Sewing Puppets

We have been working hard this week to design and make our Christmas puppets.

We drew the design into our sketch books, we chosen the colour of the fabric we wanted to use and the colour of thread, then we chose which stitch we wanted to use from our practise session. Then we got busy!

We are super proud of our sewing efforts!

Christmas Party/Jumper Day

On Friday, it was a double whammy for us. Party day and Christmas Jumper Day!

Everyone came dressed in their party clothes and/or Christmas jumpers.

We went into the hall and had the snow machine on. It was so much fun and it felt like it was actually snowing inside the hall. The. We played some party games like pass the parcel, musical statues and we had a dancing competition.

Finally it was back to the classroom to tuck into some delicious party food. We ended our special day with some Christmas karaoke!

Christmas Hampers

Some children in Pearl class were asked to complete a very special job. Normally we would invite members of the community into school and provide them with a delicious Christmas lunch and Y2 would sing some of their favourite songs for them. Unfortunately this year, that hasn’t been possible so instead we went to them.

Miss French drove our brand new minibus about the local area. We were the first children in the whole school to have a ride on the minibus. We were very excited.

We delivered some very special hampers and did some social distancing singing. Everyone was just so pleased to see us and listen to our wonderful singing. We were glad that we could make them smile and we look forward to having them back in school very soon.

Please note that no breaking of the bubbles took place during this afternoon.

To say thank you for our special visits, some of the grown ups gave us some chocolate and some biscuits. We are going to save them for our class Christmas party tomorrow and share them with everyone in Pearl class.

Christmas Assembly with Julie Upton

This week we had our annual Christmas Assembly with Julie Upton from St. Swithens church. We held it over Zoom as we currently cannot have assemblies as normal at the minute. It was lovely to hear a story from Julie and learn all about Christmas.

Julie also told us that she was leaving Sheffield after 10 years here to start a new job in Doncaster. We wish her all the very best of luck from Pearl class and we wished her a very merry Christmas!
