The meaning of Christmas for Christians

Today Year 4 recapped on the meaning of Christmas for Christians. Christmas means a lot of different things for lots of people, Christians and non-Christians. In this country many people will take the time to celebrate and be with family in their own way.

We brainstormed what Christmas meant to us:

Turkey
Santa
Presents
Decorations
Mince pies
Elves
Dinner
Family
Giving
Movies
Tree
Snow
……the list was long…almost as long as thier Christmas wish lists!

We then talked about the real meaning of Christmas and it was good to know that there is a great deal of knowledge about the Christmas Story, Jesus’ birth, the Nativity, King Herod and why it is so important in the Christian faith. The class also discussed how Jesus is also a part of the Jewish and Muslim faith- he is recognised in both religions, as well as mentioned in the Muslim holy book, the Koran.

The children then brainstormed words again and added some. Here are a few:

Angels
Manger
Kings
Wise men
Gifts
King Herod
Carols
Advent
Stable
Bethlehem
Star

The children then used their favourite words to create some word art. They used their growing skills of manipulating a program and chose shapes to put their words into.

Have a look at some of their work.

Some of the class finished off with a quiz….do you know any of the answers?
See if you’re right…send us a message and we will let you know!

Let us know if you have some answers…. we are waiting to hear from you.

So, from everyone in Year 4- Merry Christmas to you all.
Stay safe and enjoy the holiday.
