After what seemed like a very long time up to half term, now that we’re back the weeks seem to be racing by and Christmas is approaching fast!
Class 2 have been busy since the holiday making pretend fireworks with shiny and coloured paper and streamers and our small world has been a shredded paper bonfire with magnetic numbers to rescue using magnets. This has produced lots of lovely comments, such as ‘don’t touch the fire, it’s hot!’ but also hopefully an understanding of safety for the children.
We will be moving on from our work on Autumn, where we have made a fabulous autumn coloured tree more into Winter with exploratory play using ice. Of course, we couldn’t not include Frozen in this, so we will have ice castles along with small world figures of Elsa, Ana and all the gang!
The most recent highlight in class was our visit from Pudsey bear! The children were all delighted to meet Pudsey and all got the opportunity to get up close to say hello! We then enjoyed a fun filled fund-raising day a few days later.
As December approaches we will, of course be very busy making festive decorations and cards and lots of other things ready for Christmas. We are looking forward to you joining us for our Lower School Nativity on Monday 18th December at 10am.
