It’s Nearly Christmas!

For the last three weeks we have been performing our Nativity play, decorating the classroom and our tree! Christmas is almost here! The lonely scarecrow has turned into a very jolly snowman and we have written some excellent poems in teams about snowman and winter. Amazingly, he now has a smile on his face! Alongside all this we have told the story of Jesus’ birth in 3 parts from Angel Gabriel’s visit to the visit by the shepherds. There are some brilliant illustrations in this work as well as some thoughtful writing.
We have been busy with Miss Puxley creating paintings in the style of Georgia O’Keefe and with the help of Rosa’s Granny we have experimented with paints. We have looked back at toys from the past and compared the materials used now and then. More interestingly we have thought about the difference in technology now and the safety regulations! Does anyone remember when teddy bear eyes were attached by metal spikes? Our homework is to find out about parents’ and grandparents’ favourite toys. Are any the same as now?
Sadly, our fairytale topic will soon be over and we will be launching into our next topic! Dinosaurs!
A busy week next week to finish off and make cards. A happy and relaxing Christmas to everyone from Cober Class.IMG_4190.JPGIMG_4138.JPGIMG_4144.JPG
