Frosty the Snowman

Although it is not snowing outside just yet we here in Room 10 managed to welcome our own snowman. Instead of using paintbrushes, for this art lesson, we used cotton buds to paint him. We had to dab the cotton buds carefully onto the page to create a dotted effect. We think Frosty looks great in all his wonderfully coloured hats, scarves and gloves. Have a look for yourself…

Check out Room 10

For Christmas, here in Room 10, we decided to take a more modern look at Christmas trees. We designed the trees using different patterns, colours and shapes.We discussed what kinds of images we could use to create these trees and came up with a lot of great ideas. Have a look below…

Christmas in Room 10

We are all very excited about Christmas, we have done lots of activities to prepare for it. We really enjoyed making our Christmas village and our Christmas trees. They took a lot of hard work but we think they look great! We made a very special Advent calendar, every day we cover another number on Santa’s beard.  Take a look at the picture! We also drew chalk and crayon Winter pictures.

Mrs. Spring gave each class a very special calendar too, it is a lovely Advent calendar. Each day, we open one window, we talk about the nice picture and one person reads the prayer for that day. We really enjoy doing our Advent calendars each day.

We had a very special visitor to our school last week; Santa dropped off lots of bags of magical reindeer food! We have been buying the bags each day to sprinkle outside our houses so that on Christmas Eve, the reindeer will have enough energy to bring Santa to each child’s house around the world.

German Christmas Day

Today we had the pleasure of having Ms. Redmond and Ms. O’ Connell visit the school and they didn’t come empty handed! They brought a huge range of German foods that are eaten in Germany over the Christmas time. Ms. Redmond brought in a number of German Christmas decorations as well. We would like to thank them for giving their time so generously to the school and wish them a Happy Christmas.
