Year 3 RE Inspire Workshop

4 December 2013

"She gave birth to her first son; wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger—there was no room for them to stay in an inn."
Luke 2:7

The spirit of Christmas came early to Year 3, as we joined with parents and friends for our Advent RE Inspire Workshop.

The workshop began with a prayer and then Miss Delaney shared the story of the original nativity play and crib. Inspired by the example of St Francis we worked together to make a nativity scene representing the humble birth of Jesus over 2000 years ago.

The cribs we have made for our own homes will support our prayer and reflection throughout Advent and Christmas.

We had a wonderful time creating cribs, colouring and cutting out the figures for our nativity scene. Our workshop ended with a beautiful prayer that Courtney had felt inspired to write.

A truly enjoyable and prayerful way to prepare for that very special day.
