Miss Phillips: December 2018
What a busy and very festive week we have had!
We have been preparing for our Nativity, it has come together so well and the children have worked very hard to learn their lines, remember when to say them and where to stand on stage. They all sing so beautifully as well! We are very much looking forward to sharing our nativity with the school on Monday and the parents on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening.
The whole school had their very special treat on Friday. Santa came to visit and he brought his reindeer with him as well (we didn't catch them flying as they have to rest before the big day). It was a lovely morning for the children and it was thoroughly enjoyed by every child in school. Santa even left them a little treat!
Our Thursday afternoon was spent preparing the biscuits we were going to sell at the Christmas Fair. The children decorated a few biscuits in different festive shapes and they did a fantastic job. They tried very hard so that the biscuits would look fantastic to sell. Our biscuits sold out at the Christmas fair and the children did a great job of selling them too!
We have another busy week ahead of us with all of our Nativity performances to look forward to. We will also be working on our text, The Day the War Game, in Literacy, exploring shapes further in Maths, checking on a Science experiment and completing some more pages in our topic books.

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
