In Year 5's current RE topic, we have been learning about the symbolism and meaning behind the advent wreath. On the first day of Advent, Year 5 worked with Mary from the parish to create a real advent wreath, which will be used during school assembly's and liturgy's.  Using plants from the local area, the children all took part in adding something to the wreath- the candles, holly, ivy and ferns- and it looks fantastic as  you can see.
