The Christmas Countdown

December has been a very exciting month in our classroom. We were thrilled to learn that our group entry in the Credit Union Art Competition is through to the national final! This year we couldn’t record a Christmas show because of Covid so we made a special calendar for our families and friends instead. We worked very hard and drew all of the pictures for the calendar ourselves. We had a little party in class to celebrate and really enjoyed dressing up for the occasion. We have been reading ‘The Polar Express’ storybook this month. Inspired by this wonderful story, we worked together to paint our very own Polar Express train. As a reward for being so good, we had a Polar Express Day in class on Friday, 17th December. We got to change into our pyjamas in school and board the Polar Express train. While aboard we were served delicious hot chocolate just like the children in the story. Then we curled up with warm blankets to watch the movie. We had a great day and lots of happy memories were made!
