Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Christmas is coming!

Year 1 have been embracing the festive spirit this week! 

Not only have we been hard at work practising for our school Christmas nativity (which has involved plenty of hymn practise!) but we have also been busy with our Christmas creations!

We have made Christmas cards using our thumb and finger prints to create robins sitting on a branch.   We used pieces of card to create the leaves and the legs and tails of the robins.

Our next activity involved painting a paper plate green to create a Christmas tree.  We weaved ribbon in and out of the sections of plate to create the tinsel and decorated it with pompoms and pleanty of sparkles!  We have also decorated a clay tree, star or robin which we used cutters or our hand outlines to make and hang on our Christmas trees.






Some of us made stockings as well but whilst doing so, Mrs Rushen ended up spilling a pile of glitter all over herself!  She was covered all over... she had sparkly legs, shoes and even a sparkly bottom!

Clumsy Mrs Rushen!







Merlins had another Christmas treat from Mrs Rushen as we made mini biscuit and raisin Christmas puddings.  We put some melted white chocolate on top and used a cutter for some holly leaves and berries.  They were delicious!

We are very proud of all of our creations this week and cannot wait to show you them and decorate our houses with them this Christmas!

    We certainly have had a lot of Christmas joy this week especially with those cheeky elves who get up to mischief every morning! I hope the children enjoyed making and baking this week as much as Miss Read and myself. Merlin class as always make coming to school so worthwhile. Happy Christmas little ones xxx Christmas hugs to you all, Mrs Rushen xx
