Christmas starts with a Chritingle
On Friday 11th December every child was given an early Christmas gift; an orange, 4 cocktail sticks, some marshmallows, raisins, some red tape, and a candle. The children and staff were shown how to turn these ingredients into a Christingle. Mickey (the Puppet) and Paul Weston from New Generation Church joined, the online workshop. It was lovely to hear how much the children enjoyed the antics of Mickey and Paul, (the Elf), as laughter echoed around the building. By the afternoon every child in the building had created a Christingle which they shared at our socially distanced parade in the playground. In our Collective the meaning behind the Christingle was shared with the children and we were all reminded that Jesus is the light of the world.
