On Wednesday the 25th November, the year 1 children at St Augustine’s school were on retreat, getting ready and preparing their hearts for the season of Advent!
We had a lovely day thinking about Advent and what we are waiting and preparing for.
We played games to practice ‘waiting’ – like musical statues and made watches to remind us that waiting can be tough but it is also exciting as well. Especially when you are waiting for Jesus birth!
We also made candles to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world and ended the day with a lovely meditation and prayer.
