We’re nearly at the end of term! Our primary school work has slowed down this week with only a few lessons to take. Today we visited Year 3 at Notre Dame where 42 children looked at the question “Has Christmas lost it’s true meaning.” We used Godly Play, craft and discussion to remind ourselves what the real reason of Christmas is: Jesus! The children were fantastic and asked some great questions and had some very thought provoking comments. We will do a more in-depth post about these lessons soon with pictures!
We will also be taking this lesson to Melrose this week. We had to postpone it as Phil was stuck in Alderney at the end of last week! Please pray that this runs smoothly and the children enjoy the session.
Phil and Sarah have been to Le Rondin and Forest’s Christmas productions, both were fantastic and it was so lovely to be invited! We will also be attending the infant and junior productions at Notre Dame.
This week in senior lunch clubs it is Christmas party week. A chance to have fun, play silly games and eat yummy food with the students. This year we challenge the students to make a Christmas themed display out of marshmallows and chocolate matchmakers, so far we have had a snowman warming himself by the fire and a beautiful nativity complete with very fluffy sheep!
We will also visit La Mare High to deliver our Advent themed assembly exploring the Nativity Story and take the final prejudice and discrimination lesson for this term.
Please pray for us as we approach the end of term and also for the teachers and students of our schools!
