On Wednesday 15th December, we held a Nativity Day in school.
Christmas is a key date in our school diary as a church school and we really wanted to make the Nativity story come alive this year whilst remembering the real reason for Christmas. We invited all children and staff to come into school dressed up as a character or thing related to the first Christmas. We saw some really lovely outfits!
The children in Key Stage 2 created a Nativity trail with each class window reflecting a different part of the Christmas story. The children travelled all the way to Bethlehem and then met two donkeys! The children were all very excited to meet the donkeys. We'd like to thank our PTA Forest Friends for helping provide the Donkey visit!
Later in the day, the children then came into the hall for a period of reflection and wrote Christmas prayers of thanks and hope. The prayers were put together to make Christmas trees within our school hall, ready for our candle lit service on Friday 17th.
Christian values are a hugely important part of our school atmosphere. It's so great to take part in events like this which combine our Christian values with our ambition to make Forest & Sandridge a fun place to learn.
