πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„Christmas has arrived at BB.
On Monday night the Christmas elves visited school to sprinkle a little bit of magic.

We also lit the 1st candle on our brand new advent wreath for the 1st Sunday in advent. The wreath was bought with a very generous donation given to school by a member of our BB community. Thank you so much. We think you’ll agree it looks fantastic.

πŸ•― Advent is the season of preparation and expectation as we prepare for the Birth of Jesus.
πŸ•―The 1st advent candle represents the Patriarchs and the message of hope told to Abraham.

Our new Christmas display also has pride of place in the hall with some fantastic artwork created by year 6.πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
