Advent is almost here…

Year Two have been enjoying learning about Advent in RE for the last two weeks. As well as making our own Advent calendars, we have also found out about the more traditional Advent wreath. Advent wreaths are usually made using leaves but we loved making our own versions on Friday. Starting with a paper plate, we then drew round our own hands on green paper so that we could cut out lots of hands and stick them around the plate to look like a wreath. We then rolled up four pieces of red paper to represent the candles for the four Sundays of Advent, compete with yellow paper flames. We finished our creations with a white candle (rolled up white paper this time!) in the middle of the red ones to represent Christ.
Of course, most of us will be enjoying a chocolate filled Advent calendar throughout December but this year we will be able to open the windows on our very own handmade calendars too.
