We had a wonderful time continuing to get ready for Christmas. All sorts of exciting things happened at school. We had a visit from Santa. He popped in one afternoon to drop off some early presents.
We also got a message from him a few days later. It was great to find out that he’d got back to the North Pole ok after his visit to school. You can watch the message by following this link SANTA’S MESSAGE
We were super busy in the run up to Christmas making decorations for our families. We made Salt Dough and had to bake it in the oven to make it go hard. See below for the recipe and you can have a go at home.
We had a fun party which everyone loved. Can you see the hats that we made ourselves? Can you tell your grown up how you made your hat?
On the last day of school it was Christmas Jumper Day. We got to dress up and also raise money for charity at the same time. We’re yet to find out the total but look out and we’ll let you know.
We hope everyone had a great Christmas break and a very happy new year. All the best for 2017!
