.

Why is Christmas important to Christians? (Fay - Dragonfly)

Why is Gold a Christmas colour? (Olivia - Butterfly)

Why do we get presents? (Ethan - Ladybird)

When did we start celebrating Christmas? (Nicole - Grasshopper)

Thank you again Tom Inman for your fantastic virtual workshop!
