With the start of Advent, an Advent Prayer Space came to West Pennard CE School.

Dorothy Robinson, Class 1 teacher said, "This was an opportunity for our school community to spend time out from the classroom to reflect, pause and pray as they wished. There were various activities to inspire us to think a little deeper about this wonderful time of year. We explored what it was like for Mary and Joseph and how their story still impacts ours. Activities included writing down our hopes and dreams for 2022, wondering about what ‘no room’ looks like today, thinking about those we will not see for whatever reason at Christmas, and engaging with Jesus the Light of the World who came so that no one should feel hopeless however ‘dark’ their situation. Everyone took away glow in the dark pebbles to remind them of this. As always in these termly events, the children were really enthusiastic and their responses, deeply humbling."
