As part of P7’s RME curriculum they learn about the Christmas message and its importance to Christians. We visited Stockbridge Parish Church where Reverend John Cowie, Reverend Allison, Alison Franks (mum of Peter P4), Clare Mitchell (parent of Xanthe P7) and Zonya (SU worker) led the workshop.
Primary 7 started with some fun facts and a quiz about Christmas. They created a Christmas picture using coloured mosaic squares.
We then discussed why Christmas is important for Christians, considering the ‘fluff’ and the actual reason Christians celebrate. In groups Primary 7 learned about the Christmas message.
Primary 7 then had some time to reflect on what Christmas means to them as well. There were some very thoughtful responses to some of those questions.
