We have been very busy writing cards and letters in ‘The Jolly Christmas Postman’ post office and have posted them in our class post-box. We are trying very hard at remembering to hold the pencil between our thumb and two fingers.  We practised our cursive style writing as we wrote our Christmas cards, letters and wish lists to Father Christmas.

We had lots of fun with paints and glitter this week. We used our fingers to print reindeer for our Christmas cards, and then used a black pen to draw on faces and antlers. We also painted and decorated a very sparkly Christmas tree decoration to hang on our trees at home.

We had a dress rehearsal of our Christmas Production this week; we enjoyed dressing up in our costumes and looking in the mirror, it was so lovely seeing our friends’ costumes too.

As the weather becomes colder, the children are practising putting their own coats on independently and are now trying to do their own zips up. Well done! On this note, it would be extremely helpful to have all hats, gloves and scarves clearly named.

Our topic next week is Christmas!
