It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

 

December already and we have really entered into the spirit of our ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’. Rather than getting gifts from an advent calendar on the countdown to Christmas, this year we are giving gifts to others. We have made a super start with bringing in a selection of food, toiletries, and other essentials to give to the Bishop’s Stortford Food Bank. Thank you so much, Year 6!

In our D&T lessons this week, we have been making good progress with our Punch and Judy puppets. We have painted faces and begun to sew the clothes for our puppets. A few of us even surprised ourselves with our sewing skills!

“Next year, I’ll have to go on the ‘Great British Sewing Bee’. I didn’t know I could sew like this!”

 In Computing, we applied our skills and experimented with various features to create an avatar.   We then uploaded our avatars in the ‘twinspace’ of the eTwinning / Erasmus+ Cinderella project. We also had the opportunity to edit our profiles and introduce ourselves to the other children participating in the project from other countries. We replied to other threads in forums, expressed our opinions and added images to our replies. 

Remember to get your Victorian costume ready for our Victorian themed day next Thursday!

Wrap up warm and have a lovely weekend.
