Our topic this half term has been ‘Let’s Celebrate’ and we have spent time learning about all of the different ways people celebrate in the Autumn/Winter months. From Halloween to Divali to Bonfire Night to Christmas, we have explored celebrations through stories, music, art, cookery and problem solving activities. One of the highlights of this half term was our class trip to visit Santa in his grotto. We all used our words or sign to say ‘hello’ to Santa, and to say ‘thank you’ for the present he gave us. Our parents really enjoyed watching us perform ‘I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas’ in the Christmas performance. We wore pyjamas for our costumes and did an amazing job singing and using Makaton sign to perform. Happy holidays, everyone!

Our topic for next half term is ‘Frozen Fun’. See you then!
