St Andrew's Day
Year five led the assembly about St Andrew – we found out lots about Scotland, the capital city, which foods come from Scotland and the interesting places to visit in Scotland. We discovered that a teacher has climbed Ben Nevis - can you remember which one?
Christians believe that a saint is a holy person, a patron saint is supposed to speak to God on a nation's behalf.
St Andrew was one of Jesus' followers and he went around the Middle East spreading the word of Christ and he was visited by an angel and he was told to spread the word of Christ as far as he could. He was caught up in a storm and landed at a place in Scotland called St Andrews.
