Christmas in Morpurgo Class 2020

 

Our Christmas Hoop

We measured using rulers and protractors to draw and create nets for our parcels, then decorated them in a silver and white theme. We also made our own snowflakes. It was then displayed with other classes hoops in the hall.

Researching Christmas Traditions in Different Countries.

 

We found out interesting ways people in different countries celebrate Christmas, how they say Merry Christmas and what they call Father Christmas. 

Christmas cards

Our designs this year involved sewing and adding beads to create a Christmas Tree.

Christmas Dinner.

We had a lovely Christmas dinner  with all the trimmings. We enjoyed pulling crackers, wearing hats and telling jokes. 

It's Panto Time- Oh yes it is!!!

We watched a live stream pantomime- Rapunzel. We enjoyed joining in with boos and hisses and the dancing and cheering. We had a choc ice treat.

Morpurgo Christmas Disco.

We had a mini disco to end the Christmas term. We danced to our favourite party dances, played four corners, Christmas statues and pass the snowball.

Christingles.

Some of us made

Christingles for our song

'It was on a starry night.'

We learned about the meaning of the Christingle in the Christian Faith.

The orange- represents the world.

Red ribbon- represents the blood of Jesus.

The lit candle-represents Jesus as the light of the world and God's love for the world.

The 4 cocktail sticks and fruit- represents the 4 compass directions- North, South, East and West and the  four seasons- Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter .

The foil- represents the protection of children, this is linked to the 'Save the Children Society.'
