We talked about Advent in assemblies this week. Find out more and try a quiz HERE. We may open the first window on our Advent calendars on December 1st but Advent actually starts on the Sunday nearest to November 30th. So in 2021, it started on Sunday 28 November and will run until Friday 24 December.

We talked about our Lawford Mead Christmas traditions (including Christmas jumper and dinner day, singing The Twelve Days of Christmas together AND our very special, knitted Advent calendar.

It was lovely to hear the children’s family traditions and what is most special to them at this time of year. What was very clear from the children’s contributions was the importance and joy of being with family. We hope that won’t be so difficult this year but we are thankful for the video call technology that allowed us to see loved ones last year.

What does Christmas mean to you? What traditions are you looking forward to this year? Leave a comment below.

    In Redwood, we discussed our traditions:
    one of us puts our star on the tree on Christmas day, in Poland we get a little gift from Santa on the 6th December, we do our advent calendars every day, Christmas dinner with our families and we put out food for the reindeer on Christmas eve
