First and Second Class Assembly

We had assembly for first and second classes this week.

Mr Reidy
There are many wonderful things about Christmas. There are the Christmas trees; there are Christmas lights, wonderful carols, gifts, etc. However, what is most important about Christmas is Jesus; the greatest gift of all. If you received a gift it would be sad if you only enjoyed the paper, the bow and the ribbon and forgot the present inside. At Christmas it would be even worse if you enjoyed the hymns, the lights and the songs and forgot about Jesus! This Christmas let’s remember that Jesus is the greatest gift of all. He was born in a manger many years ago and he is alive today. Although we can’t see him right now we know he is the greatest King of all and that he loves us and leads us into the wonderful life of God. We don’t want to forget that. Help us to enjoy the season of Christmas but also to remember Jesus at this very special time.

We watched a Christmas video about the Nativity.

Children from Ms Downes Room 18 read an acrostic Christmas poem for us.
C – is for the Christ child born upon this day
H – is for the holly to make our mantle gay.
R – is for red ribbon to wrap the parcels tight
I – is for the icicles on the cold winter night.
S – is for dear Santa Please leave him a treat
T – is for the turkey that is so good to eat.
M – is for the manger where Baby Jesus lay,
A – is for the angels on that first Christmas Day.
S – is for the stockings hanging in a row with candy canes out of the top
Merry Christmas Everyone !!!
