The Essence of Christmas - What is Christmas really all about?
In Collective Worship, we thought about what the essence of Christmas is. We thought about the two definitions of essence - 'a liquid that provides a scent of taste' and 'the most important aspect of something' and focused on the latter. We looked at things that are linked to Christmas - Christmas decorations, presents and mince pies - and asked ourselves 'Are these the essence (meaning) of Christmas?'
Following on from thinking about the 'essence' of Christmas, each class thought about their hopes and wishes for Christmas and beyond and made baubles for our Values 'Christmas' Tree.
