As part of their RE work on Christianity, we welcomed Sarah Mullen from St Benedict-Biscop church into school today to teach the Year 1 children about the significance of the Christingle service. Each child was presented with an orange, a red ribbon, a candle, four cocktail sticks and some dried fruit. They learnt that:

  • The orange symbolises the world.
  • The red ribbon shows God's love for the world and the blood of Jesus.
  • The sweets/dried fruit represent God's creations.
  • The four cocktail sticks can represent either the four seasons or the four corners of the world.
  • The candle represents Jesus being the light of the world, bringing hope to those in darkness.
