This week we heard the Christmas Story and then used stick puppets to retell it.
In R.E. with Mrs McLeod we talked about the fact that Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birthday. We thought about where he was born and related this to our lists we made for a new baby last week. Then we decorated a birthday balloon and added baby Jesus in his manger. It really tested our cutting skills too!
The children dropped leaves in puddles and watched in wonder as the ripples pulsed out from the point of contact with the water.
