In assembly this morning we learnt all about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is celebrated by families having special meals together and exchanging gifts. Candles are lit to symbolise the presence of God. We noticed that light and candles are used in many religions as a symbol of hope or God.
We marked the first week of Advent by lighting the first candle on our special advent wreath that Reverend Such introduced with us last week. Our wreath was created by Mrs Watts with holly from her garden.
