Hopefully, by now, you will have had the opportunity to watch the children’s wonderful Nativity production. The classroom was full of Christmas activities this week. The children enjoyed reading our version of the Christmas story, which was filled with their photographs. We made paper chains and compared the lengths. We also noticed that some children had created repeating patterns in the chains. Fine motor skills were developed as we made snowflakes. Fred had been shopping online and we took a delivery, which contained parcels labelled with sounds. We guessed what might be inside; some of the parcels had far less exciting contents than the children predicted. Christmas bingo was a hit. The children added one more and one less within ten before marking off their bingo cards. I hope you get chance to play at home during the holiday.
On Friday, the children had the opportunity for a taster session with the Balbir Dance Company. It was exciting to visit our dance studio for the first time and the children particularly enjoyed pretending to eat a ping pong ball! Thank you to Mrs Johnston for arranging the visit for us and to the Balbir Dance Company.
Wishing you all a wonderful and peaceful Christmas. Thank you to the children for all of their hard work and enthusiasm this term and to the parents for all their support. I look forward to seeing you in the new year.
