This half term in RE, Year 3 have been learning about Advent and have been working towards answering the question “How and why is Advent important to Christians?”

Today they created their own Christian advent calendar using card, glue, colouring pencils and scissors. They coloured in each candle on the Advent Wreath to represent hope, peace, joy and love (remembering that the third candle for joy is pink and not purple), then drew a Christmas picture to be revealed behind each door.

They will then be able to take them home and open each door on each Sunday of Advent as they count down to Christmas!
