What a week we have had!
You wouldn’t have guessed it was our last week of Year One…we have been so busy!!
We have listened to many stories about the birth of Jesus and have created a lovely piece of artwork celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. Our shiny star art took a lot of patience and soft hands so we didn’t rip the aluminium foil we were drawing on! We love our finished drawings of baby Jesus glowing in the light of the star.
We have shared our favourite family Christmas traditions…from waking up early on Christmas morning to getting our photo taken with Santa to writing cards for our friends and wrapping presents for people in our family.
One tradition we all do is leave cookies and carrots out for Santa and his reindeer…we thought it was would be nice to create a special plate for this tradition…so we did!! We designed our plates and have worked hard to follow our design very carefully…we have even attached a cookie cutter so we can make fresh cookies for Santa!
We enjoyed a special afternoon tea to celebrate a great year together! We used our tomatoes from the garden to make pasta sauce as well as using our beetroot in a chocolate cake…yum!! We realised that cooking is a great maths activity…we have been learning about capacity so we were able to make connections to measurement!
Our cooking was a huge success…empty plates are a good sign!! The best part of spaghetti is slurping it through our lips…and having it all over our face!
Thanks Chef Roberto…we couldn’t have done it without you!!
We have been working so hard…we deserve a holiday!!
