C McKinnon: December 2018
We have had an exciting and very festive week in Base 3!
As a year group, as well as a Key Stage, the children have been working extremely hard to prepare for the Christmas service on Tuesday 18th December. The children have been practicing the songs and carols as well as making sure they know all their lines. The service is going to be absolutely fantastic so we hope you can join us.
During Thursday and Friday afternoon the children made their Christmas crafts for the fair. We made a range of Christmas tree decorations out of lollipop sticks such as Santa hats, Christmas trees and reindeer. Our elf, Jingles, even tried to join in but he just made a bit of a mess! We also made candy canes and wreaths out of red, yellow and green beads. These were very popular at the fair!
Friday morning was particularly exciting for the whole school. Santa and his reindeer came to visit us! Base 3 were extremely excited as the reindeer were right outside our classroom windows and one even tried to knock on our door! The children had a wonderful time learning about the reindeer and loved being able to see Santa and ask him lots of questions.
We have a busy and exciting few days coming up as we count down to the Christmas holidays. We will be continuing with our topic work to finish off our War and Peace topic for Autumn term, focusing on positional and directional language in maths and completing our writing for 'A Child's Garden'.

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...
