This week, as part of Advent and leading up to Christmas, Year 4 have been learning all about the Christian tradition called Christingle. Each part of the fruit and decorations have a significant symbol in Christianity; the orange represents the world; the four sticks represent the four compass points and the seasons; the sweets and raisins represents the harvest God has given us; the candle represents Jesus as light of the world and finally the red ribbon represents the blood of Jesus. As you can see, the children really enjoyed making their own Christingles!
Year 4 had an amazing day of delving into history by dressing up as Vikings and Anglo-Saxons and learning all about key aspects from this era. Firstly they had a debate at a ‘Thing’ which was an early form of parliament. They wrote some excellent speeches and later performed them in front of the class. Children made Anglo-Saxon jewellery and even baked some very heavy Viking bread! Throughout the day children did a range of Viking related activities that enhanced their learning experiences. Thank you to all Year 4 parents for supporting our day by providing such brilliant costumes.
