Christmas Service Assembly

Year 3 and 4 were very lucky to have been joined by Bishop David this morning for a lovely Christmas Service. 

Miss Williams spoke about the importance of Advent and shared with us the story of Jesus' birth in the Bible. Bishop David explained the importance of Christmas and the meaning of the special words "comfort, strength and joy". We were also treated to the wonderful story of Babushka and some facts about how Christmas is celebrated in different countries from Year 4.

Year 3 performed a beautiful Christmas poem with actions. I was super proud of their efforts and beaming smiles. The Year 3 children would like to share their poem with you:

Jesus was born on Christmas, on a very holy night

And in the sky above him, shone the very brightest light.

All of the heavenly angels, sang a song to praise his name

They told the lowly shepherds, so they left their sheep and came.

From the east the Wisemen roam, bringing gifts to share

Riches for the king of kings, to show the Saviour that they care.

Now we celebrate his birthday, in our hearts and everyday

Jesus in your humble manger, your true love is here to stay.
