Today we explored all the unusual events and unexpected turns that happened in the story of Jesus' birth. We tackled some tricky questions, such as why was Jesus born in a stable or why did God choose Mary?
To help us understand the phrase 'Jesus the light of the world', we made pinprick cross symbols and enjoyed illuminating our work with torches. We discussed the lights in the Nativity Story and how they too could be linked to 'the Light of Christ'.
In the afternoon, we prepared for this week's Living Nativity by decorating jam jars to be used as lanterns.
