My class loved entering the classroom this week and seeing a selection of Christmas books, a Christmas tree and advent calendars too.
I created an activity of wrapping boxes for Xmas presents and they absolutely loved it! The children dressed up like elves and wrapped the presents carefully. It also linked into the English lessons of using the language of first, next, then and finally!
I found this idea on an Instagram page so I tweaked it to fit our class puppet Gertrude. A simple assessment of finding out who can write their numbers and letters the write way around. It’s been a huge focus this week as some children are still finding it tricky.
Check out the link of this resource and download it for free on my resources page on Sunday!
I was amazed at how many children chose to sit and do this activity!
Dojo points definitely helped.. some children received 10.
The children have also been busy creating repeated patterns and using an iPad to capture it. The use of technology is great in provision. I often use them when the children build models too!
Just a few more weeks of the festive fun, we can do this!
