Learning about the Advent Wreath and the Crib

Outside Ms Coleman's office is a beautiful advent wreath.  The four candles around the wreath represent the four weeks leading up to Christmas and they symbolise hope, love, peace and joy.
The candle in the middle is lit on Christmas day. 

 The school has a fantasic crib inside the main door.  We learned all about baby Jesus being born in a stable as there was no room anywhere else for him.  We are practicing very hard for our nativity play, where the inkeeper has a very busy life and lots of noisy guests and no rooms left for Mary and Joseph. 
We made some lovely Christmas cards with the nativity scene on the front of them.
