We read the story of the birth of Jesus all together and talked about why we celebrate Christmas now. The children had the opportunity to share some of their family traditions and we talked about the importance of them. We then looked a bit more closely at the visitors to the stable and talked about why they were so interested – the children had lots of good ideas and shared why they would also want to visit the stable. We used the Nativity to write sentences… ‘Look at Mary and Joseph.’ Mrs Clark was working with some children on creating their own nativity scene and remembering all of the different characters in the story.
