A Christmas themed ‘Prayer Space’ with Hannah Richards from Initiatives for Christian Education.
Class 1 had the opportunity to participate in 5 activities designed to encourage them to explore their own ideas and beliefs about Christmas.
The activities included:
- Light – Jesus is the light of the world. How can you be a light in the world?
- Saying thank you.
- Writing invitations to be part of Gods family.
- Making Christmas tree decorations that include a message on keeping our world beautiful.
- The nativity story. What gift would you have given to baby Jesus?
The children really engaged with the experience and made some very insightful and thoughtful comments of their own. They believe that key values such as kindness, love, peace and thankfulness are all very important during our Christmas celebrations.
