First and Second Class December Assembly

We started off assembly by singing Away in a Manger together.

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 of the story of baby Jesus.

Room 18 did an acrostic Christmas poem for us.
C – is for the Christ child born upon this day
