Class Caribbean spent a large portion of last week 'Rockin' around the Christmas tree'. As a class we discussed the history of christmas trees and how we came to decorate them so here are some interesting facts for you...

  • In 1848 the Illustrated London News published a drawing of the royal family celebrating around a decorated Christmas tree, a tradition that was reminiscent of Prince Albert's childhood in Germany.
  • Soon every home in Britain had a tree bedecked with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts.


Class Caribbean I wonder if you can find out what different ornaments and decorations might represent?
