Christmas Celebrations in 2nd & 3rd Class!

2nd and 3rd Class boys and girls have been very busy for the past few weeks decorating the classroom, writing stories and having fun as Christmas approaches!  We really enjoyed doing lots of Art & Craft from the various strands of the Primary School Curriculum.  We painted some love pictures of Rudolph, Santa, Christmas Trees and Angels and displayed them in the classroom!

We also made felt stockings, sewed them together and decorated them with different characters…

The boys and girls painted glass jars with holly, presents, santa claus and rudolph and then we each placed a tea-light candle into the jars.  They will look very well when they are lit up on Christmas Eve!

In English the children wrote wonderful stories about Christmas adventures.  Come into the class and have a look at them.  Some boys and girls wrote stories that were 5 pages long!

We also made Christmas decorations for our trees at home.  We used Hama Beads to create the designs and then they were ironed by a teacher to melt the beads together.  They look so nice on the wall in our classroom and will look nicer on the Christmas tree!

In Music, we learned a song called “The Christmas Alphabet”.  The children worked in pairs to depict the meaning of each letter and the word is on display in our classroom!

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year!
