What is Christmas
The Making of a Christingle

In R.E Year 4 have been trying to answer the question, what is Christmas?
As part of our investigation we learned how to make a Christingle and how this can be used to tell the Christmas story. We then wrote our own instructions for making a Christingle


“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8:12

Writing the instructions
Gather the items needed
Step 1: an orange (the world) with a red ribbon (the blood of Jesus)
Step 2: 4 cocktail sticks with sweets or fruit (fruits of the earth and the 4 seasons)
Step 3: A lighted candle in the centre of the orange
(Christ the Light of the World)
And there you have it: Christingle - Christ Light
