We have been learning all about 2D shapes in class. We learned about squares, rectangles, triangle, circles, ovals, hexagons and pentagons. We then went on a shape hunt around the school to try to spot some of these shapes in the school environment...
We had so much fun dressing up in our pyjamas for Children in Need! We loved the book swap and were all very happy with our new books... Have a look at us all below!
The children did amazingly in our Christmas Nativity performance! They sang, acted and joined in beautifully... We were so very proud of them all!
To celebrate the Christian Nativity Story, we visitied Seasalter Christian Centre. The children took part in dressing up as Nativity characters, they made their own Christingle and even had a lots of fun bouncing on a bouncy castle! This was also our first trip on the new school mini-bus and the children loved every minute!

We have had fun painting and using the computer to create our own portraits! Can you spot anyone you know???
We have been learning to use the different areas of the classroom independently. We now know where all the equipment is kept in the classroom, including the puzzles and games.
We have learnt how to control different tools such as paintbrushes, glue sticks and scissors safely and carefully.
We have been using our imaginations in the home corner and have had lots of fun making drawing, making patterns and playing with our new friends.
We have loved trying Mrs.Ball's fantasic recipes each lunchtime!
We have been reading the stories 'Stanley's Stick' by John Hegley and 'Stick Man' by Julia Donaldson. The children were then inspired to use their imagination to come with their own unique stick creations. Have a look at some of them below...
