With Christmas only a matter of days away and excitement mounting, Lower and Upper One attended the Follow the Star workshop at Norwich Cathedral.
As the children arrived at Norwich Cathedral, they had discussions to help them learn about advent and understand why this time of year is important to Christians.
However, the story really came alive for them when they made their own manger and added the important characters; Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. They also had a chance to meet characters from the Christmas story located around the beautiful Cathedral to help them learn and remember the true meaning of Christmas for Christians.
The whole workshop was a fantastic way to tell the nativity story and the children were captivated.
