This weeks marks the start of our countdown to Christmas! As part of this we have started learning about the Christmas story. Watch the video below and discuss the following questions:
- Who were the main characters in the story?
- What animal did they ride to Bethlehem?
- Where did they have to sleep?
- Why was the new baby so special?
- Who came to visit the baby?
- What 3 gifts did the 3 kings bring for Jesus?
How is this different to where babies are born now? What presents might we give to a baby now? Would kings visit every baby that was born, why not?
Can you complete the missing words?
