Christmas Fun

Well I cannot believe that it is almost Christmas and how quickly a term has gone. Your children have settled into life in Reception well and have  been busy doing lots of Christmas activities.

Over the past few weeks we have been having great fun making Christmas cakes , decorating them and also writing out labels.

First of all we had to weigh the different ingredients we needed to make our cakes. We then had great fun mixing it all together and it didn't get to messy !!

Next we placed some marzipan on top of our cake and we then had great fun rolling out icing to go on the cake. That part did become a little messy.

Finally we decorated them using different cutters and also using different coloured icing , before adding our labels.

On Friday the 16th December we enjoyed celebrating Christmas by having a party in class. We enjoyed playing pass the parcel , musical statues and also musical chairs.

Just as we were singing the song Jingle Bells , we heard HO , HO , HO , and  Father Christmas arrived in our classroom and he sat down and gave all of us a present. We were all so thankful and Father Christmas enjoyed listening to one of our songs from our play.

Thank you for the continued support you have provided to your children, with their reading and their words. Please continue to do these throughout the holidays , but also make sure you have lots of fun!
Thank you for your lovely cards and gifts and we would like to take this  opportunity to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
