Today was Little Bear's birthday.
Wow, what an amazing birthday
surprise we gave him!
We have been learning about the Jewish Festival of Lights called Hanukkah. We have made a Menorah lamp. During the eight days of Hanukkah a new candle is lit each day from the central feeder candle.
Today the reception class held a welcome party for our nursery children. Thank you Reception, we loved it!
This week in school we are enjoying exploring music in many different ways. We have been listening to different music being played, making music with instruments and making our own shakers to play.
We were even visited by a Jazz band from Runshaw College! They played for us and we learned about the different instruments they play - a trumpet, a trombone, a banjo, a keyboard, a cajon (a special drum box) and a tuba which plays very low notes.
This week we also hosted our first Welcome Wednesday of the
year and were delighted to have so many visitors!
Thank you for all those who were able to attend.
