In RE this half term, Year 6 have been trying to find an answer to the Big Question:
How do Christians advertise Christmas to show what Christmas means today?
To be able to answer this question the children:
*Have explored the difference between secular and religious views of Christmas through watching advertisements for Christmas, looking at Christmas cards and song lyrics.
*Have analysed the meaning the different Gospel accounts give to Christmas?
*Looked at St Mary’s church and how Christmas is celebrated and advertised.
*Decided in groups what is needed in an advertisement for it to be effective in conveying the central Christian beliefs of Christmas?
*The children spent the last week of term planning, performing and editing their own adverts advertising the true meaning of Christmas.
Please take a look and discover the true meaning of Christmas…
