We spent a lot of time practicing for our school pantomime “Pirates of the Currybean”. We had fun learning lots of new songs. We performed a dance to a song called “Piratical Style” and recited a poem- “Percy’s Treasure Chest”. We dressed up in pirate costumes. It was such fun!
We found time for some Christmas Art too. We made Santa Claus and drew Rudolph. We think we did an amazing job!
Santa visited our classroom and gave us some Christmas pencils.
Look who won selection boxes in our Christmas raffle. I wonder why they look so happy?!
We learnt about Christmas and holiday traditions around the world. A big thank you to Tymek’s mum who showed us how Christmas is celebrated in Poland
and also to Amy’s mum who talked to us about Hanukkah. She taught us a song about a dreidel. This is a game that is played during Hanukkah using a four sided spinning top.
We loved her colourful menorah.
We impressed Mrs. Shirley with our maths skills. She has been teaching us about grouping in sets of tens to make counting easier. We decided we could do even better and grouped our sets of tens into hundreds and then counted our Unifix cubes in hundreds!
