We have been learning that Christians celebrate Christmas because they believe a special baby was born called Jesus who was the son of God. We had two special visitors from Holy Trinity Church called Josh and Elaine who brought lots of things in to show us and told us a bit more about the Christmas Story.

Can you answer some of these questions by commenting below…

Why do Christians think Jesus was so special?

Why did Mary and Joseph have to travel all the way to Bethlehem?

Why couldn’t they travel on aeroplanes?

How do you think Mary might have been feeling?

What could you give to your family that doesn’t cost any money?

    Jesus was special because he is going to change the world forever.

    Mary and Joseph had to go to Bethlehem as they were going to be counted and they were going to have a baby.

    There weren’t any aeroplanes so they went on a donkey.

    Mary was feeling excited about having a baby.

    I can give my family my love and joy.

    Love Florence

    Mary and Joseph had to go to Bethlehem because they were going to have a baby called Jesus. They had to go to where they came from to be counted.
    They couldn’t travel on aeroplanes because there weren’t any vehicles around that long ago. They had to travel on a donkey.
    Mary might have been feeling tired because she needed somewhere to sleep. She might have been feeling very excited about the baby and looking forward to it coming.
    I would give a cuddle to my family because it’s free!

    • Wow Samuel, you’ve remembered everything! You have been listening really well in class.

    • Just so you know, I come from Wandsworth Class, Lark Hall Primary School.
