We are now officially in the run down to the Christmas season. We have lots of activities both this week and next! We watched a beautiful nativity performed by Year 1 and year 2 earlier in the week just reminding us of the true message of Christmas. The choir participated in the Medway Schools carol service in Rochester Cathedral yesterday which is now becoming a bit of a tradition here at St Michael’s , as is the choir singing to the residents at Acorn Residential Home which they will be doing next week– singing carols and festive tunes. Yesterday we watched Cinderella performed by a theatre company in our own hall– the children thoroughly enjoyed this! Next week we have the whole school Advent mass and the Nursery and Reception class performing their nativity (Wednesday) Christmas dinner for all (Thursday), Christmas jumper day, and the Christmas fair (Friday)
We lit the first candle on the advent wreath on Monday to remind us that though waiting for Christmas is fun and exciting, preparing with gift shopping, decorations etc we are actually all preparing for the coming of Jesus in our hearts. Next Monday we will hear about the Jesse Tree and the symbolism of this in Advent– there is a Jesse tree display in the front entrance.
Keep an eye out for dates etc of events coming up through Twitter, our school Facebook page and ParentPay.
Have a lovely weekend– happy shopping!!!
