Year 3 RE Inspire Workshop

5 December 2017

‘Mary gave birth to her son, wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger.’
Luke 2:7

On Tuesday 5th December Year 3, pupils, staff, parents, grandparents and friends shared a wonderful RE Inspire Workshop focussed upon the real meaning of Christmas.

Starting with a prayer we discussed how St Francis has created the first nativity scene to help people reflect upon and appreciate the amazing gift of God coming to earth as a humble servant Saviour.

This year we decided to create peg dolly figures which provided lovely figures for the wonderful stables which the families had already worked upon at home. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the chance to take time together preparing prayerfully for the approaching season.

We know the cribs will make a new wonderful centre piece of your Christmas decorations. We have really put Christ into Christmas.
