"Mary gave birth to her son, wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger."
Year 3 parents were invited to support their child making crib figures for the Bethlehem stables they had made the previous week in school.
The children have been researching the story of Saint Francis building the first crib and they were learning that the crib helps Christians to remember the presence of Jesus in the world.
The majority of parents were able to attend this workshop and were very pleased to be invited and thought the activity was lovely.
Following the workshop the children took their cribs home so that they could remember the story of the Nativity through Advent and Christmas.
