That First Christmas

We have been spending a lot of our time learning about the Christmas story and what exactly happened all those years ago. We all knew that Christmas is when we remember when Jesus was born but we didn't know about all the other amazing things that happened. First we learnt that Angel Gabriel visited Mary and told her the exciting news. Then we heard how she rushed to tell her cousin Elizabeth what had happened. Finally we learnt about how the shepherds heard the good news, one of our favourite parts was when the sky was filled with angels! At each point, we used playdough models to help us retell what had happened and to help us describe how all these people would have felt and why. Look carefully at our creations, can you see which part of the story they are about?
