UK Christmas preparations at school

We are a school in South London. At the moment we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas. First of all we will celebrate Advent. At the beginning of December we will make a big advent calendar in the school hall. As we open the windows of our calendar we will see images of the Christmas story. We will make an advent wreath and light a candle each week during assembly and say some prayers and hear the Christmas story to help us to prepare for Christmas.

At the moment our Year 1 and 2 children (aged 5-7 years) are preparing for a Christmas Nativity. Some of our older children (7-11 years) are preparing for a Christmas concert and our junior children will have a carol service in our parish Church (ours is a Catholic School). I will post some pictures of this year’s celebrations when I have them.

We will send you some pictures and news of our celebrations over the next few weeks. At the moment we are preparing some information for you about our Christmas celebrations and traditions which we will send you, as well as Christmas music and cards.
