We are starting each day here in Ash Class with a Christmas riddle advent calendar... Here is today's - see if you can guess what it is! Answer at the end of the blog.
I am usually hung on doors. Sometimes I can be a decoration. I am made from evergreens, twigs and flowers. I am a circular shape.
Next week, when the Mog's Christmas Calamity stories are finished, we will be writing our own Christmas riddles in English so watch this space next week for some of the children's own riddles. We have completed 2 Maths assessments and 1 reading assessment this week. Well done to the children for taking these in their stride and giving the tests their all. We've carried on with our Multiplication and Division topic in Maths this week and have learnt all about factors and factor pairs. In PE, we braved the cold to work on our underarm throws and target practise on Tuesday. We've had 2 science lessons this week to finish off our learning about rocks. We learnt how rocks can change due to weathering and erosion and then we learnt all about the rock cycle - as illustrated in the poster below.
On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to be visited by Father Christmas! He's a very busy man at this time of year so we are grateful to FONTS for organising this. All of the children were so pleased with their gifts - some lovely new books. We followed this with a brilliant Christmas dinner on Wednesday. Crackers were pulled, hats worn and brussels sprouts eaten! Thank you Mandy and Nicki for the amazing meal. We have lots more festive things to come including our carol concert later today, Christingle next week and much more...
Have a great weekend everyone.
P.S. Today's riddle answer is a wreath.
