Advent Wow Day - 2/12/19
A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD— and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.’
The pupils of Leyland St James' welcomed in the season of Advent by taking part in a very special 'Advent Wow Day'. Each year group spent time in each class, learning a variety of important messages linked to Advent.
Activities included: Identifying the symbols of the Advent Wreath; decorating the outdoor prayer area; writing reflective prayers as well as many more meaningful craft activities.
Here is a selection of pictures from our very special morning:
