Year 2 – Christmas Prayers
As our school continue to count down to Advent, Year 2 have spent time making a Christmas decoration for our Christmas tree. The children then decorated the front with glitter and wrote a special prayer on the reverse. Children were then asked to write a prayer that was meaningful to them. The children wrote down some very thoughtful and touching prayers that included: I pray for those in need, I pray for the homeless, I pray for our local community…
Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!).
Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.
