Nativity acrostic poem

Never forget what happened

All those years ago

The way in which Jesus came

Into the world

Very small

In Bethlehem

Two thousand years later

You celebrate-it’s Christmas

 

Now you try, you could use any word or even have a go and write one using the letters that are above: Nativity.

Pause for Thought

Sometimes after Christmas, when it’s the start of a new year, people think about the year ahead and make new year’s resolutions. People might say they will take more exercise or keep their room tidy but often within a few weeks they forget and they go back to their old ways. Perhaps you could write something that you will do on a piece of card, decorate it and put it in your room or somewhere where you will see it each day and be reminded of it. Perhaps your new year’s resolution will last longer.
