We had two surprise visitors to our class this week. After a trip to the church this Friday for our Advent service we were presented with Mary and Joseph to take back to our classroom. We had the privilege of starting them out on their journey around the parish. \n\nWe heard about the story of the birth of Jesus and enjoyed looking at the pop up book. \n\nThis week we also had a lot of fun trying on our costumes for the Nativity play we are performing at the end of term. We all have a wonderful costume and can’t wait to get up on stage.\n\nEarlier in the week we had a surprise when we entered the hall for P.E. Mr Lewis had arranged the gymnastics equipment all around the hall. We were soon climbing, balancing, crawling, sliding and squeezing in out and over the apparatus. It was great fun and we were all very confident and brilliantly balanced.\n\nWe also found time to write some stories about a magical journey that we had imagined that we went on. We also made a huge step forward with our spelling and addition.\n\nNext week we shall be rehearsing our acting and singing as well as looking at some magical poems. We may even find some time to bake some biscuits for a class party we are planning. Before all this we will be having a visit from Colin the Crocodile to teach us about road safety.
