Kestrel's Advent Assembly

Advent recounts and remembers the events prior to Jesus’ birth. Advent follows the longings of the Israelites, with scriptures full of promises, prophecies and predictions of a Saviour whom God will send.

We started our set of Advent assemblies with Kestrels Class, who gave us a history of Advent and showed us a wreath which the children walked through. One side was decorated for Christmas, and the other side recorded children’s worries relating to the Christmas season on. The children were asked to walk through the wreath and think about the jobs to do with Advent, but also the fun ahead too.
