In our Federation assembly this morning, Ms Jones talked about the season of Advent and its importance in the Christian church.
In the classroom Year 4 have made their own Advent Wreath and talked further about the significance of each candle. Every child helped to prepare it.
On the First Sunday (yesterday) a purple candle is lit. This is the candle of Hope. Next Sunday, the second purple candle is lit, this the candle of preparation. On the third Sunday the pink candle is lit, this is the candle of joy. The fourth candle (purple) is lit the Sunday before Christmas, it is the candle of love. Finally, during the Christmas Eve midnight service the candle in the middle is lit, we call this the Christ candle.
We will leave our wreath in our classroom window for you to see.
