Year 2 Candle Jars

The Year 2 children have been working very hard on a project set for them by Santa. Earlier in the term, Santa sent the children a letter asking for their help, as there had been a power cut in the North Pole. The children came up with an investigation which would help them to find the most suitable candle to send to Santa, which would allow the elves to work for longer in the dark so they could make more toys in time for Christmas. Out of the candles tested, the children discovered that the pillar candle would be the most suitable. The children then left the candle next to our class elf door, and our class elf, Figgy Jingle, took it back to the North Pole for Santa. We also each emailed Santa to inform him of our findings. A few days later, Mrs. Claus wrote to us explaining that the candle had been knocked over, so they needed our help with designing and making candle jars. The children came up with some excellent, festive designs before making their jars. Each one was unique, and the children did a fantastic job. Gwaith gwych, Blwyddyn 2!

Today the Year 2 children had a fantastic time celebrating Christmas in our class party. Lots of fun was had by all. The children enjoyed playing pass the parcel before settling down to enjoy their delicious plates of party food. (Thank you Mums and Dads – the food went down very well!) After food it was time for more party games, before finishing the afternoon with lots of dancing. (The Year 2 children certainly know how to move!!!) What a lovely afternoon. The children certainly got into the festive mood, and are looking forward to more fun tomorrow!

Snow…In Nursery!

As we haven’t had any snow yet, the nursery children decided to make their own. First they put in the special powder, added water, and stirred and stirred and stirred, until as if by magic…snow! They even found some little penguins hiding! Continuing the snow theme, the children also made some edible snowmen out of marshmallows. Don’t they look tasty!
