12.01.18 Winter and the Stick Man

Happy New Year to you all!
It was lovely to see the children come back into school so excited to share their Christmas holiday experiences with their friends. During our circle time we shared our favourite presents and then wrote thank you letters to Santa. We discussed that some people make New Year resolutions and came up with our own wishes for 2018 and made our own 'wishing wands'.
Both Reception classes worked together to create a 'Winter' themed display in the hall. This involved collage, paint and a big art attack creation!
After listening to the story 'Stick Man' we went off for a walk to find some sticks. Can you guess what we wanted the sticks for? Of course we wanted them so we could create our own Stick family!
We have been using blue plastic cups to create our own ice castles and we even saw some penguins making an appearance! We saw some amazing designs, super balancing and great team work.
