Script
1. Good morning.
We have been learning about Preparations.
We are learning about Advent traditions which help us to prepare for Christmas.
Here are some of our favourite Advent traditions.

2. My favourite Advent tradition is opening the doors on my Advent calendar, because I like the chocolates inside.
My second favourite tradition is buying my friends presents.
I like their faces when I give them a present.
My third favourite tradition is singing carols, because I like carols.

3. I like the Christmas tree in our class, because it is colourful.
I like the decorations and computer pictures in our class, because they're pretty and colourful.
I like the crib as well, because it reminds me of Jesus.
I also like the Advent candle in our class.

4. One of my favourite Advent traditions is setting up the crib, because it reminds me of Jesus being born.
Another one of my favourite traditions is the Christmas tree, because the green means God without beginning or end - and it points up to heaven as well.
I also love Christmas cards, because receiving a card makes me feel happy.
My friend also made a Christingle at his school and explained what the different parts of it mean.  Click for an explanation.

Christingles


5. Most of the things we have just mentioned we either give to other people or we share with other people.
It is important to remember that we do this as a way of celebrating Jesus's birthday.
We can't give Jesus cards, or presents or candles for his birthday, so we give them to other people.
