Happy New Year

It has been a very different Christmas this year but I hope you have been able to celebrate with your family and perhaps start some new traditions.

This week the Church celebrates the Epiphany. It is when we remember the journey of the Magi or Wise Men to see Jesus. There is some more information about Epiphany and how it is celebrated around the world on the CBBC website here

You might remember that last year Lizzie gave us all a piece of chalk to chalk a blessing on our front doors. You might like to do this this year.

Here are a few other ideas that you might like to have a go at linked to Epiphany.

1. Make some star biscuits, gingerbread or shortbread or any other biscuit.

2. Make a crown out of paper or card. You could decorate it with any shiny sweet wrappers you might have.

3. Think about how the Magi brought gifts. You might like to think about having a look for things to give to charity or a food bank.

4. There is a colouring sheet, crossword and wordsearch

5. Older children might like to find out about the gifts that the Magi brought to Jesus.
