‘Twas a very festive sight this Friday in Maple,
as 30 students wore Christmas Jumpers, a very festive staple.
As festivities begin in Tanner’s Wood, Maple Class started by learning the meaning of Advent and reasons as to why it is celebrated (Whilst sporting some fantastic Christmas clothing!) This culminated in Maple Class’s Christmas Wreath in which each pupil wrote some of the preparations they make each year for Christmas, deciding which were the most important to feature on their part of the wreath.
Maple class celebrated anti-bullying day today with all sorts of activities, including designing and creating individual badges, which they have been wearing proudly, creating logos in a school wide competition and all sorts of discussions with many different people and teachers in the school to improve their knowledge of how to identify and stop bullying. We also spent part of today learning about the value of teamwork and working together. As you can see, we used teamwork to create amazing things out of newspaper and to aid us in some fun games!
