This week we have been practicing hard for our Nativity, in between our normal learning. We have been taking inspiration from Michael Rosen. We watched him perform some of his own poems on the internet. We love the way he uses his face and hands to add great expression - that's what we are going to try and do in our performance!
We had a really great Christmas themed Links afternoon. There was a really nice atmosphere with Christmas music being played and a choice of decorations that could be made. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend.
Chapel Christmas Trees...
We also took a walk up to the Chapel in the village to see our Christmas tree in the competition. Art club made the decorations for the tree using lollipop sticks, glue, spray paint and glitter! We didn't win the competition but we enjoyed looking at all the other trees and have some good ideas for next years competition! We met Mrs Elliott there who answered some questions we had about the Chapel and what people do there. The food fayre was also going on at the same time so we saw some familiar faces from the village too.
On our way out we noticed the duck pond was half frozen! We threw things at the ice to see what would happen and how much pressure it could take before it cracked!
We're Going on a Bear Hunt...
Finally on Friday we went into Norwich to the Playhouse Theatre to see; We're Going on a Bear Hunt. Everyone really enjoyed the performance which was packed with songs, music and funny moments. We were lucky enough to be on the front 2 rows and so had lots of interaction with the characters!
Miss Arnold took some sneaky photos during the performance so you could see how much fun it was.
