Advent Assembly by Woodpaeckers

The next advent assembly was from Woodpeckers Class. This assembly focussed on the birth of Jesus and the fact that he was homeless when he was born. The children re-told the nativity story and acted some sections out too. The wreath was decorated to show the struggles people all over the world face, including homelessness and famine. In the assembly, children were invited (if they wished to), to write a prayer on a slip of yellow paper and this became the ‘straw’ in the manger where Jesus lay.
