Buddy the magic elf

Santa sent a letter a couple of weeks ago telling us about Buddy the elf. He came to stay for a couple of weeks. Santa did warn us that Buddy was mischievous, little did we know just how cheeky he would be!!

He's been dancing with the wooden man, dangling from the wishing tree, pretending to be a Christmas star, squashed in a glass and yesterday he opened one of the presents under the tree!!!

Thank you for the lovely cards, presents and well wishes. Have a wonderful Christmas and we will see you all in 2014.

This week we have been making Christingles in class. 
We learnt how to make a Christingle and the meaning behind all the different parts of it. 

We had to get an orange - this represents the world.

Next we put red tape all around the orange - this represents Jesus' love going all around the world.
We then placed a candle in the top of the orange - this represents Jesus as the light of the world.
Then we carefully placed 4 cocktail sticks around the orange - these are for the 4 seasons.
Finally we placed sweet dried fruits and sweets onto the cocktail sticks - these represent the good things that God gives us.

It was quite tricky to make and involved us using a range of fine motor skills but we were very pleased with our results. Have a look at our slideshow showing some of us making the Christingles and some of the finished results.

What a busy week we have had.

Phew, what a week! We've been so busy.

Buddy the magic Elf has already been up to mischief. On Monday he was swinging on a zip wire between the speakers!!!
He's been quietly reading a Christmas story and yesterday we found him in the Wishing Tree.

On Wednesday we went on a stick hunt to find small branches for our reindeer food bags. The reindeer food is for sprinkling on the ground on Christmas Eve.

We've been making baubles for our Wishing Tree. Tallulah would like a lollipop maker, Olivia SS would like a phone. There are requests for a yoyo, a Baby Anabelle and a cat.

Outside we've been making dens and singing songs from the Sound of Music.

The biggest highlight this week was the Foundation Stage production of Mary's Knitting. It was fabulous!!

Here is the weekly slideshow

Who is Buddy the magic elf?

Today FS2 received a letter from Mr S Claus. He told us about an Elf called Buddy who was on his way to see us. We searched everywhere but couldn't find him, we didn't even know what Buddy looked like.

Everyone thinks Buddy will be wearing green clothes.

Visit the blog to find out if Buddy arrives tomorrow

Golden Children

Congratulations to Alex and Olivia S-S for getting their names into the Gold Book

I am nominating Alex to have his name in the Gold Book because of his positive attitude and behaviour at lunchtimes recently. He is showing just how responsible he can be.

Olivia has been making a real effort over these past weeks, to display the right kind of behaviours I expect to see in class. I know she really wanted her name in the Gold Book and her excellent attitude and behaviour has paid off. Well done Olivia, I hope to see this continued into next term too.

Can you make a list of the things you can see?
Think of some sentences to describe what is happening.
