Class 8AL staged a timely school assembly themed around Christmas Advent calendars. The pupils introduced the Countdown to Christmas assembly by explaining the history of Advent. They explained how they were first introduced in Germany in the 1880’s.
Our assembly showed some of the modern day Advent calendars that are available. We spoke about the chocolate treats that you can find behind the door for each day during December.
Class 8AL then presented a short Christmas quiz for friends. The correct answers were rewarded with a treat from an Advent calendar. We finished by reminding everyone to start their Advent calendars on 1st December.
