Year 1 children have been learning about special people in their RE topic and Mrs Robinson shared with them the story of Ruth and Simeon.
A visit to the Temple Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the temple.
He was their baby boy and they wanted to thank God for him.
At the temple they met Simeon and Anna.
They were both old, and had been going to the temple to pray for many years.
They were very happy to see Jesus and thanked God for him.
(based on Luke 2:23-40)
The children retold the story in small groups using puppets which helped them to remember the story in their writing.
