On December 4th, we welcomed volunteers from St Matthews Church for a whole-school Christingle celebration. Each volunteer shared the Christingle with a pair of year-group classes, explaining the importance of the symbols and why Christians make a Christingle at this time of year.
The children then made their own Christingle to take home and share what they had learned with their family.
Thank you very much to Mrs Fewtrell for organising things at Church and to all the volunteers who made it such a wonderful afternoon:
The Christingle was supported by two generous local supermarkets. Thank you to Morrisons on Lincoln Road and Sainsbury's on Oxney Road for their very kind donations. They get a huge amount of requests for help, so we are incredibly grateful to have been chosen to receive the donations.
It was a fantastic way to start our Christmas celebrations at Eye CE Primary School.
Ask your children to tell you about their Christingle. You could even make another at home together!
