Christmas at Loughton

During the last week of term, some special events and activities took place which helped the children to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Christingle Assembly

The first was an assembly called “Christingle” which was led by members of the Watling Valley Parish.  The team told the story of the events around the birth of Jesus, using children who dressed up for the drama.  To which prepare for the assembly, two children from each class had made a Christingle of their own.  A Christingle is an orange with a red ribbon around the centre, four cocktail sticks which have sweets or fruit on them and a candle in the top of the orange.  The team told the children the meaning of each part.  The lights were dimmed as the Christingle candles were lit and the children sang a Christmas song or carol.  Everyone really enjoyed it and we send our thanks to the Watling Valley Team.

Christmas Cracked

Another activity was “Christmas Cracked” which the year 6 classes have been taking part in.  The activity is set in the local Baptist Church and run by members of Bridgebuilder, who are a Milton Keynes based Christian charity. The children did a variety of things such as a quiz, charades, mince-pie making, watching a drama and filling in a booklet.  All these were to help the children remember the true meaning of Christmas.  Year 6 were excited by the fast pace delivery and humour which made their experience truly memorable.

As well as these, there has been a large Nativity scene in Reception which has interested the children.

The children still have many exciting things to come such as the Christmas lunch, their class Christmas party and the Christmas Jumper Day where we are asking for a 50p donation for Save the Children.
