What a creative and fun filled week we’ve had this week!
The children have thoroughly enjoyed retelling the story of The Gingerbread Man – there has been some beautiful writing to retell it in their own words, as well as some very enthusiastic puppet shows! Friday was finished off by making our own gingerbread men – fortunately, they didn’t hop out of the oven and we were able to ice them beautifully!
Christmas has started this week – Twinkle the Elf has made an appearance again! He’s caused some mischief, but as all the children have set such a fantastic example for him, he brought a Christmas tree to decorate on Friday. It was a pleasure to see the whole class work as a team to decorate it and hear them discuss where to place ornaments without any support.
The highlight of the week was visiting the garden. It has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland, complete with Santa’s Workshop, a life sized gingerbread house and even a wardrobe to Narnia! We were so excited! Everyone had a wonderful time exploring and playing in the different areas – the excitement was palpable!
We’d love to tell you what else we’ve been up to, but lots of it is a secret – all will be revealed at the end of term when children come home for Christmas. I can tell you we have a class filled with extremely thoughtful children and we’ve been even more proud of them this week (we didn’t think that was possible!)
We look forward to updating you with all of next weeks adventures next Friday!
