Some more Christmas elves for the Children’s University challenge! Both girls have earned themselves a CU credit! Excellent job girls!
Miss French came down with a special surprise for some of us. Anyone who had 100% attendance for the Autumn Term was given a certificate and could choose a prize from the trolley. There were 17 of us in total who all got a certificate and a prize. Well done to everyone! Will you win for the Spring Term?
This week, Miss Hall set a maths challenge on her maths blog. The children in Pearl class wanted to challenge themselves and have a go!
The challenge was to:
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!
You might remember last week, we set up an experiment to see which piece of bread would be the mouldiest. We left the bread for a week in a sealed bag and the results are in…
The winner of the mouldiest piece of bread was dirty hands!
We have learnt the importance of washing our hands after we go to the toilet, before we have something to eat and if we sneeze or cough into our hands. We don’t want the germs to get into our bodies and make us poorly. We have seen first hand how germs can be transferred and can make us poorly.
On Friday, it was a double whammy for us. Party day and Christmas Jumper Day!
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!
Congratulations to our winners for the class awards. We are super proud of you!
We’ve had an email from a child in Pearl Class who has been busy making her Christmas Elves at home. Millie has named them Billie and Bonnie and we think that they are just fantastic. Well done on earning yourself a CU credit!
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.
We’ve had a busy day in Pearl Class today. We have been learning how to sew. Miss Varley showed us how to do two different kinds of stitch to make sure that our fabric stayed together. They were the running stitch and the overstitch. We had pre holed templates to have a go with. Later in the day, we designed our own Christmas puppets to be made next week. Make sure you come back to have a look at our finished puppets!
