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, followed by a short craft-making session. They then “travelled back in time” to Nazareth to meet Mary.
They were amazed at the appearance of the Angel Gabriel who announced 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, Joseph and one of the wise men. The journey ended in the present time where they learned the meaning of the Christian symbols of Christmas with its message of joy, sorrow and hope.
Thank you to the staff of the Church for organising this event which reminded us about the true meaning of Christmas.
