Being Thankful- We discussed who the ‘special people’ in our lives and what makes them special. We thought about how important our family and wider community was to us. We shared how it is important to talk to their special people about things that are troubling them. We ended our lesson by remembering that our relationship with God is the most special of all.

The Nativity- We retold the story of the birth of Jesus Christ orally and we wrote it down using pictures to help us sequence events correctly. We then acted out the Nativity for our mums and dads in our amazing performance ' The Big Little Nativity'.
