RE visitors…

We were very lucky this week to welcome two visitors to talk about Christianity. We have been learning about different festivals of light and making comparisons between them. This week we discussed festivals of light and in our homework created questions to ask visitors about the Christian festival of light: Christmas. Many thanks to Reverend Mckee and Mrs Ruaux for taking time to come and answer lots of questions – some of which were quite tricky!!
