This week we have really enjoyed practising and performing our nativity. All the the children have worked so hard on remembering their speaking parts, the actions to the songs and acting on the stage. They all looked fabulous in their costumes too. Huge well done to all the children and their families too for their support in preparing for this. Here are some photos of the stars of the show:

We also had a visit from the Elf this week. The children were so excited to find a box left in our classroom with the elf hiding in it and a note from Santa. The children all enjoyed writing a list to give to the elf to pass on to Santa.
Here are some examples of their fantastic writing:
