In 2023 we had two whole school Christmas Assemblies. Our first looked  2022 assembly looked at counting down to advent and Christmas foods enjoyed this time of year. In a Votes for school style assembly, we asked our children about whether they feel we eat too much food at Christmas!

Our second Christmas assembly focused on the Christmas as both a religious and secular festival. We had some fun with some Christmas songs and also listened to a Christmas poem explaining Christian beliefs behind the Nativity story. We also looked at universal themes of kindness and goodwill to all at this time of year.

Our Christmas Assembly 2022 had a guest speaker - Father Andrew from ST Saviours who shared the Christmas story and some Christmas traditions with the children with their origins.



Our Christmas Assembly 2021 looked at the Nativity Story and some of the songs we sing at Christmas time – popular and carols. We recognised that this festival is both secular and Christian and encouraged the children to look for ways to show kindness and bring joy to others which is a central theme of Christmas.



Our Assembly on Wednesday 3rd December 2020 linked to Advent and children explored the origins of advent. They also were also given challenge below to think about on the lead up to Christmas this year.



Our Assembly on 9th December 2020 was linked to the story the birth of Jesus and included a quiz with interesting nativity facts. We looked at some of the key  values of Christmas for both Christians and within the wider festival of Christmas, concluding that it is a time of giving, kindness and a season for showing love and good will to others.


Our Assembly reflection and challenge invited our children to think about acts of love or kindness they may be able to show in school and at home this Christmas time.
