What a fun packed Christmas week we have had.
Indoors, Holly and Jolly have been up to their usual mischief by hiding things around the cabin - what fun we have had trying to find them first thing in the morning. We have enjoyed practising our Christmas songs and dances for a very special show (see below). We have been recreating the Christmas story with our Small World props - I wonder if you can remember the names of any of the characters in the story so far? Mrs Lewis and Mrs Allen have been making Christmas hats for most of you ready to wear today for our Christmas lunch. It was delicious - thank you very much Mrs Barker and Mr Hopkins!
Outdoors, Mrs Allen has gone Christmas tree crazy and has shown you lots of ways to create them using outdoor equipment. You started off by sorting different lengths of sticks and tied them together with rope to create the tree shape and added the Forest decorations afterwards. On Wednesday you all enjoyed hammering nails into a wooden frame and used wool to wrap around to create another tree shape. You have even had a go at making trees out of pine cones, glue and glitter - please do not add glitter to your tree at home in the same way!
Next week the whole school will be performing their Christmas shows down at Blackwell Church and we will be performing ours. Our Christmas show will be in the school hall on Friday 20th December at 2.30pm. Please bring all your family and friends and come and enjoy watching the children show off their learning so far with a Christmas twist! If you child does not attend on a Friday, please drop them at the cabin between 2-2.15pm and head on down to the hall to find your seat. Could we request they come in dressed in Christmassy clothes and bring in a Christmas cuddly toy/teddy to join the show.
We hope to see you all their next Friday to help us enjoy and celebrate our last afternoon of what has been a long term for both the children and the adults.
Mrs Mander, Mrs Allen, Mrs Franklin, Mrs Lewis, Mrs Barrett and Mrs Flynn
