Has Christmas lost its true meaning?
In our RE lessons this term, the children will be finding out what the true meaning of Christmas is to Christians and compare this with what Christmas means to them.
To support their learning, we are setting the children a challenge which is to create a Christmas tree decoration showing what Christmas means to Christians. We will display their decorations on a tree at St Margaret’s Christmas Tree Festival in Rainham.
There are some ideas below for inspiration! Decorations need to be brought into school before the end of November.
