This week we have been reading the Nativity story.
We have retold the Nativity story using small world figures.
We have been learning that Christians believe that baby Jesus was born at Christmas.
We have been busy learning our Christmas songs for our performance on Tuesday. We hope you'll come and see us.
We made baubles for our Class Christmas tree using characters from the Nativity story to help us remember what happened and who was there.
We have also been thinking about cold and arctic weather. We used the penguins and polar bears in the 'snow' and thought about how it feels and what it would be like to live somewhere freezing cold.
We have been making snowflakes to decorate our classroom for the school fair on Saturday. We practised our cutting skills to make our snowflakes.
We have practised our fine motor skills by making Christmas stars and decorating them in different ways.
We looked at patterns this week, using movements, colours and voices. We thought patterns were a bit like taking turns - first one then the other.
At home you could try making patterns of your own with colours, sounds or movements.
Next week we will be continuing our Christmas theme by thinking about Santa Claus and using this as a focus for our learning.
We will be having a class party on the morning of Monday 18th December. There will be a letter coming home to confirm details about this.
