Year 2 were invited to the New Malden Baptist Church for an interactive performance of the Nativity called the “Christmas Journey”. On arrival, they were offered a light snack of biscuits and a drink after which children travelled back in time to Nazareth to meet Mary.
They saw the Angel Gabriel announce that Mary had been chosen to have a special baby whom she and her husband, Joseph, should call Jesus because he was God’s son. Children also met a shepherd, the baby Jesus and Joseph and talked to one of the wise men. They learned something of the Christian symbols of Christmas with its message of joy, sorrow and hope. The final activity was a craft-making session.
Thank you to the staff of the Church for organising this event which reminded us about the true meaning of Christmas.
