Happy holidays one and all!

The holiday season is upon us and what a busy and enjoyable December we have had here in Year 1!

In IPC we did our last trip of the term to the city centre to sketch buildings for our Our World topic, back at school we used these sketches to produce beautiful Gent skyline pictures. We rounded off the topic with our Exit Point where we celebrated the diversity in our classroom by learning all about children’s home countries. Year 2 joined us to hear the presentations that each child prepared for home learning and also to share the delicious food brought in by the children- thank you parents for your efforts!

In literacy, we have been working on reading and reciting poetry. We have also been working hard at writing recounts. The children have been learning what makes a good recount and have been learning how to use time connectives in their written work.

We celebrated Alyssa’s birthday at the start of the month with an array of individually decorated cupcakes which she worked hard on with her mum over the weekend- thank you both. We also had a visit from Sinterklass who had a message for each child and a gift too! We ended the term with our Christmas show and some very cool hip-hop reindeers! Year 1 and 2 did a wonderful performance and Miss Rebecca and I are super proud of you all.   

That is then the last blog for 2018, all that’s left to say is I hope you all have a happy, restful and love-filled holiday season.  See you all in 2019.
