We were really surprised when Ms Gilligan brought in Gingerbread and everything we could need to decorate them with (even the gumdrop buttons!!!!) We designed and decorated them in the morning time and then got to watch the Helix Panto - it was a great day.
Visiting the Crib & Christmas Jumper Day
A big thank you to our wonderful caretaker Robert who set-up our lovely crib again this year. He also put up a really festive backdrop where we could safely visit and have a picture taken when we were in our Christmas jumpers!
We really enjoyed the lead up to Christmas there was so much festive cheer we could barely contain ourselves!!! We really did light up Room 2 between the very special arrival of our Elf which we named Elfie and the decorations and artwork around the classroom! We had a very important mission this month with our Aistear theme being Santa's Workshop, our role-play area scenario was that Santa's most important toy-making machine had broken down and we had to fix it!! The boys and girls took it very seriously and judging by the wonderful Christmas they all had - the machine was definitely in full working order!
Spooky Fun in Room 2!
We really enjoyed celebrating our first Halloween in our new school! We had some spooky cauldron making classes, a dress-up day and our annual Witches Walk around our local area. We really enjoyed showing all our new friends just how creative and spooky our costumes were!
