Welcome to Thrift Class
Finally, we can access the blog again! So, here are the rest of our Christmas photos. Thank you so much to everyone who made all of this possible.
Our new topic is houses and homes and will include the Fire of London. We have several trips planned connected with this, as well as the rearranged trip to Walsingham. - which we can do only because so many people donated to our trip fund.
Instead of a Christingle Service in Titchwell Church, because of Covid, we held our own in school
The children can all tell you what the symbols mean
When we had finished, we turned the lights out, lit our candles and sang two songs. It was magical. Everyone working together, all calm, so pretty and spiritual.
We made our own Nativity sets.
Father Christmas came and gave us presents - which was very exciting
Opening our presents
As you can see, enjoyed by all!
And Father Christmas left another present - pencils with our names on
We certainly wore someone out!!
opening all our Christmas cards
7th December -we have had a busy time recently!
Our trip to Walsingham had to be cancelled at the last minute due to illness at Walsingham. Revd Kirsty saved the day!
We explored all of Rev Kirsty's Nativity sets then used them to decorate the church
We talked about all the characters
Preparing the church - we are now in Advent so the colour changes to purple
Revd Kirsty even provided warm drinks and a snack
We learnt about Christingles and what they mean
Then we had a Christingle Drive!
Mrs Bocking won!!
Then Revd Kirsty told us about the Jesse Tree and the stories. We soon discovered it was all about God's plan and Jesus coming
We finished with a prayer
Back in school we made salt dough decorations and talked about how our shapes (star etc) fitted in the Nativity story
Then we made candle holders because Jesus was the Light of The World
Our candle looked lovely in Collective worship. We turned the lights off and it really shone out in the dark
When our salt dough was cooked, we decorated them
We went to Holkham. Our outdoor advent calendar said hug a tree, so we did. We also saw the deer
We got really close
All we could say was "wow!"
Then we made our own decorations
The rooms are all amazing
We saw Father Christmas and he talked to us and then said he had a present for us that would help us save the planet
Marley woke Santa up - he did it by poking him to see if he was real! He was!
We loved the dog room - there were paw prints - and a tail up the chimney and the dogs had chewed the presents
The antler tree
There was just so much to see
Holkham Hall even had a chapel in their house, with a Nativity set
We recognised all the characters from our play
We went in the secret passages
Our special present was a tree to grow - and even the teachers got one
It was an amazing day
Thank you everyone
Thank you to everyone who gave us money so we could go. It was a very special day
