Ho-Ho-Ho!


This month the little elves in Sonas Class have been super busy! 

We have been reading stories such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Peace at Last  and The Three Little Pigs. The children are learning to sequence their stories and retell them using pictures and phrases. We have adopted the characters for little dramas based on the stories and we have houses from straw, sticks and bricks..

Ms. Quinn came to visit our class for a couple of days and she brought her guitar. This was brilliant fun...singing songs and learning about instruments is something the children in our class really enjoy.

Now, the Christmas Spirit is filling our room. We are listening to, and learning Christmas songs such as Jingle Bells and Frosty the Snowman. We have been really artistic making paper plate snowmen, Santa faces, Christmas trees, Snowflakes and Christmas stockings. During these activities we have learned a lot of cutting skills, colour identification, counting skills, shape recognition and group-work skills. We cannot wait for Santa to come this Christmas and see how good the children have been this year! Phew...it's been a busy month, but in Sonas Class we like keeping busy!
