Celebrating Advent

This week we are celebrating the first week of Advent.  

Many thanks to Reverend Glover at Hexham Abbey for supporting our Advent assemblies this week. He has kindly given permission to share the Christmas message below. Please watch the short message (4:27mins) and learn more about how Reverend Glover makes a link with the story of Mary in The Nativity, the word ‘yes’ and how it can relate to today. Please also see our advent assembly slides which delve deeper into the significance of Advent wreaths.

Pupils have also been learning about the significance of the Advent wreath and we would like to praise the eagerness of two Year 6 pupils who sourced and decorated our advent wreath.  Maeve and Agatha have done an excellent job in arranging some lovely evergreen foliage and berries.  Both girls are part of the new Eco Group and it is wonderful to see that we are using natural materials to celebrate Christmas. Next, we are going to source some pine cones from our site, to adorn the wreath further.
