A visit to see Father Christmas and his Reindeers 🎅🏻🦌

We had an incredible class trip to the Hollybush Garden Centre to see Father Christmas and his reindeers! We had an amazing time and it was a magical experience full of Christmas spirit. 🎄🎅🏻✨

We fed the reindeers which was a fantastic experience, the reindeers were called Comet and Micheal! ⭐️🦌 The reindeers loved their food and they were so happy to see Deer Class! 🥰

We visited Santa’s grotto and had some beautiful photos. Santa was amazing and he had even learnt Makaton which is amazing! We were very impressed with Santa’s signing! 🎅🏻🥰

We even went in Santa’s sleigh!

We were so excited to go! Jayden did a little happy dance before young on our trip! 🕺🎄⭐️

Before we went to see Father Christmas, we posted our letters in the Christmas post box we made! Our letters were beautiful, well done Deers!

This week we finished our topic “People Who Help Us”. We have loved learning about heroes in our community. We have talked about jobs we would like to do in our future and what careers we admire. Here are some photos of our session, we discussed all the careers, then wrote about people who help us and what they do for our community, by writing independently or using colourful semantics to build sentences.

We have loved our science session, we have learnt what animals, humans and plants need to survive. We have also learnt about a wide range of habitats too. We have learnt some key words and definitions too… organisms, bacteria, habitat and environment! 😊⭐️

We had a wonderful time having our Christmas Dinner with our friends. We enjoyed listening to the music and enjoying a yummy Christmas dinner! We requested our food beautifully! 🎄⭐️🎅🏻🥰

Tommie told us a fantastic joke this week! Tommie always comes to school with amazing jokes to tell! This weeks joke is “What did the wave say to the beach? Nothing, it just waved”. 🤩😆

Here are some fantastic photos of Joshua and Tommie sharing a hug, they have developed a lovely friendship this week. ⭐️

Our Champion this week is … Jayden! Jayden has been very kind this week, using his kind words and actions. Jayden always makes everybody smile and he is a ray of sunshine! ☀️😊 Well done Jayden! We are so proud of you! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
