Autumn 2- Christmas: Why do we give and receive gifts?

This half term we will be exploring:

What is a gift?

Does a gift always have to be an object?

Introduce the idea that gifts can also be kind and thoughtful actions – such as helping a friend, giving someone a lift, mending something for a neighbour.

Discuss the children’s experiences of receiving gifts. How does it feel when you receive a gift?

Follow on by discussing what sort of gift was Jesus?

Did God send him wrapped up in a gift box?  Why not?


Poem by Christina Rosetti:-

What can I give Him

- Poor as I am!

If I were a shepherd

- I would bring a lamb.

If I were a wise man

- I would do my part.

Yet what I can I give Him

- Give my heart.
