Year 1 visited Highway Vineyard Church to support our learning in RE. This half term we have been focusing on Christianity and answering the question ‘How do Christians celebrate Christmas?’ Visiting the church was an amazing opportunity to cement the learning we have been doing in class. The children had the chance to see the characters from the Christmas Story brought to life and talk to them about the roles they played. Mary taught us how to make bread, the shepherd helped us count the sheep and the wise man told us about the gifts he planned to give. We even met Dan who told us about how people celebrate Christmas today and we spotted some of the things we see around town, like fairy lights and Christmas trees. It was a lot of fun!
