It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like…

This week Little Ossies have been hard at work preparing our classroom for Christmas.

We have started to make a special something to give to our families. And of course it goes without saying; it will be spectacular!

Obviously we can't reveal what we are working on, but needless to say a lot of effort is going into making this gift.

We have also started preparing to make a special area in our room, ready to help a “big-bellied fella in a red and white suit”.

We transformed a booth from the weekend's election by cutting out a curvy shape to make it look like Santa's Sleigh.

We then got out LOTS of red paint and got busy roller painting.

We had to use lots of our teamwork skills to paint our group project. Particularly when you have 4 people working in the small area of the back of the sleigh!

We can’t wait to get busy in Santa’s Christmas Workshop next week!
This week we have also started looking at a special sort of calendar. While we normally look at calendar in our classroom every day, this calendar is one which we do on the Interactive WhiteBoard (IWB). It is an advent calendar which has a new activity for us to look at and interact with everyday. The calendar also has fun games and puzzles which we are really enjoying doing. The calendar is set in a European Outdoor Market.

Completing one of the many puzzles available in the Advent Calendar.  This one was a real challenge at 42 pieces.

There is also a Christmas Cookie Memory Game. The game is timed so you can try to beat your own best time.

On Friday we discovered a special stall in the market which sold Christmas decorations. The shop kept us busy, because we had to decorate the baubles.

We wonder what will be coming up in our Market next week.
