Learning that Advent isn’t just about chocolate calendars

This week we learnt about how the period of Advent is very important in the Christian Church and signifies the start of the Christmas countdown. The children were surprised to learn that the symbol for advent wasn’t the chocolate calendars but the Advent wreath. They enjoyed making their own Advent wreath and learning about what each candle represents and the significance of each part of the wreath.
