Recently, we have been working really hard with the other Senior Infants in Room 2 and Room 3 putting together our Christmas show ‘A Snowman at Sunset’. Yesterday, lots of our families and friends came to see our show! It was so special. We loved being snowflakes, clouds, winter-y children, Santa, reindeer and narrators!
Room 1 has had so much fun getting into the Christmas spirit this week. We learned all about the traditions associated with Sinterklaas and the 6th of December – we were lucky because there were some boys and girls in our class who mark this day with their families and they were able to tell us even more about it! In the afternoon, we put our shoes outside our classroom door in the hopes that Sinterklaas would visit us. A little later on, we heard bells ringing, and when we checked, chocolate coins had been left in each of our shoes! Thank you Sinterklaas!
We had also been doing a lot of work writing letters to Santa. We each drafted, edited and rewrote a letter to Santa – and we included a lovely drawing for him to enjoy too! We prepared our envelopes and stamps ready to pop in the post to go all the way to the North Pole!
On Thursday we walked down to the General Post Office on O’Connell Street to put our special letters in the post box for Santa. The GPO is a really big and important building and it was very busy. On O’Connell Street we were so impressed by the big Christmas tree and the even bigger Spire.
On our way back to school we had another special treat – we went to get hot chocolate and muffins! Yum!
We have had such a super week!
