It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…..

I am sure the children have told you that we have an elf in Primary1 – The Elf on the Shelf!

He sits on our Advent calendar and sometimes leaves us letters.

He asked us to make some advent calendars, which we did. We colour a picture in every day to help us count down to Christmas.

We have also made some Santa counting games and have enjoyed Christmassy activities in Learning Areas….

But the biggest excitement was the mess in the classroom this morning! Today’s letter said that Santa had come to take the elf back to the North Pole because there had been a CATASTROPHE! We had lots of discussions around what the catastrophe might be!

When we looked at the sand tray, there was white powder everywhere. There were also big footprints (Santa’s we thought.)

Mrs Jamieson had to clear it all up. When we came into the classroom after lunch, the Elf had turned the powder into magic snow – it doesn’t feel cold and it never melts! Amazing and VERY exciting!
