During Advent, the children from Year 3, have a Jesse tree in their classroom. During our RE lessons we have been thinking about Advent traditions and the meaning of different things. We found out that Jesse Trees are a very old Christmas Tradition and first started in medieval times. They are used to help tell the story of the Bible from creation to the Christmas Story. The name comes from Jesse who was the Father of the great Jewish King David. Each day during Advent we are placing a different symbol on our tree to represent a different Bible story and we are sharing the Bible reading through our class collective worship.
