Everything has been going so fast! It’s the last week of the Autumn term and looking back on our Blog, we can see how busy we have all been!

This week we got the privilege of seeing the Key-Stage 2 production which we really enjoyed!

This week we have been working hard as Santa’s little helpers, designing, wrapping and fixing the presents for Christmas day!
We have even been giving gifts to each other and  talking about how gifts make us feel when we give and receive them.

Here we are sporting our PE kits and headbands that we made especially for our class production. We were so proud to sing to our parents on the big stage!

This week we have also been exploring ice. We have been talking about how ice freezes, and why it melts. We have been using our senses to describe how it feels and talking about the ice might be melting when we hold it in our hands.

Why do you think ice melts when you hold it?

What is ice made from?

This week we have also been creating a variety of different decorations, from snow-cone men, to glittery Christmas trees! We have even been making bead decorations that look like candy canes!

We have also spent a lot of time this week making and writing out Christmas cards for our family and friends. Here a few of the designs we have made.

Have you been given any Christmas cards? Who were they from?

We hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We have had a very busy week again this week with the run up to the Christmas Bazaar and Production. We have been making baubles and learning our lovely star song for the Christmas production and we are very excited about sharing this with our parents!

We have had a gym in our class this week! We’ve all enjoyed finding out how some of the equipment works. We have been counting how many steps we have been doing, timing how long it takes to do a certain exercise, and we have been using weights to make our muscles big and strong! We’ve even been doing press ups! We love being on the soft mat too! We have even been talking about the importance of a balanced diet and exercise and the effect that exercise has on our bodies.

This week we have also been exploring colours and how they mix. We have been using salt and food colouring to explore what happens as we add the colour to the salt, bit-by-bit. We have loved exploring the texture of the salt with our hands. It felt a little bit like sand.

We have also used paint and food colouring to see what happens when the two colours meet in the middle as they are absorbed by some tissue paper. We were very interested to see what was happening.

As usual there is so much writing happening in the class all the time! We are always practising writing out new sounds, and we love drawing too! We like to draw superheroes pictures of monsters and practise writing our names!
