St John's Church

On Friday 9th December, Year 2 visited St John's Church in Darlington to take part in a Christmas journey.  They listened to the story of the Creation and loved the visual props used, as each day was created. The children thought about what would happen to the world if they didn't take good care of it and then went on a journey back in time.  

The children travelled back in time, more than 2000 years ago.  They met Mary, making bread in her kitchen.  They heard the news, sent by God to Mary by angel Gabriel. They then continued their journey, thinking about what it would have been like to be a shepherd and a wise man receiving the news that a baby king had been born in a stable in Bethlehem.

They listened to the news that God had sent baby Jesus to put right, the wrongs of the world and the people in it.
