It's Christmas!!

School's out for Christmas!
We had a visitor called Geronimo who kept a good eye on us over the weeks (see if you can spot him in our Christmas tree!).

The girls also worked very hard for our second class assembly where we talked about the advent wreath, the candles and their symbolism. They spoke and sang excellently and should be very proud of themselves! 

Merry Christmas and enjoy the break!

Bottle Belly Snowmen

Last week we created Bottle Belly Snowmen using plastic bottles, cotton buds, pipe cleaners and socks! Thanks to parents for sending in socks and bottles. The children brought some very original ideas to their snowmen and they look fantastic!

Over the past three weeks, we have constructed and painted volcanoes, as well as make them erupt! 

Firstly we created our volcanoes by wrapping newspaper around plastic bottles to form a conical shape.

Next we papier-mâchéd our volcanoes in preparation for painting it. 

Next we painted our volcanoes!

Finally we made our volcanoes erupt!! Firstly we put some washing up liquid and baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) into the bottle. To create the reaction, we mixed in some vinegar. See what happened below!

Play: A Tale of Two Storeys

On Thursday we took a trip down to the Town Hall to see the play "A Tale of Two Storeys". Despite the weather, we had a great time!
