Is the Christmas story true?
We started our investigation by looking at how we interpret events in different ways, seeing events from different perspectives. Focussing on the Christmas story, we created a Nativity tableau whilst three class members narrated a traditional Nativity story. Digging deeper, we studied the Nativity narrative in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, analysing the differences and asking which story is true? We discussed what 'true' means and whether we are able to find meaning in stories that are not true. Following on from this we learned about what the Christmas story means to Christians, using the song 'Mary's Boy Child' to stimulate our ideas. Finally, we selected a creative way to respond to all that we had learned throughout the day, as can be seen from the variety of worked recorded below.
