We have started to get ready for Advent.
Today we learnt that the word Advent means ‘coming’ and that we are now waiting for the arrival of Christmas day and the birth of Jesus.
We also learnt about the Advent Wreathe and how the Advent candles help us celebrate this special time.
Using our handprints we constructed the circular wreathe and placed each of the five candles around and inside.
We look forward to visiting the church over the next month to see our St Emilies Parish wreath and watching the candles being lit.
We wait patiently for Christmas when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, King of Peace into our world!
We wish everyone a happy Advent season!
