We went outside to reflect on the simplicity of the real meaning of Christmas, that Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus. We need to remember that although the glitter, the tinsel and parties and presents are part of Christmas, we need to remember that Jesus is at the heart of it.
We were very proud of our nativity scenes and enjoyed walking around to view the hard work of others too.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples."
We also showed the meaning of love in a modern day setting with our own version of Blind Date!
Other Faiths Afternoon
Beech class explored the big question of:
'Why is the Guru Granth Sahib so valued by Sikh people?'
We reflected on people or things that guide us and took part in a diamond ranking activity to help us think about this. We had a lot of interesting justifications for our choices in the ranking.
We watched a video clip, where a Sikh girl explained why the Guru Granth Sahib is so important to Sikh followers. We learned that the holy book is seen as the 11th Guru and is treated as a living thing. We were really interested to find out why it is treated with so much respect.
