We enjoyed making cinnamon scented playdough; it smelt so delicious we had to be mindful that it was playdough! We also painted pictures of the gingerbread man for our wall display and added googly eyes and real buttons to finish. We made movable gingerbread men, carefully cutting out the body pieces and using a split pin to join them together.
There was an element of excitement on Thursday as we set off to the local bakery in search of Gingerbread Reindeer that we heard were so tasty. We each had own money to take care of and went into the shop to ask for a reindeer. These were then packed into a paper bag and we carried them very carefully back to school. Though tempted to have just a tiny nibble, we saved them for home time. The staff in the shop said that we were very polite and had fantastic manners. Well done, Kindergarten!
Our topic next week is The Jolly Christmas Postman.
