This week, we have been so busy getting ready for Christmas we have been in overdrive.
On Monday, we had our Christmas Party and we even had a special visitor. We danced, played some party games and then went back to the classroom for some party food.
Santa brought us a class game of Jenga to play and a new story book to add to our book collection. The book is called Superworm and it is by one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson. Thank you Santa!
We have made Christmas cards to send to someone special in our families.
We loved making our Christmas calendars with the penguins on. First we had to paint a blue background. Next we had to use a large potato dipped in black paint for the body and then we had to let it dry. If we didn’t, the colours would run into each other. Then we used a smaller potato for the white part of the penguin’s body and used a paintbrush to add on details like eyes, wings, beak and feet. Once everything has dried, we used some silver glittery finger paint to make it look like the penguins were gliding on the smooth, sparkling ice.
We made some snowman puppets as well and had a chance to practise our sewing skills. We are sure that you will agree that our snowmen puppets look brill!
Pearl class would like to wish all of their friends and followers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We will see you all again soon in the New Year! Back to School – Tues 3rd Jan 2017
