As part of our RE unit of Christianity, Y4 were invited to visit Christ Church in the village. As well as seeing inside the church, we learned about some Christian beliefs, and reminded ourselves of the Nativity story.
Back in school we created Christingles from oranges, ribbon, candles and sweets on cocktail sticks. For Christians each part represents something special to them, for example the orange represents the world, with the candle representling Jesus. For our own Christingles, those who have Christianity as their religion created one with these meanings, while for those who have another religion, or who aren’t religious, created something with meaning for them and their family, with each part representing something important to them.
Many thanks for the invite!
