This week we started our new topic 'A Christmas Tale' where we not only explore Christmas stories, but also find out about how others spend their Christmas.
Our week began with a visit to our local charity shops to find out about people who are not as fortunate as us at Christmas. We visited Barnardo's, The British Heart Foundation and Oxfam to find out how we can help those in need. We decided to write letters home asking for support with our very own donation drive.
We have also started a sewing project! We are making Christmas stockings like the ones mentioned in the infamous 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' poem we've been reading in English. This week, we have been learning how to thread our needle and how to stitch neatly onto a piece of fabric ready for next week when we can start putting together our stockings!
We're very excited to be learning this new skill!
