Following on from this, we had fun painting gingerbread men. We then used pom poms for buttons and googly eyes to complete the look of our gingerbread men. We also had fun using a painting program on our interactive whiteboard (IWB) to design some gingerbread men. Carefully we sewed our own gingerbread man puppet, sticking felt buttons on and sticky eyes.
We enjoyed making ginger and cinnamon scented playdough – the scent was so delightful we had to be mindful that it was just playdough! We also made individual moveable 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, remembering how to cross the road safely by talking through our actions of stop, look, listen and think, in search of gingerbread reindeer that we had heard were so tasty. We each had own money to take care of and went into the shop to ask politely for a reindeer. These were then packed into a paper bag and we carried them very carefully back to school. Next we gently packed these in our bookbags ready to take home to enjoy. The staff in the shop said we were very polite and had fantastic manners. Well done, Kindergarten!
Our topic next week is The Jolly Christmas Postman.
