After looking at a piece of artwork entitled 'The Big Frieze' each class has taken an aspect of the big frieze and created their own artwork based on this part of the Bible. We have put all the different work together to create our own 'Big Frieze' and we are delighted with the result.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we were really excited to take part in a Posada once more. The Posada is a Latin American tradition. In the days leading up to Christmas, families in the local community would be asked to host a statue of Mary and Joseph as they journeyed around the community, reflecting the journey undertaken by Mary and Joseph on their way to Bethlehem. On Christmas Eve Night, the statues of Mary and Joseph would be received back into church in preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
Each class was given their own knitted Mary and Joseph and each child in the class were given the opportunity to take Mary and Joseph home for the night. Each Posada pack came with a book telling the story of the first Christmas, a diary in which the children wrote down what Mary and Joseph got up to on their stay over and a game for them to enjoy with their families.
The local community were then invited to St John’s in the Hall on Christmas Eve Night where the Posada journey was shown and Mary and Joseph were welcomed into church. This was a special Christingle and Crib service, a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas.
