Class 1R spent yesterday morning making Christingles.

Mrs Tite read the children the story of how Bishop John made the first Christingle.

The children then made their own using oranges to represent the world, four cocktail sticks to show the four seasons, fruits and sweets to show the goodness in the world, a candle to represent light and finally a red ribbon to show Jesus’ love.

When they were finished, we lit the candles and sang Away in a Manger.
