The children's participation of The Christmas Posada
The children from the Infant school had the wonderful opportunity to take part in the passing of The Christmas Posada through our Community. The Christmas Posada refers to an 'inn' or 'shelter' in Spanish and it represents the bible story of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem and their search for a place to stay.
The Posada box held knitted dolls of Mary and Joseph and the children got to have a look and talk about the tradition as well as the journey Mary and Joseph made. The Posada came from one of the Bilton Methodist Church's and we passed it onto Woodfield Primary School.
