Year 2 RE - Advent
We learnt about the time of Advent and what it is:
We learnt that Jesus is the Light of the World and that he brings light to save us from darkness. We used the Bible to find quotes that talked about light and darkness, and we put them together into a class drama, where some of us called out the quotes and everyone else performed actions to go with the meaning of the words. We found pictures and quotes on the internet to make a Power Point to go with our drama, and we performed it to the rest of the school and our parents, as part of our class assembly.

We learnt that the special colour at this time of year is purple. We also learnt about the Advent Wreath and how it helps us countdown to Jesus’ coming at Christmas. We learnt about the symbolism of the different elements and we made a Powerpoint to share with the rest of the school and with our parents:
We thought about the messages of Advent and about this half term’s values (hopeful and faith-filled) and wrote prayers:
We thought about how we could be like little lights of Jesus and follow his example of loving our neighbours during this special season. We helped Mrs Barker to pack shoe boxes for Teams4U. We decorated a box each, packed it with toys, sweets, toothpaste, a tooth brush, soap, pencils and paper, and made Christmas cards to put in each box.
Mrs Barker and some of the Values Council took them to the warehouse, along with all the other boxes that families had sent in. In the end we sent 201 shoe boxes!
We thought about the life history of a shoe box and made a Puppet Pals animation of it, making all the puppets and backgrounds ourselves and also being the voice of the shoe box:
