Jubilation!

James Wolfe Primary School, Royal Hill Campus

Randall Place, Greenwich, SE10 8RZ

As a school, we decided the theme of jubilation incorporated the best parts of a child’s Christmas. Bringing back traditional symbolism associated with the festive period whilst also capturing the children’s excitement during the season that is upon us. We are also embedding the spirit of giving and helping one another with the children.

The window will be ready by 3 p.m. on 12 December. The children will be singing Christmas carols to open the window.

Joy

This colourful display of lanterns decorating the plum tree describes our feelings as we move through the anticipation of Advent to the joy all around the world as we celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas

Joy to the world! The Lord is come.

Let earth receive her king!

Let every heart, prepare him room,

And heaven and nature sing.

The window is best viewed at night.

The window will be ready by 4 p.m. on 3 December.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

213 Greenwich High Road

Greenwich, SE10 8NB

The Christmas tree is one of the most enduring and iconic images of Christmas.

It is believed that the preacher Martin Luther was the first person to bring a Christmas tree into a home in the way we know it today. One night before Christmas, he was walking through the forest and saw stars shining through the tree branches. He went home and told his children how beautiful it was and how it reminded him of Jesus, who left the stars of heaven to come to earth at Christmas.

Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III, erected the first known Christmas tree in England in 1800 at the Queen’s Lodge, Windsor. Prince Albert, who is wrongly credited with introducing the Christmas tree to this country, certainly contributed to its popularity after a illustration of the tree in Windsor Castle was featured in 1848 in the Illustrated London News. Its popularity grew from that time.

 

We wish you a very happy Christmas (featuring your own Christmas tree, of course) and a joyful 2018 for all.

The window is best photographed during the day, but can be viewed at any time.

The window will be ready by 4 p.m. on 2 December.
