Christmas Theatre Show

What a treat for Chestnut Class today…. we had a theatre company ‘Boo to a Goose’ come in to Saplings for a Christmas performance where we joined them.  The children were treated to Christmas stories, songs and even snow.  They giggled in delight when the snow was falling and loved joining in with the songs and actions.

It was great for Saplings and reception to see each other again and share in an amazing experience.

Christmas preparations

Chestnut Class have had great fun making decorations for our class hoop and the school Christmas tree.  We made Christmas trees for the hoop.  We started by painting pine cones green then decorating them with glitter.  We painted a cork red and glued it to the base.  Each decoration was strung to our hoop and hung from the school hall.

We also made crackers for our school Christmas tree.  We used cardboard tubes and wrapped them in crepe paper.  We tied each end using ribbon.  Some children came up with, and tried to write, their own jokes to put inside.  Some added drawings inside as a present.  They then decorated them.
