As Form 4 move on from exam week and start thinking about Christmas, we have begun to study Christmas journeys in Religious Education, beginning with finding out about Bethlehem. We learned that Bethlehem lay on an ancient trading route, was the birthplace of King David, and was even mentioned in the book of Genesis in the Bible. We discovered that modern Bethlehem is a place of pilgrimage and many Christians visit the Church of the Nativity, which was built over the cave where Jesus was believed to have been born. They were fascinated to find that this ancient town is such a busy and important place today.
