The children have enjoyed a fabulous journey of activites througout the day celebrating the birth of Jesus. This morning they enjoyed games with Miss Smart where they had to 'rescue ' each other. Then they proceeded to retrace the steps of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the shepherds and the wise men. Just before lunch Mrs O'Loan retold the story using decorated stone. The children then got to choose their own and decorate them to retell the story. After lunch we made story bracelets with Mrs Belfield using pipe cleaners and beads for the characters. Then we went on to make Christmas decorations signifying 'Jesus Light of the World' with Miss Everest. The last activity was in the hall where the children enjoyed dancing with flags and ribbons.
The day ended with the traditional nativity scene up on the field where the whole school sung Christmas songs and Happy Birthday to Jesus.
A very spotty selection of Sycamore Class children.
