What have we been doing this week?
We've been learning to re-tell the Christmas nativity story. We've been sequencing pictures from the story and writing about it in our own words.
We've been continuing with our work on making Christmas wrapping paper by designing our own repeating patterns of 3 and 4. There have been some really beautiful designs!
We've been sharing stories about Christmas traditions in our families.
We went to see the Jungle Book production at the Unity Theatre. Mrs Partridge was delighted to hear children saying how much they'd enjoyed it!
WE enjoyed a delicious Christmas dinner in school - yum yum!
We've been learning to sing our Class 3 Christmas Carol 'O Christmas Tree'.
We watched a Carol service in the school hall, performed by students at Hawarden High School
We performed the Christmas carol 'O Christmas Tree' in the end of half term assembly.
